Big Canon Lake Lodge in Northern Ontario is located in a remote area of northwestern Ontario, 25 miles northwest of Vermilion Bay, accessible only by float plane. We offer an outstanding variety of fishing that includes Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Muskie, and Northern Pike. When staying at our Ontario Fly In Fishing Lodge, we fish our main lake, the adjacent river system and five portage lakes.
Big Canon Lake is our main lake where the Ontario Canada Fly In Fishing Lodge is located. Over 75 miles of shoreline surround this deep, crystal clear, spring fed fisherman’s paradise. Ranging from three to four miles wide and about eight miles long, this lake has an area of 8.8 square miles or about 5,600 acres. Famous for its Lake Trout and Smallmouth Bass, Big Canon also produces the occasional trophy Northern Ontario Muskie Fishing and Northern Ontario Pike Fishing. This lake has never been commercially fished. (A boat & motor for every two fishermen is maintained at the Ontario Fishing Lodge.)

- Taken from an article entitled "Walleye Fishing the best of times"
"Perfect fishing trip" may be an oxymoron, but this much I can say without hesitation: We've been doing this for years, and Big Canon is unquestionably the best place we've found. It isn't the easiest place to get to from Denver, but, if you've ever considered a fly-in to the remote wilderness of Canada, it's tough to beat. And compared with some of the gouging our group has endured through the years, it's reasonably priced.
