Ontario Walleye Fishing Muskie Fishing Birch Dale Lodge

Welcome to Birch Dale Lodge The Fishing Eagle Lake is one of the largest lakes in Northwestern Ontario. Its diverse structure combined with healthy weed-beds and countless feeder-streams produce game fish in great numbers and sizes. Walleye fishing is outstanding with guests catching between 20 and 50 Walleyes in a day. Guests also commonly catch large trophy Walleye in the 8 to 12-pound class with a few each year reaching 14 pounds. Eagle Lake is also the birthplace of the slot program for Northern Pike and Muskie. This conservation method has been in place for over 10 years and now our guests are astounded at the numbers of Northern Pike in the 15 to 25-pound range that are being caught. This could also be said about Muskie, which is what Eagle Lake is famous for. Eagle Lake has a 54-inch minimum because of the availability of giant trophy Muskie. Eagle Lake produces unbelievable numbers of Muskie between 40 and 45 inches with quite a few each year in the 50 to 56-inch range. Eagle Lake is also stuffed with Lake Trout, Smallmouth Bass and Perch. Lake Trout in our lake have an astounding average size of 8 to 10-pounds. Small good eating size Lakers and big trophy Lake Trout up to 30 pounds are available. Perch are everywhere and can be found in great numbers. Eagle Lake might be the best bass fishing lake in Ontario. Not only are Smallmouth Bass found in great numbers, their average size is unbelievable. You don't even have to drive far from camp to run into Smallmouth Bass as big as 7 pounds. On an average day you can catch 30 bass. There are days where you just lose count because they are feeding like crazy. Many years ago Sam Bruetsch pushed his way into the deep wilderness of Northern Ontario and in 1948 started building the original outpost camp. Today Marcel Pinettes continue to run Birch Dale Lodge and Campgrounds in the fine traditions created by the Bruetsch Family. The Hunting We are located just west of Dryden Ontario and south of the town of Waldhof. The Dryden area over the last few years has become the hottest spot for Whitetail Deer hunting in Canada. Big bucks with impressive racks and heavy bodies are all over the place. Even though most outfitters in the area have started offering Whitetail Deer hunts, there are so many thousands of square miles of wilderness compared to a handful of outfitters that the population of Whitetail Deer remains high. Government biologists are saying more hunting needs to be done to prevent overpopulation. We welcome you to come and help us manage our deer population with either rifle hunts or bow hunting. Since the cancellation of the Black Bear hunt in 1999, the Black Bear population has skyrocketed. It is estimated that there are more Black Bears than people in Northern Ontario. Our Black Bear hunting guests enjoy an 85% harvest rate with Black Bears as big as 500 pounds being taken. The harvest rate would be higher if our hunting guests did not have the confidence to pass of smaller bears and wait for a big old male. The Lodge Birch Dale Lodge also offers many family activities and local attractions. There are also a variety of packages available to fit your needs and budget. We have housekeeping cabins, which can be upgraded to American Plan. We also offer camping for RVs, Campers, Tents and 5th Wheels. Please explore our web site and feel free to ask us any questions.

We were only here to camp a few nights, but I loved the camp. Great people and the restaurant was amazing, had steak and ribs that owner Marcel grilled on the charcoal grill. Also spent some fun time at the lounge with staff and a few American fishermen who have been coming there for many years. Great stay!
