Roger Lake features some of the finest small mouth bass fishing found in Northwestern Ontario. In addition to smallies, Roger Lake also hosts tremendous Walleye and Northern Pike. The lake is approximately 8 miles long and measures depths up to 65 feet. Unique in its shape, it lends itself to productive fishing in all wind conditions as it is a well protected body of water allowing the fishermen to fish any time, in any conditions. As a part of the famous English River system, Roger Lake is healthy in that it is not land locked, instead producing a steady flow of exchanging water thus producing excellent spawning conditions. A number of rapids are available for fast action fishing as well as a spectacular 40' water fall fishermen and photographers alike will want to experience. Hidden bays, exposed reefs, weedy bays, sandy and rock rubble shorelines as well as the rapids all offer a variety of fishing conditions for anglers.
Accommodations for anglers are truly deluxe. Roger Lake has two 3-bedroom cabins which are 700 feet apart, each with their own dock. We will take a minimum of two people in each cabin. Our two cabins at Roger Lake will accommodate up to 12 people, in comfortable, clean quarters with large dining rooms for those festive group dinners. There's a large barbecue, indoor shower, hot and cold running water, and a wide, sunny deck overlooking the lake. We supply you with six boats, equipped with reliable 15 h.p. motors. All the equipment you'll need is included in the package price. You only need to bring fishing rods, tackle, bedding, and groceries.
This is the perfect place for a wilderness getaway with added comforts. The cabin on Long Lake is complete with boardwalk paths, a screened gazebo by the water's edge, knotty pine interior and half log siding exterior, will accommodate up to 4 people. The view from the cabin is nothing short of magnificent with huge rock bluffs to protect from high winds.
Long Lake will provide you with loads of northern pike and walleye action, often even right off the dock. Plan for a delicious feast of fresh fish. In Pressure Lake you will find a hotbed of scrapping walleye and hefty northern pike. Have your camera ready, as moose, bear, eagles, loons, and beaver all make Long Lake the perfect place for a memorable getaway.
