World Class Bass Fishing

Feel the exhilaration of a Large or Smallmouth Bass on the end of your line.

Crooked Lake was stocked with Largemouth Bass decades ago and has very little fishing pressure as we practice Catch and Release; therefore, the abundant Bass have reached record weights in Crooked Lake, with tournament size fish up to 7 pounds having been caught.

  • Largemouth bass are one of the most aggressive fighting fish in the world and will give any fisherman a challenge. The perfect spot for your own private fishing tournament!
  • Smallmouth bass are also plentiful and pound for pound, one of the toughest fighting fish. Travel the length of Crooked Lake and find the perfect spot to enjoy the thrill of Bass Fishing.
  • With the exception of some shore lunch or menu items, the Lodge adheres to a policy of catch and release.
  • Perfect as well for children, and non-fishermen learning to fish, as there is constant action, with a bite almost every cast. Putting worms on and taking fish off hooks, can be a constant exciting pastime, even from the docks. Great entertainment for families and groups who enjoy the wild side of nature!

Breathtaking Photography

Containing more than 50 landform vegetation patterns, these wildlands have limited or no recent history of logging. The spectacular Canadian Shield with low-rolling topography, rocky outcrops, and treed natural shorelines are reminiscent of Group of Seven paintings. As well, there is abundant avian and wildlife, making it a Photographer's heaven.
