Busy mornings are back!!!!
The countdown is on! It is not long now, until we see the docks bustling with eager fishermen ( May 21st to be exact), excited and with a renewed sense of optimism of life getting back to “our normal!”
We are thankful for the support from our Canadian guests who for over these past couple of years have trusted us with their safety while on a fishing vacation; and to our American guests who late last summer were able to push through the challenges of travelling across the border.
We are now thrilled with the announcement that effective April 1, 2022 testing requirements for our American guests to cross the border have been lifted for fully vaccinated travelers. Mask mandates in our province will be lifted effective March 21st, 2022.
The safety of our country, province and communities has been the priority over the past two years and now with the confidence and ability to move forward in a protected manner, we trust you will find the fishing amazing, our angling packages and services 1st class as always.
For our American visitors, each person in your group will be required to register on the Arrive Can mobile app for incoming travelers, which you will be required to show at the border. This will allow entry and applies to driving and flying into the country. Please note there may still be random testing at the border. We expect more updates in the following days and months, providing updated information as it is released.
We appreciate your loyalty, understanding and patience through what seems to have been an unimaginable time in our lives, certainly putting what is important into perspective.
May is just around the corner and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces.
Jackie, Jody, Meredith and Rick
Welcome to Anderson’s Lodge
Ontario’s Premier Fishing Lodge
Why People Choose Anderson’s Lodge
Anderson’s Lodge is your setting to experience the true magic of the pristine Canadian wilderness. From all-inclusive American Plan Packages to Deluxe Fly-In Outpost Packages, we can accommodate any groups’ needs. New “top of the line” equipment every year including new Mercury engines and a 21’ Bowrider specifically designed for our guests! Sumptuous food including that amazing “shore lunch”, impeccably clean first class accommodations- there is nothing else in Sioux Lookout like it, along with professional guides and service staff that provide you with remarkable customer service – we are committed to providing you with a quality fishing vacation. It’s all in the details, and with a professional management team to ensure that all elements of your package are taken care of, we demonstrate exceptional organization and service excellence for you!
It’s All About the Fishing
Now let’s talk about the real reason for taking a fishing vacation – FISH! For over 40 years, Anderson’s Lodge has been the ultimate Canadian fishing lodge for world class Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Lake Trout and Muskie fishing trips. We offer a total of five species, not just the two or three that you find at other camps. To ensure your fishing experience is complete, we provide the options of fishing up to 9 lakes including the legendary Lac Seul. Planning on a day to day basis ensures your quality fishing experience for when you want to fish and for what species.
Take a look at the photo gallery from this past season and pay special attention to our list of names in the Sioux Lookout Master Angler Release Awards listing. Most areas don’t have a Master Angler Awards Program let alone pay their guests’ entry fee. We even take the time to register your Ontario Angler Award Releases with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters Program. Our Junior Angler Release Awards Program has become very popular for our guest 16 years and younger – it is a friendly fishing competition that provides for additional fun and education on the importance of fisheries conservation and management.
The Best Ontario Fishing Packages
Anderson’s Lodge provides for a variety of fishing vacation packages that will accommodate the novice and first time anglers to the fishing professional! Choose from our Deluxe American Plan Bowrider Package, American Plan Package #1, American Plan Package #2, Housekeeping Package or a 1st Class Fly-In Outpost vacation. Enjoy the convenience of reserving from 3 nights and 2 days of fishing through to 7 nights and 6 days of fishing, arriving and departing on your preferred day of the week!
Fly-In Outpost packages are also designed with convenience and flexibility in mind. Providing for trips 3 days to 7 days, flexible arrival and departure days along with new, top of the line equipment again provides for a first class fishing vacation.
A Great Dining Experience
For those that are reserving one of our three American Plan packages; be sure to check out our American Plan menu which shows you why your dining will be of the highest quality. Unlike other lodges there are no fixed meal times. You will dine in air-conditioned comfort each evening between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., with no line up’s at a buffet of food that has been sitting for hours. At Anderson’s Lodge meals are prepared fresh to order each evening, served table side by a friendly, professional server. The packages we offer are about you, and what works best for your total vacation experience.
Fly-In Outpost guests are welcome to join us for a great dining experience at Foxy’s Dining Room prior to their departure to the outpost camp the next morning.
If the best cabins are not enough to convince you, take a look at the equipment that is supplied in your package. We offer two types of boats from the main lodge; the first is a 16’ Lund with a new 30 h.p. four stroke Mercury engine, or if you prefer more comfort and luxury, we offer you a custom-built 21’ Bowrider with a new 150 h.p. Mercury four stroke engine and a new 9.9 h.p. Mercury trolling engine. From the Fly-In Outpost camps – 16’ Lunds with new 20 h.p. Mercury four stroke engines. Very few camps offer choices, not to mention new motors each year.
A Comfortable Stay
You know your search for an excellent fishing lodge has been successful when you check in and find your gorgeous cabin nestled in a quiet, serene setting among the towering pines with a calming view of the lake. You breathe a satisfied sigh of relief as you settle into a place that feels like coming home! Make sure to pay special attention to the page featuring our cabins with all the comforts of home and totally first class compared to any other Ontario fishing resort.
These first class cabins extend to our Fly-In Outpost operations as well. Tuktegweik Bay, Kakebeka Narrows, Tom’s Landing and Pickerel Narrows located on the northeast end of the legendary Lac Seul are new, state of the art facilities for Fly-Ins, providing some of the most appreciated comforts of home right in Mother Natures’ own back yard. Our fishing vacation packages will always be about providing our guests the best, most comfortable accommodations, regardless of the type of package you reserve.
Now really for the best reason you need to come to Anderson’s … It’s the people! The single most important asset of any operation is the people. In the past it has been said that all of the people in our operation have 4-wheel drive attitude, then a guest said “hey, wait a minute…staff at Anderson’s Lodge have an all-wheel drive attitude, there isn’t anything they can’t or won’t do to please a guest or to get the job done right”.
Make sure to look at the page featuring our guide staff. There isn’t a team in Sioux Lookout that can begin to compare. Never mind Sioux Lookout, probably the best guide staff in Northwestern Ontario. With all of these guys working together every day on these lakes, you want to bet they are going to put you on fish in a heart-beat – with a “let’s get it on” attitude!
From housekeeping, yard and equipment maintenance to dining service – our service staff know how to treat you right! Friendly, attentive, professional – we are a dedicated crew who will not be satisfied with second best. We believe the key to success is doing ordinary things “extraordinarily well” and where the focus is on you and your successful fishing vacation.
Seeing is Believing …
They say seeing is believing – well take a look for yourself! Our Photo Gallery Page is just a small example of shore lunch caught for the day or records set in our Master Angler Release Awards Program. These are experiences created and memories shared, fishing action to re-live over and over in stories told to future generations. These anglers include first time guests and many are families that have fished with us over the years, returning to experience the fantastic fishing Anderson’s Lodge has to offer – and the experience never gets old!
