Ontario Fishing Adventure

Get away from it all and enjoy a Canadian Wilderness Experience at Fireside Lodge. Three and a half hours from the Minnesota border, Fireside Lodge is road accessible, and is the only resort located on Little Vermilion Lake.

Little Vermilion is the largest in an eleven-lake system. Approximately sixteen miles long, Little Vermillion is a long narrow body of water with a lower and upper section. These spring-fed waters are deep and cold with numerous bays, reefs, and deep weed beds that have created excellent fish-holding structures. The lake forage consists of whitefish, cisco, suckers, perch, various minnow life, and crayfish. With the combination of all these factors, the unpressured-waters of Little Vermilion offers our guests some of the best sportfishing Canada has to offer; year after year.

We at Fireside Lodge follow a catch-and-release program to protect the resource and the sport. Therefore, along with ten additional lakes accessed by creeks or portages, this multi-lake system offers exceptional sportfishing. Just imagine having eight lakes to pursue Northern Pike, six for Smallmouth Bass, six for Muskie. Three of these lakes had been closed for fishing since the 1930's but are now opened for anglers.

Fireside Lodge Accomodations

Fireside Lodge is a unique structure, built in 1904. It provides a homey meeting place for friends, new and old, to gather and enjoy each other's company, or to just sit quietly and savour the moment. A bag of freshly popped corn will hit the spot while sitting by the large fireplace. The more active will take on the challenge of a game of pool or ping-pong. Books, puzzles, and board games are here to fill some quiet time. The spacious screened-in porch allows you to enjoy our fantastic Canadian sunsets. You will enjoy hearty home-cooked meals in our dining room and a friendly atmosphere where you can share the stories of the day.

Excellent Canadian SportsFishing

We at Fireside Lodge want to preserve the exceptional sportfishing on Little Vermilion Lake. To do so, we ask our guests to follow the catch-and-release program that we believe will keep the fishery abundant. Your efforts, along with ours, will enable Fireside Lodge to continue to be the place to catch the big one. We would like to have the opportunity to share Fireside Lodge with you, your family, and your friends. Let us make your long-awaited trip a memorable one.
