Fishing and Environmental Questions



What to bring

Our houseboats are fully furnished with all the comforts of home including cooking utensils, pots and pans.

Bring enough food and beverages to last the week. This allows more time to catch the big one instead of running in for supplies mid week. All of our houseboats have two refrigerators and a large pantry with more than enough room to stock a weeks supply of food.

If you are joining us for a fishing trip, bring the fishing gear that you will need. Fishing rods, lures and minnow buckets. If you are coming during moose season, you will need your hunting gear and warm clothes as the nights are cool.

All the houseboats are equipped with lifejackets. As per the Canadian Boating regulations, your lifejacket must be readily available and must fit. The lifejackets on the houseboat are adult jackets for chest sizes 35-50 inches and a weight rating of over 90 lbs. If you have children joining you on your trip, please bring the appropriate size of jacket for your child.
