My Canadian Fly-in Fishing Trip of a Lifetime

Easy To Get Here

Excellent Adventures Cat Island Lodge & Outpost Camps are located straight north of Minnesota. The easiest way of getting here by car is via International Falls and driving to start your Canadian fly-in fishing trip. Our air base is 210 miles north of International Falls, 6 miles east of the community of Red Lake in Cochenour, Ontario.

You can also fly into Red Lake on commercial airlines and we will pick you up right at the Red Lake Airport and shuttle you to our lodge or outpost camp of your choice.

Miles Of Fishing Options

As we fly you to your remote lodge, you’ll see absolutely a huge wilderness area, and forty to fifty percent of it is covered in water. Because of this, it offers some – if not the best – freshwater fishing experience for those who want to fish all day in a peaceful, quiet and clean environment.

There are opportunities for many kinds of fishing experiences, trophy walleye, trophy pike, lake trout, bass and perch, to mention just a few. Generally, the species will vary from lake to lake, but with us you can find a place where you can fish any of them without having to take your boat from one lake to another.

Variety Of Accommodations

Just like the variety of fish, we also offer a variety of fly-in outpost cabins on remote secluded lakes or stay at our all-inclusive fly-in remote Cat Island Lodge, where we take pride in giving you the ultimate Canadian experience.

Get away from the busy pace of a roadside RV park or camp. Fly in to a really premium type of fishing vacation at an affordable price for everyone.

So depending on your time, budget and the kind of fish you want to catch, we can totally customize your next fishing vacation to Canada.

Imagine you fly into the remote lake, we drop you off in the Canadian wilderness at a picture perfect spot, check to see if everything is working at the cabin – and then we say goodbye to you and fly away. The lake is then yours for your entire stay.

This is truly a great adventure!
