Five of us just finished a great 3-day, 2-night visit to Yellow Dog Lodge. The fishing was fantastic as we caught MANY fish including Lake Trout (up to 8 lb.) and Pike (up to 40"). The Lodge fitted our needs perfectly. The guides (recommended for rookies) were absolutely first rate. The food (including the shore lunches!) was terrific as well.... More

First time visit to Yellow Dog Lodge - Loved the location, the atmosphere, the staff and the facilities. Gord and his staff and crew are second to none in service and getting you to the places where you can catch BIG FISH. Slept on a barge, in a tent with my bro-in-law - we both snore. Hedy makes some awesome... More

This will be the 4th trip to the lodge for us. We keep going back to the same place, Yellow Dog Lodge. The facility, the staff and the atmosphere are spectacular. Oh and the fishing is second to none. Eddy

My husband and I spent 2 days at Yellow Dog Lodge in August 2012, and he's still talking about going back. The small but attentive staff made us feel very at home. We stayed in the main lodge, which we loved, but there are also private cabins available. The location is great. Positioned at the juncture of two lakes, you... More

Spent a couple of days in the very late summer at this well established lodge under new management. Attention to detail with the care and safety of clients is evident.This is a nice place made better.

My Wife and I spent a weekend at Yellowdog Lodge and were amazed with the great personalized service. We loved getting into the wood fired hot tub in the evening after a long day of amazing fishing. Gord is an amazing host and we will be back!

The Yellow Dog crew are always on point. Friendly, accommodating and present. Some of the best fishing I've ever experienced. Relaxing mixed with exhilarating. Very clean and the food is great. There was always some great home made baking available, along with tea, coffee or juice. The hot tub in the evenings was a bonus. I've been there at least... More
