This was my 3rd visit to the Yellow Dog Lodge. We had an amazing time. The last two times I was there it was July (24 hours of sunlight) but this time it was August and I was able to photograph the Aurora. Everything was perfect from the fishing to the food and everything else in between. We had great... More

Just spent 4 amazing days and 3 nights at the Lodge with a group of ladies. If you are looking for: - awesome fishing (with knowledgeable guides) - amazing staff - fantastic food - great scenery & relaxation - little bit of everything Than look no further as YDL is the place, no disappointments here

I spent 4 days out at the lodge with a great group of ladies. We stayed in one of the cabins and the accommodations were excellent, plenty of room for up to 5 people. The rest of the facilities were excellent as well, docks on 2 different lakes with fishing boats, there is a wood fired hot tub and sauna,... More

Yellow Dog Lodge was one of the best family vacations! I do not enjoy fishing, nor did I once cast a line to catch a fish during this trip, and I still had the best time! The gang at Yellow Dog Lodge spoiled us with spectacular food, many laughs, and put up with our late night shenanigans. Gord took us... More

Fishing isn't just for the guys. Ladies, there is plenty to do for the whole family. Our family group of 19, ages 6 to 60 had plenty to do. Hiking, hot tub, steam room, fishing canoeing or just enjoying the view. The best part for me was the amazing meals and I didn't have to do anything. The shore lunch... More

It was a guys trip to get in a few laughs and some good fishing. Gord ( the owner) made sure both were acomplished. We flew in day one early getting on the dock at YD lodge before 8am. Gord was there waiting for us, he informed us breakfast and coffee was waiting for us in the lodge. We were... More

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
