This was my second trip to Slippery. The last time was over 15 years ago. This time I took my wife and 2 boys, ages 8 and 13. We had a great time. The guides were fantastic and very good with my boys. The fishing has improved dramatically. We caught many fish including; numerous 28 inch walleye and a couple... More

We have been coming to SlipperyWinds 5 straight years now and every year it just gets better and better. We love the accommodations , the food is fantastic, the staff treat us like family. The fishing keeps getting better every year as we keep learning more about the 5 lakes we have access. Our last day this year we caught... More

This is the best fishing experience I've ever had. There are a few things in life that everyone needs to experience and a Canadian Fishing Trip is definitely one of them. Slippery Winds is the place to do just that. We have enjoyed 5 trips to this great lodge and every year is a little different and seems to get... More

As a group of four, we just spent our third year up at Slippery Winds Wilderness Resort. If anything over the past 3 trips, the fishing and service has only gotten better! The fishing was great, and the variety of fish to catch due to the various lakes available for fishing is unbeatable. We went from catching a 15 pound... More

On advise from a party which has made many trips to this lodge, we spent our first trip at Slippery Winds Resort the first week of June. We were overall very pleased. The staff was pleasant, helpful and took good care of us. The food was excellent and plentiful. The boats and motors were in good working order. The plastic... More

Ginny and I just returned from Slippery Winds Wilderness Resort! Wow! It had been five years since we were last there and the fishing was even better than we experienced last time. We caught all six species of fish and had the opportunity to catch and release two trophy walleyes and two Lake Trout. We found the professional services of... More

This is an update to a review I posted earlier this year. We went back to Slippery Winds in July for what has become our favorite week of the year. I can honestly say that in the almost twenty years I have been going there the camp has never been run better. Bob the camp manager was attentive and proactive... More

My 2 borthers, my son and I recently finished a 4 night three day fishing trip at Winds. The staff was friendly and helpful. The local guide gave us free information on where and how to fish. The boats were working and in good shape. The American Plan meals were good, and not having to bring food and cook let... More

I've been going to Slippery for 12 years with my son. This year my wife filled in for him and said it was a great time and that she'd be happy to go back. Being catch and release, the fish are plentiful and good size. Great that there is such a variety of fish and that there are several lakes... More

This is a fisherman's dream. We went last year and loved it. The average walleye was around 25" with the largest exceeding 30". We caught everything from Lake trout to Smallmouth. The Team of Butch, Barry, Clyde and family was awesome. We will return very soon. If your planning a Canadian fishing trip look no further. This sure beats an... More
