We took our 2 young girls to Maynard Lake Lodge and we had the most amazing time! We were lucky enough to get to go out onto the lake with Josh not once, but twice and could not have asked for a better experience. Our girls caught their first fish, we had delicious shore lunches, walked some incredible bush trails, my husband even got to give Muskie fishing a try, and of course we were surrounded by amazing people. The food was awesome as well!! Can't wait to go back to this beautiful and make more memories! Thank you Josh, Kayla, Storm, and Axton!!
After two earlier trips to Maynard Lake with "the guys", I decided to organize a trip with my 3 sons along with my best friend and his son this past summer. It was an incredible trip that surpassed all expectations and will be remembered forever.I have to mention that I have done somewhere around 12 - 15 fishing trips to NW Ontario fishing lodges. I have organized friend trips and corporate trips over the past 25 years. Maynard Lake stands out as the best, and that is why I will continue coming back. Josh & Kayla along with their team are a cut above the rest in many significant facets of their operation. Here are a few things that stand out compared to some of the other lodges I have fished with previously: They are organized! Details and requests for your trip are asked for, noted and fulfilled! Cabins are super clean, well cared for and recently built or updated! The staff is so far beyond any other I have been around, they are a well oiled machine trained to take care of all your needs! The boats and motors are new and well maintained. Your boat will be scrubbed clean, gear organized and loaded with your requested drinks, food and supplies everyday like magic! The fishing is diverse, challenging enough without being too challenging, and has some incredibly unique terrain including rivers, creeks, waterfalls and endless structure. Four species of game fish in one body of water that far north is hard to find! I don't even know where to start regarding the food. I have been to other fishing lodges where you are denied second helpings because of the excessive cost of supplies at "fly in" locations. Let me promise you that you'll not ever go hungry at Maynard! The food is outstanding, and the portions were never limited. When you package all this together with niceties not even mentioned such as fresh coffee delivered to your cabin each morning, and a bucketful of ice each evening at cocktail time, you begin to understand why Maynard has become the lodge of choice for us veterans. I am a bit hesitant to write this because I really don't want the secret out, but these guys deserve it because they are that good!…
I have been fortunate to be a guest of Maynard Lake Lodge over 20 times. Most of the time with a large corporate group (30+). A very remote and scenic location. Wonderful cabins with 24/7 electricity and running water. Meals prepared by a professional chef that are out of this world, including a huge fish fry shore lunch at a secluded picnic spot somewhere on the lake shore every day. A large staff that understands the word "Hospitality". Thanks for another fabulous year Josh and Kayla. Make sure you add a fly-in trip to Maynard Lake Lodge to your bucket list.

I was able to spend 3 days at Maynard. Fishing was very good. Boated more walleyes than I could count. Josh and his crew were great hosts and made the trip just about perfect. The meals were pretty good- the shore lunch was especially well done! All in all a place I would highly recommend!
