If you are wondering why there are so few reviews of this fine establishment here is the answer… Everyone sees that it has high ratings and realizes that the word is already out! This place is fantastic! Don't expect to lose much weight because you are out in the wild however because they feed you incredible food from herring to... More

My family and I have made multiple trips to Pine Portage Lodge and Lake Kabinakagami over the years, and we have never had a bad experience. In fact, the Watson family has bent over backwards to make our stay even better than we had expected on multiple occasions. One trip in particular, Whiskey Jack was unavailable so my family was...

This was my 4th trip and I have never been disappointed. I travel a lot and my trips to Pine Portage are always my favorite. The accommodations are exactly what I want at a fishing lodge. The staff are all very attentive, friendly, and helpful. The views are unmatched, the fishing is some of the best, the service is exceptional,... More

Our second trip here and even knowing what to expect we were blown away AGAIN. Fishing was super--plenty of fish. Food and hospitality amazing. I have been to 15-18 different places in Canada to fish, this is at the very top of list. Guides Pat and Luke were pros!

This is our groups second trip to the lodge and it was amazing. Betty, Bill, supported by Mary Ellen, Violet and the lodge staff run an exceptional lodge. The fishing was fantastic with several personal bests recorded. It's a walleye factory!! We had the housekeeping plan and stayed in Wolfs Den. It was first class. The boat ran perfectly, the...

This was my 5th trip over the past 35 years. Once again, nothing but first class!! They had a recipe for chowder to use on our shore lunch, so we asked if we could try it. No problem- they supplied us with everything we needed. The boats were nice, the food was great, the hospitality outstanding. I wish there was... More

I am sorry that you felt they did not get the services you had paid for on this fishing/hunting trip. This package was a "donation" our company made for FREE to another organization from which you purchased in a raffle. All of our lodge guests, who book directly with our company, are always credited for lost time/services caused by weather.... More

"Fishing the Finest" is an understatement. I have stayed at many Canadian wilderness camps in the past, but this one surpassed all expectations. Fishing was great, the staff was exceptional and the overall stay couldn't be better. Food at the lodge was top notch. Also, can't say enough about the expertise of the pilots at Watsons Skyways. As someone who... More

Pine Portage Lodge is a first class operation from start to finish. It starts with the office staff in Wawa and the way they treat every customer as if they were family. The pilots that fly their planes are true professionals. Their main concern is to get the customers to the lodge on time BUT never sacrificing the customers safety.... More
