Welcome to Uchi Lake Lodge
Nothing generates more excitement or can provide more adventure than a Northwestern Ontario fly-in fishing trip. From the moment the float plane roars up its engine and takes flight from our float plane base in Ear Falls, to the first cast into the Walleye-stuffed waters, your adrenaline will be pumping. Uchi Lake is one of the top catch-&-release only fly-in trophy fishing lakes in Northwestern Ontario. The original builders of the lodge recognized right away that a lake with such an unusual amount of trophy Walleyes and Northern Pike needed to be protected forever. We carry on that tradition, to ensure you experience the best fishing you can possibly imagine.
Walleye are the dominant species in the lake. Most guests can expect to catch 40 to 60 Walleyes in a day and then there are fantastic days where guests claim to have caught over 100. There are some smaller good eating size Walleyes but the lake's claim-to-fame is the availability of gigantic trophy Walleyes. 24 to 28 inch Walleyes are common and throughout the week many 30+ inch Walleyes are caught-&-released with the occasional fish reaching 33 inches. We have fabulous Walleye fishing. If you want the main focus of your fishing vacation to be trophy Northern Pike fishing; you will not be disappointed. Big trophy Northern Pike are available with 35 to 40 inch pike being common and during the summer there are many in the 40 to 45 inch range being caught and released, which is touching the 25 pound mark. Uchi Lake is capable of producing 50 inch Northern Pike. We have been called the best fly-in catch and release fishing lake in the region, which is why we have a 90% return rate.
Uchi Lake is a fly-in fishing lodge that caters to you by offering both American Plan and Housekeeping Plan fishing trips. The cabins are big, clean and roomy and some cabins are fully equipped for housekeeping. There are wooden walkways between all the buildings to make walking easier for people. The cabins have wood burning stoves that keep the cabins cozy warm, or for people that want privacy and have a fire indoors. Boats and motors are newer, well maintained and comfortable with swiveling padded seats. Delicious home-cooked meals are served in the main lodge from our friendly and curtious staff. If you like to eat, then Uchi Lake Lodge is to place to be. Meals include Roast Turkey, Rib-eye Steak, Cornish Hen and other culinary delights, along with sweet desserts and baked goods. If you have any special dietary needs, please inform us when you book your vacation.
Activities and Moose Hunting:
There are many summer activities, other than fishing. There is swimming, exploring, nighttime bonfires and fabulous wildlife viewing with photo opportunities being available. Bald Eagles, Moose and protected Woodland Caribou are abundant, smaller animals and birds-of-prey are commonly seen on the shore and in the sky. There is a high population of Moose in the area and each year in September for the archery moose hunt we receive 4 bull tags. Our Moose hunting guests continue to enjoy a 100% success rate.
