As every fisherman knows, a variety of habitat and structure is crucial to a thriving fisheryâ€”thatâ€™s why Uchi Lake abounds with big walleye and northern pike! Uchi Lake is home to numerous islands, weedy bays, fish-funneling narrows, rocky points, and feeder creeks. But thatâ€™s only the structure thatâ€™s obvious above the surface.
Below the surface of Uchi youâ€™ll discover sharp drop-offs, boulder-strewn underwater islands, expansive flats in 6 to 15 feet of water, areas that attract massive schools of fish from spring to fall. Itâ€™s not unusual to catch walleye and pike from 5 to 40 feet deepâ€”all in the same day! So whatever your fishing preference, be it trolling, shallow casting, or plumbing those dark, inky depths with jigs and spoons, Uchi has it all. And if youâ€™re one of those fishermen who knows the deadly effectiveness of a wiggly minnow, leech, or night crawler, fresh live bait is available every day.
Our number one priority at Uchi is to help you catch fish. Thatâ€™s why the staff always knows where the fish are and what they’re biting on. If itâ€™s your first time with us, and youâ€™d like to fish with a guide, we can arrange one for you. But youâ€™ll soon discover that the fishing is so good on Uchi a guide really isn’t necessary.
At Uchi, you come and go as you please. Fish after dinner and right up until dark if you like. Or, you can hang around the lodge in the evening, listen to the loons as one of our staff lights a crackling bonfire in front of the lodge.
