Below is a new tour video of our main Loch Island Lodge location (filmed June 2018). It’s a quick highlight of the docks, our cedar strip boats, the inside of Cabin #1, walking to the lodge with the big decks outside, and then the inside views and the dining room. Not to mention the bald eagle calls, and early morning light and still water. Signs of a great day ahead, for sure…
This past summer and fall, we’ve added or improved decks for all cabins on the island, and completed the boardwalks between, with railings too. More pictures of all 6 cabins are on the Loch Island page. And we have other accommodations at Camp Lochalsh and our Outpost Cabins up and down the lake. Something for everyone, and groups of all sizes! And several travel options for you as well.
A big thank you to Mark Melnyk for putting this video together during his stay with crew last June, filming The New Fly Fisher TV episode we highlighted last week.
Great to see many of you at the fishing show last week. Today through Saturday we will be at the Northeastern Ohio Sportman Show. Then our next shows are starting the last day of February (Outdoorama, Detroit / Novi, MI) and in mid-March (Ultimate Sport Show, Grand Rapids, MI). Get more details here. Stop in and see us at the booth!
– Enjoy Mark’s tour video below, and we hope to see you all again this year on the lake! The eagles, loons, pike and walleye await…

PS – On our old site, you were welcomed with a loon call that you hear all over the lake… you can still listen here!
You can now view the new episode of The New Fly Fisher TV show, when last June Mark Melnyk and crew came by rail to visit our lodge and some of our portage lakes for some great Brook Trout fishing with our guide Ryan. They experienced our unique shore lunch offering walleye-wings, with Taylor at the fire. You don’t have to head to the portage lakes to get some great, solitary fishing – as our big lake is full of prized Walleye, Northern Pike, Whitefish, Perch and more. Other travel options available to get to us. The video shows the wilderness adventure that awaits you…

We had the pleasure of having Mark Melnyk and crew from The New Fly Fisher join us last year for some great speckled trout fishing. Just got word that you can view the full episode this week starting this afternoon…
