Shawanabis Lake

This lake is cold, clear and productive. Six miles long, its 40 islands, countless bays, reefs, and points provide excellent walleye structure. Several small rivers run into the lake. At the southern tip, Boulder Creek is deep and winding, with good breeding spots for trophy pike over 30 pounds.

Shawanabis Creek enters the lake in a short steep rapid where a highly oxygenated pool draws whitefish and walleye at dusk, dawn and overcast days. Several excellent walleye lakes are just a short portage away from stashed fishing boats. There are several holes over 130 feet deep, home to gorgeous lake trout. These ‘lakers’ are lean and solid, with almost no fat.

Our Shawanabis Lake Fly-in Outpost is remote and isolated as the only lodge on this lake. When the roar of the departing floatplane faces away, you are left with the silence of the boreal forest. Shawanabis Lake is six miles long, with many islands and bays. The abundant rocky shoals provide the perfect cover for the Walleye, Northern and Lake Trout. You can explore Shawanabis Lake and nearby lakes by canoe, kayak or boat and motor. You can swim right off of one of the many sand beaches, sauna, bird watch, fish, paddle or just soak up the tranquil wilderness. The cabin will sleep 8 people, perfect for family outings or a fishing getaway.

Stay here and have the whole lake – plus many surrounding lakes – all to yourself. Absolutely pollution free, there may be no healthier or more delicious eating fish left anywhere on the planet! Check out our Maps & Permits┬╗
