We are fulfilling a lifelong dream owning a fishing camp in the north and sharing it with our guests. We do not consider ourselves “the owners”, in reality we are only the caretakers of our chain of lakes for fishing. As caretakers, it is very important to us to make sure that we don’t deplete this fishery for future generations to come.
While you are staying at Waterfalls Lodge, Conservation Fishing Licence Limits will be promoted (2 Walleye, 2 Northern Pike, 2 Smallmouth Bass, 25 Perch and 1 Lake Trout). We welcome our guests to eat fresh fish while you are staying with us and encourage our guests not to take any fish home.
Please return all larger fish for future breeders. For those of you who are looking to take a trophy fish home, we encourage our fisherman to have a replica of their “fish of a lifetime” made instead of the old traditional skin mounts of a dead fish. We will help and assist you in locating a reproduction specialist that will provide you with a “real life” replica. Our fisherman who have “real life” replicas also have a real feeling of accomplishment along with the bragging rights for their friends to see. In addition, we know that when our fishermen tell their story about their trophy fish that their TRUE fish is only GROWING each year after! A conservation fisherman with his “real life” replicas are the ONLY fisherman that can truly brag about how the big one REALLY got away!
It’s our hope that all current and future guests will endorse our conservation policy with open arms. After all, it is in everyone’s best interest for today and tomorrow.
