The Burditt Lake (also known as Clearwater Lake) area is perfectly located far enough from major cities that fishing here is a destination.
The Clearwater-Pipestone chain of lakes offers an endless supply of breathtaking scenery, Canadian wildlife photo opportunities, and some of the best Northwestern Ontario fishing! This chain of 11 lakes presents an incredible array of water clarity and underwater structure, which ultimately provides excellent fishing for walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, lake trout, and muskie.
The close proximity to the international border makes this area a top choice for American anglers. Whether it’s a world-class fishing trip, or simply a chance to get away from it all, this lodge can accommodate.
