Meals

When are meals served?

Breakfast is served in the dining room from 7:00 to 9:00 am. Lunch is at your convenience with your cooler lunch or shore lunch kit (your choice). Dinner is a fixed menu. It is coming hot out of the oven at 5:00 pm (so you can still be out fishing again at 6:00 pm).

Is the dinner time flexible?

What if I want only dinners?

We are very flexible with meal options. The American Plan, our best value, includes 3 meals per day, but you can also opt for a plan that only includes dinners.

What if I change my mind about my dinner options?

We are very flexible. You can always come to the lodge and order off the menu for breakfast or dinner and pay per meal.

Back to Meals top | Back to page top

Can we bring our own wine or liquor to the Dining Room?

No. We have a Liquor License at our main Dining Room which prohibits you from bringing your own wine and liquor to dinner.

Back to Meals top | Back to page top

Can I bring my own food?

Yes, you may bring your own food. However, most of our guests find that food in Canada is more expensive, and they don't really save money over our package plans. Plus, our cooks specialize in making delicious and affordable, made from scratch, home-cooked meals that will save you time and hassle.

Back to Meals top | Back to page top

What else do I need to know about meals?

We are very flexible and we specialize in happy guests. We are known for our fantastic food and warm hospitality. Our cooks collectively have over 100 years of experience in good old fashioned home cooking.

Fishing

Do you offer "catch and keep" or "catch and release" fishing?

We offer both. Four of our main lakes are "catch and keep" per your fishing license limits. Most Waterfalls Lodge guests keep a few walleye and perch for shore lunches, releasing the smallmouth and larger northern pike. The smallmouth bass and northern pike populations are self-sustaining, and we are able to replenish this excellent walleye fishery each year. The Lodge supports an 18 year long walleye hatchery and rearing pond program in conjunction with the local Anglers and Hunters Association and the Ministry of Natural Resources. As a result, the May-June 2006 issue of In-Fisherman's "Walleye Insider" magazine selected Tube Lake (the lake Waterfalls Lodge is on) as one of its "Top 12 Picks" for "North America's Top Walleye Waters".

Fishing on the remote outpost lakes is "catch and release". There is no reason to take fish from these pristine fisheries.

Can I buy my fishing or hunting license at Waterfalls Lodge?

Yes, at our Camp Store you can purchase your fishing, bear or moose licenses. Our store also offers live bait, tackle, drinks, snacks, ice, gas, oil, postcards, stamps, shirts, hats and souvenirs.

What kind of tackle do I need to bring?

You'd be surprised how simply we fish here. So, we'd suggest bringing your rod, reel and tackle box. Start with what you have. If you need anything while you're here you can find a large selection of tackle at our Bait & Tackle Shop to buy as you need it. Be sure to take a look at our Fishing Tips page for additional info.

When are the fishing and hunting seasons?

The northern pike and lake trout fishing is fantastic during the month of May. Northern pike fishing continues to be great from June through October, however the lake trout are suspended in 75-80 feet of water during this period. Walleye season opens the third Saturday in May. They are in the shallows then and remain there until the 3rd week of June. Thereafter fish for them in the early morning and late evening. Smallmouth Bass season is OPEN all year, with Catch & Release fishing until after their spawn.

We hunt for moose in mid-October. From September 15 through October you can make use of our ATV trails and logging roads to hunt for grouse.

How do I know where to start fishing on the lakes?

Upon arrival our American Plan guests will be treated to a lake orientation cruise by the owner or one of our experienced guides. On this guided tour of the lakes we'll give you valuable information on lake features and current conditions.

Back to Fishing top | Back to page top

What do I need to have on the boat to go out on the lakes?

According to the small vessel regulations, every time you take your boat out you are responsible for having a life jacket (proper size for you), a safety kit (with floating rope, operating watertight flashlight, and whistle), a bailer, a paddle, and an anchor. These items are supplied with your boat, and they must remain with the boat.

Do you offer WiFi access?

We have always provided free WiFi if you are near our office, but in 2012 we added several repeaters to extend the WiFi network throughout the grounds to most of the cabins and the Dining Lodge. PLEASE NOTE that we are rural and got the fastest connection we could, but our WiFi will not support streaming or large downloads. It is fine for checking mail, browsing the web, and using Facebook though. Our guests comment that they love keeping connected to the world and we think that WiFi is a nice amenity to offer.
