Remote Fly-In Fishing At Its Best
World Class Fishing at your Doorstep
Sunny Days are Great for Fishing
Bright sunshine on the tree lined shore sure makes for an awesome background for your trophy pics. By the way, the sun rises before 5:00 am during much of the fishing season, and sets past 10:00 pm. Do the math, that's plenty of time to catch a few trophy fish.
Rain or Shine - Fishing Guaranteed!
Rainy days only slow us down long enough to add another layer of rain
gear. The fish are hungry no matter the weather and we have plans to go
hook a few trophies each and every day.
You don't have to go far to start getting that
feeling that the next trophy might be just within casting distance.
There's no question, the fish are here.
Every year countless Northern Pike in the 30" to 40" range are caught & released. Monster Northerns in the 40" to 50" range are not uncommon. A legitimate shot at battling giants over 45 inches makes for awesome fishing every day you're at the lodge.
Have we told you yet that Pike are a fantastic fighting fish, on spin casting gear or on a fly rod? Choose your tackle, cast your lure/streamer, and get ready for a battle.
Golden walleye in the 2 - 6 lb. range are abundant and are easily caught on simple rigging. During the month of August we have some of our best walleye fishing right off the dock.
A spectacular looking fish and top of the menu. You can catch Walleye and Pike with the same lures and same gear, but typically Walleye will be in deeper water. I guides will help you pick the right spot.
As an added bonus to already unbelievable fishing, Arctic Grayling, the “Sailfish of the North” can be found a short 5 minute boat ride from the lodge.
These are a light tackle fish especially suited to fly fishing and their acrobatic fighting display must be experienced.
When you come to Cree River Lodge, you will not be disappointed with the facilities, food, service—or most of all—the fishing. Because we are a small lodge, we and our staff have the opportunity to give all our guests very personalized service. We take pride in giving our guests the type of service we like to receive when we are on vacation.
“As an outdoors writer for the past quarter century, I've had the opportunity to fish a great deal of water with a great number of people, from the far north to Mexico. I can truly state that never have I spent time with better, more experienced anglers than the folks at Cree River Lodge. I felt comfortable from the moment our boat touched the dock at Cree River until; sadly it was time to depart. The fishing, food and hospitality were top notch and I am eagerly awaiting round two with those big pike and walleye.”
“I have fished a lifetime to catch the quality of fish I battled with at Cree River Lodge. The pike fishing is so insane I had to make time to fish for walleye and arctic grayling—I love first world problems like these.”
“I have been in outdoor media industry for 11 years, and in that time I've been able to travel to some amazing places to fish. But I can say that of all the incredible locations I've visited, none has stuck with me more than Cree River Lodge. I have an insatiable passion for pike on the fly, and I truly don't believe any experience will ever top the fishing at Cree River. It was as close to paradise for a guy in love with toothy fish on the fly as you can get. If I could visit every year, I would.”
“Cree River Lodge is a truly outstanding destination for giant pike! In the vast river system there, you can catch huge ‘gators in weedy backwaters, rocky river sections, and in wide-open lakes—loads of pike over 40 inches, with some pushing 50! If you get worn out by these monsters, take a break with a hot walleye bite, with most fish over 17 inches and some close to 30 inches. Finally, big grayling are waiting for the right spinner or fly pattern in the fastest river sections. The guides and accommodations are awesome, too”
