Get your summer catch here!

Here at Elk Lake Wilderness, we offer endless fishing opportunities for the whole family. Regardless of your fishing style or level of experience, you can be sure to catch plenty of walleye, perch, northern pike, and bass. When you are fishing Montreal River with us, you will find year-round bass fishing for a fun angling excursion for every season!

Let’s go Fishing!

Elk Lake Wilderness is located right on the river, so fishing Montreal River is only a hop and a skip from your cottages’ door. We offer great packages including our American Plan and Modified American Plan package. These packages consist of a week-long stay in one of our comfortable cottages overlooking the Montreal River. Our guests receive three home-made meals each day, catered to all, so even the pickiest of kids will find something they love! Also included in both packages is a guided back lake fishing or hiking adventure. Although lakes are strictly regulated, they are well worth checking out! With only a short drive from your cottage, a trip to one of the remote lakes will not leave you empty-handed. You will find that walleye, northern pike and a variety of trout will hit your line like nowhere else. The whole family can tag along for this trip as well because the scenery is remarkable and taking a scenic hike is also an option!

Where’s my catch?

The river offers varying depths with thick weed beds, in-flowing creeks, and out-flowing rapids. Overall, fishing Montreal River promises plenty of exciting catches just waiting to bite. After reaching your daily limit, which is not an uncommon occurrence, Elk Lake Wilderness Resort offers a fish cleaning hut. This allows you to prepare your fish and eat it right away to enjoy your bounty. We can also store it for you to take home, or we can even smoke for you!

The fish are biting, and our cottages are waiting for you and your family to experience what fishing Montreal River is all about while staying in one of our beautiful cottages! This summer fishing trip to Elk Lake Wilderness Resort will leave you with incredible memories for years to come!
