Fishing at Five Lakes Lodge 9Our five home lakes provide excellent fishing for walleye, northern pike, sauger, perch, whitefish and lake trout. The walleye fishing on the Gullrock chain of lakes is of the highest quality. Because of this, we encourage the increasingly popular practice of “catch and release” of the prime size spawning fish to preserve the abundant fish stocks. There is an accessible muskie lake about 15 miles from our camp. Several smaller northern and walleye portage lakes offer our guests unique wilderness day trips.

Black bear, moose, ducks, loons and other wildlife are seen throughout the lake system adding to your fishing experience.
