Get away from it all and enjoy a Canadian Wilderness Experience at Fireside Lodge. Three and a half hours from the Minnesota border, Fireside Lodge is road accessible, and is the only resort located on Little Vermilion Lake.
Little Vermilion in Ontario, Canada is the largest in an eleven-lake system. Approximately sixteen miles long, Little Vermillion is a long narrow body of water with a lower and upper section. These spring-fed waters are deep and cold with numerous bays, reefs, and deep weed beds that have created excellent fish-holding structures. The lake forage consists of whitefish, cisco, suckers, perch, various minnow life, and crayfish. With the combination of all these factors, the unpressured-waters of Little Vermilion offers our guests some of the best sportfishing Canada has to offer; year after year.
We at Fireside Lodge follow a catch-and-release program to protect the resource and the sport. Therefore, along with ten additional lakes accessed by creeks or portages, this multi-lake system offers exceptional sportfishing. Just imagine having eight lakes to pursue Northern Pike, six for Smallmouth Bass, six for Muskie. Three of these lakes had been closed for fishing since the 1930’s but are now opened for anglers.

My wife and I travel a lot for hunting and fishing trips all over the world and we can honestly say Fireside is one of the best lodges we have ever stayed. Owners attention to detail and staying on the top of the things shows everywhere from dining room to the boats and to the cabins. This being our first time we went trough a learning process but still caught a lot of fish and enjoyed the lake and the scenery.They have a lot of repeat customers and we'll be back, too. Highly recommended!
