A Traditional Northern Ontario Lodge Experience

Whether you choose to drive or fly to Thunder Bay, the lodge is easily accessible. If you opt for a flight, you’ll be picked up and transported directly to the lodge.

World-Class Brook Trout

Quebec Lodge boasts a privileged position, nestled in the midst of the world’s best trophy brook trout fishery. The renowned Nipigon River, only minutes away from the lodge, is home to the 14.8-pound world record brook trout caught back in 1915. With its access to the Nipigon River, Lake Nipigon, and Nipigon Bay of Lake Superior, Quebec Lodge offers anglers the opportunity to catch brook trout averaging 20 inches, with some reaching an impressive 25 inches. The experienced guides at the lodge will ensure you are taken to the best fishing spots while navigating the vast Nipigon River system.

Multi-Species Options

The lower section of the Nipigon River not only offers trophy brook trout but also resident rainbows, pike, lake trout, and chinook salmon. The unpredictable nature of this fishery means you never know what you might catch. If you’re looking for even more variety, Lake Nipigon presents another option. This expansive lake is home to giant pike, lake trout, and whitefish. Pike can be found lurking in the shallows and weed beds, while lake trout can be caught both in the shallow waters and deeper parts of the lake. Lake Nipigon offers endless opportunities for anglers to explore its abundant waters.

The Lodge Experience

Quebec Lodge, a historic log lodge built in the 1930s, offers a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. With a variety of room sizes to choose from and a central gathering area, guests can relax, enjoy a drink, play cards, or engage in friendly conversation.
