Lake Trout Fishing near Gowganda Ontario

Auld Reekie Lodge is located 3 hours north of North Bay near the town of Gowganda and located on Gowganda Lake. Gowganda Lake is a spring-fed rocky Canadian Shield lake that has deep stops going down to 150 feet deep. The lake produces some really nice Lake Trout and their guests enjoy catching them up to 10 pounds in the spring when fishing for other species. Auld Reekie Lodge never promoted the Lake Trout fishing so virtually nobody has fished the lake in the summer. The lake is big enough to produce 40 pounders and the population is high due to next to zero trout fishing. Auld Reekie does have a few backcountry lakes that are stuffed with Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout and even a lake with Aurora Trout. These lakes are canoe-only spring-fed lakes and well worth the walk in. They have beautiful lakefront cottages along with a main restaurant and British Pub style bar. They offer American Plan, European Plan and housekeeping plan.
