Guide Services

Duck Bay Lodge is the best place to enjoy Lake of the Woods guided fishing led by our experts. We know finding the fish is just as important as reeling them in, and we’re proud of our ability to do both. Even expert anglers can have trouble in unfamiliar waters, but our Lake of the Woods fishing charters are led by guides who grew up in the area. That makes all the difference when it comes to a successful trip.

Our professional guides teach you how to fish for the species available in our area. Our Lake of the Woods guide service is the best way to have a great experience because there are so many species here, each with something different to offer. Whether you want to catch muskiewalleyenorthern pikesmallmouth basscrappie or lake trout, we have some of the most experienced fishing guides in Canada to help you.

What sets our people apart from other fishing guides in Ontario is that they’ve spent so much time out on the lake, they know it like the backs of their hands. Many of them grew up in the area, meaning they have intimate knowledge of the best locations. On top of that, we only use the best fishing equipment to ensure you have all the tools you need. If you trust our Lake of the Woods guide service, you’ll have the best chance of landing elusive fish and enjoy an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life.

You’ll learn the type of structure the fish will be in, which lures work best, and fishing techniques that ensure you’ll catch your limit. At noon, you’ll experience a Canadian shore lunch — your morning’s catch cooked over an open fire on a secluded shoreline.

Our guides are all local and are chosen for their knowledge of the area and fishing expertise. We look to hire not only expert fishing guides, but good people. Our experts always bring a fun and upbeat atmosphere out on the water, to ensure you have the best time with your group. To ensure availability, please book your guide when making your reservation.
