lake trout

A leisurely trophy fishing experience

For anglers who enjoy trolling or jigging, or for the pike and bass fishermen who enjoy a change-up in fishing techniques, lake trout fishing at Pine Cliff offers a leisurely trophy-fishing experience.

The average lake trout caught on Big Sandy Lake weighs nine to 10 pounds and measures 28-29 inches or greater. In Ontario, a “master angler” lake trout is 30 inches, so it’s common for even first-time lake trout fishermen to see their names on our annual trophy fish lists.


Come unplug and recharge on our remote, secluded lake.

Spend the days fishing to your heart’s content,

with peaceful evenings in the serene Canadian wilderness.

And land that Lake Trout of a lifetime.

This was our first time to Pine Cliff Lodge and by far our favorite compared to the other resorts we've tried in Ontario. The fishing was great, which included many Northerns, Smallmouth in the 17 to 19-inch range, Perch, and 3 Lake Trout in the 29 to 32-inch range - all released except the Perch to help preserve this gem. The center console boats are amazing compared to the typical boats you find at Ontario fishing lodges. With no other commercial lodges on the lake and given the lake's size, most times it felt like we had the lake to ourselves. Overall, a wonderful experience.” – Tom Noordhoek
