We are happy to introduce to you Dark Water Lake. Situated on beautiful high sand point amongst a tall pine forest, this new 8 man cabin constructed in 2012, has a breathtaking view of the lake to the east and the west. Located 55 miles southeast of our base in Red Lake, this easy fishing lake is sure to impress you and your party. Dark Water, hence the name, has tea colored water. This type of water does not allow the sun to penetrate easily which for the fisherman translates into an all day bite! As with any trophy lake, deep water is key to producing large fish. Dark Water has up to 45 feet of water which allows the fish to transit from deep water to the shallower structure each day to feed. 9 miles of winding shoreline, always a place to fish no matter what the weather, it is made up of many weedy bays and deep narrows and plenty of under water structure, so be sure to bring your depth finder on this adventure. A comfortable 8 person log cabin featuring 2 spacious bedrooms and 6 of the 8 beds being bottom bunks, a perfect setting with a deck overlooking the lake. A breath taking view of your own private, pristine oasis.
The water on this lake enters from two different rivers and flows through 2 sets of narrows as it makes its way north. If you are after big pike, Dark Water has a long shallow bay off the main lake which is sure to hold many monster pike in the early spring. As summer moves on, the pike will move out to the main lake, mixing with and feeding on walleye off the rocky points near the weedy bays. Walleye in this Northwestern Ontario gem are very healthy, no skinny fish here. Walleye between 18-23” are quite common but fight like they are much larger, the length to weight converter will not work at Dark Water. Walleye on this lake are very easy to catch. If you like non-stop action, this is the place for you! Here you could easily catch 100 fish in a day if you wanted to, but if you are after those Trophy sized walleye you will need to head for the deeper water and sacrifice some quantity for the trophies. Such a simple lake is perfect for everyone. A family trip with the kids, for the less experienced outdoorsman or the experienced group who are always looking to fish a new lake!
