Our First Season at Milton Lake Lodge! Fantastic!

Following and during our first summer at Milton Lake Lodge and Outposts many upgrades and exciting news have occurred.  First off, it was a very busy summer with our fishing groups, renovations, upgrades and new technology.  

Many trophy fish were caught in 2018 and in particular northern pike with the largest northern pike measuring in at a healthy 47”. Congratulations to all guests in 2018 who caught trophy northern pike and lake trout at Milton Lake Lodge and Outposts! In this regard we acquired acustomized leather bound book for recording all trophy fish caught in 2018 and in the future. Come visit us in 2019 and insert your name in this beautiful trophy fish record book!

As to renovations to the main lodge, new floors were installed in all guest rooms and kitchen, and the kitchen was remodeled and certain equipment replaced.  New outboard motors were purchased for Outposts and state of the art technology was added to all our boats including technology for better communication and safety.  Additionally, we upgraded fishing equipment, WIFI and satellite TV at 

the main lodge.  Finally, we purchased new mattresses, and added a new bathroom and a floating dock for unloading floatplanes at Misekumaw Outpost.

 

This fall we purchased an Air Rider Ranger 45 Hovercraft for Milton Lake Lodge, which will expand our fishing area at and around Milton Lake substantially.  The hovercraft will allow us to fish the Porcupine River system, Walker Lake without a floatplane, and further areas inaccessible by a standard fishing boat. This acquisition opens up expansive new waters for arctic grayling, northern pike and lake trout.  

At Misekumaw we will be clearing trails on certain areas of the lake for portage to significantly expand the fishing area previously inaccessible by conventional boat.  We are extremely confident we will find numerous trophy northern pike to compliment the fantastic trophy pike fishing that already exists at Misekumaw.

Overall the fishing was fantastic in 2018 and will continue to improve with our good conservation measures such as catch and release, utilizing only barbless hooks, and the proper release of fish. Additionally, we are dedicated to limiting the number of fisherman every year on our lakes so that our fishery becomes stronger year after year. 

  

When our guests at Milton Lake Lodge finish a nice culinary cuisine from our world-class chef in the evenings some like to go back out in the evening with our guides for some fast action lake trout fishing.  We all especially love the constant dinging on the depth finder as everyone catches and releases lake trout one after another until everyone just gets tired and ready for a cocktail!   The future is very bright!

This summer The New Fly Fisher, a very acclaimed fishing show, visited Milton Lake Lodge for some world-class fishing.  The TV show will air in January 2019. Check out this video by clicking here.  It is a preamble to the upcoming TV show.

We are also excited to announce Canada Fishing Guide (Mike Borger) has officially recognized Milton Lake and the Outpost camps as an Endorsed Outfitter on Mike’s website.  Click here to see the endorsement!  We are extremely excited as Mike’s endorsement represents a major accomplishment for us.

We are revising our website and will be much more active in 2019 on social media.  Check us out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/miltonlakelodge/ or on our website at www.miltonlakelodge.com.

I have already begun taking reservations for 2019 and wanted to let you know so that you can secure a date that is preferable in your busy schedule.  Please call (713-416-5983) or email me to book your trip or to answer any questions you may have.  

Be among the first anglers to fish the new virgin waters at Milton Lake and Outposts following the acquisition of the hovercraft and portage trails being cleared!

All the best,

David DeCort

"I had the pleasure of spending eight incredible days at Milton Lake Lodge's outpost camp on Misekumaw Lake in 2017. All I can say is, wow! I have traveled all over the north in search of trophy pike, and without hesitation, I will tell you that Misekumaw Lake in far northern Saskatchewan was one of my best experiences for trophy pike fishing to date."

Milton Lake Lodge Expands Fishing Area

Milton Lake Lodge, located in Upper Saskatchewan, is pleased to announce the purchase of an Air Rider Ranger 45 Hovercraft. The hovercraft will be transported to Milton Lake in early June 2019 for use throughout the entire 2019 summer fishing season. The Air Rider will provide the opportunity to expand the fishing area at and around Milton Lake.

Currently the Porcupine River, which extends to Walker Lake Outpost and also all the way to Black Lake, can now be fished within the confines of its Outfitters License that previously was inaccessible due to rapids within the Porcupine River system.  Much of this river system has never been fished and will especially be fantastic for expanding fishing for arctic grayling, northern pike and lake trout.  In particular our guides and their guests have been limited to a very small area of water for targeting arctic grayling. However, with the hovercraft we will now be able to expand that area for arctic grayling extensively by several miles at both the river inflow and outflow.

As to Walker Lake, previously the only way to safely access this outpost was by floatplane as using a conventional boat from Milton Lake to Walker Lake was not a viable option.  With the hovercraft’s ability to safely navigate the small rapids on the Porcupine River, access is now open between Milton and Walker Lake!

David DeCort, Owner and C.E.O. of Milton Lake Lodge, said, “Following the purchase of Milton Lake Lodge and Outposts one of my goals was to expand our fishing area.  With this hovercraft acquisition, I am excited to fulfill this promise and look forward to working with our guides and guests as we explore vast new fishing areas targeting northern pike, lake trout and arctic grayling.”
