Lac Seul is a top fishing vacation destination for anglers looking for great northern pike and walleye fishing on its 106,000 acres. Making Timberlane Lodge a great Ontario fishing lodge to visit on your next vacation. There are hundreds of miles of shoreline in our northwest section of Lac Seul and the fishing is concentrated on the large population and size of the walleye, but occasionally, just when you least expect it, you'll have a bragging sized Northern Pike to deal with. The English River has a constant flow right in front of our dock at the fishing lodge and the river levels are nearly normal, which means plenty of walleye fishing can be done close to camp.

Lac Seul is the second largest body of water entirely within the province of Ontario. It is a relatively shallow lake with many rock shoals. This provides a good habitat for Walleye and Northern pike as well as Bass, Perch, and in some areas of the lake Muskie are caught. Lac Seul is noted for offering some of the best fishing in Ontario, so be sure to add our Ontario fishing lodge to your list of fishing destinations.

Walleye & Northern Pike


Walleye are most active during spring and fall, and best to fish for them at night, on overcast, or windy days since the walleye's eyes are specialized to help the fish feed in low-light conditions. Average Ontario walleye range from 1.5 to 3 lbs, but it isn’t uncommon to catch one over 10 lbs.

Walleye can often be found in deeper water over rocks and in weeds, and often swim in schools. So once you find one it's a good idea to throw out a marker so you can keep casting in that same spot. This will help ensure you catch enough to enjoy a nice shore lunch once back on land!

Northern Pike

Northern Pike are native to Ontario and average 2 to 9.5 lbs, with the provincial record of 42.1 lbs! While they do tend to bite all day, mornings and evenings are best fishing times to catch these guys.

Northern Pike tend to hang out in deep water in the summer to avoid the heat, and in spring and fall can often be found hiding in vegetation where they can ambush their prey. They are aggressive feeders with sharp teeth so be sure to use strong line and a medium-action rod and reel.
