Lac Seul's Evergreen Lodge

Enjoy spending the day's fishing on Lac Seul and evenings at the lodge at Lac Seul's Evergreen Lodge. Boats are available to take you out onto the water to fish for muskellunge, walleye or pike. Guides will take you, or you can opt to take the boats out on your own for a private and peaceful day fishing.

Lac Seul Outpost

Try your luck with the guides at Lac Seul Outpost. Outpost guides suggest using live minnows on a jig as the scent arouses the walleye and the motion brings them in to strike. The guides will assist with cleaning and filleting your catch should you land that trophy fish.

After your days spent fishing, head to the lodge and enjoy home-cooked meals, private showers, comfortable bedding and a fireplace where you and your fellow anglers can swap stories about the one that got away.
