All units are situated near the lakefront offering you an excellent view. They vary in size to accommodate from 2 to 12 people comfortably and are fully equipped with modern 3 piece bath, plenty of hot and cold water and full-size fridge and stove. The only things we ask you to bring are you bath and dish towels. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of all our cottages and equipment.
Enjoy the beauty and sporting life of Northwestern Ontario where the air is clean and the day rolls slowly by. Camera enthusiasts will find countless opportunities for excellent shots of scenery, wildlife and spectacular sunsets.
Manotak is a small, quiet lodge. We have just eight cottages which are situated among the cedar, pine and poplar trees and spacious, manicured lawns. All cottages are a short walking distance from the water, and from the foot of the beautiful waterfalls. We have a large roofed deck at the waters's edge where you can view the falls, read a good book, or just relax and watch the native waterfowl and other activities as fellow guests arrive and depart from the docks. The deck area also has gas grills and tables for your use should you choose to prepare a meal out of your cottage. We have a small store in the lodge where you can pick up tackle, clothing, bait, etc. We also have a small library of books that you can enjoy on those rainy days - and if that critical ball game is being played while you are at lodge.
We have attempted, as best we can, to detail the lake and the fishing you can expect while you are here. Every outfitter likes to think that they have the best! The truth is that nearly all of the lakes in the region have good to excellent fishing. The Ministry of Natural Resources, along with the cooperation of outfitters and the visiting fishermen, have done an outstanding job of preserving the fisheries for the present fishermen as well as for generations to come. Perrault is a lake that should satisfy almost any fisherperson be they pro or novice. We have a variety and abundance of fish. Like most of the lakes in the area, Perrault has excellent Walleye and Northern populations, but unlike many other lakes, it also has great Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout and outstanding Jumbo perch. (By the way, there is still no limit on the number of perch you can catch and take home). The bottom line is this - we have a lot of fish - how large are they? Like any other lake, they come in all sizes.
Perrault Lake is located in the center of a chain of five lakes starting with Cedar at the south, then Perrault which flows under highway 105 into Wabaskang. A short portage from north end of Perrault puts you in Wine Lake (an excellent Walleye and Trout lake). From Wine Lake you can access Anishinabi Lake (a Trout only lake). All of the prominent species of fresh water fish are present in Wabaskang (Muskies are not plentiful so we use Perrault and/or Cedar when we want to chase Muskies). The English River system is also accessible from Wabaskang by way of the "Seven Foot Falls". All told there is in excess of fifty thousand acres of water to fish, enjoy, and explore! But from a practical point of view let's concentrate on your week and what you can realistically expect in terms of boat time and landing fish!
Perrault Lake is almost like four lakes separated by narrow channels. All of this is navigable by just about any type of boat you might use. However, if it's a "fishy day" (the weather and other conditions are just right) your rarely have to travel more than fifteen or twenty minutes from camp to experience excellent fishing. Daily fly out fishing trips are also available.
Manotak Lodge is just 165 miles (3 1/2 hours) north of International Falls, Minnesota in Ontario, Canada. After crossing the Canada/U.S. border, drive north to the Trans Canada Highway 17 then east or west (depending on your point of entry) to Vermilion Bay. From there, travel north on Highway 105 (Red Lake Road) for 38 miles to Perrault Falls, then just one quarter mile off the highway.
