Active Adventure

Slippery Winds Wilderness Resort, a jewel hidden in northwestern Ontario, less than 40 miles from the U.S. - Canada border.

A short float-plane trip from Fort Frances, Ontario, takes you to the lodge located on a peninsula between Yoke Lake and Straw Lake. This American-Plan lodge offers its guests the opportunity to angle for six species of sportfish, including smallmouth and largemouth bass, lake trout, muskie, northern pike and walleye on six separate lakes that are accessible via boat or short portage.

We have made many improvements and upgrades to the main lodge, guest cabins, docks, boats & motors and equipment. We are commited to continue upgrading the facilities to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests.

Slippery Winds has practised catch & release for the past ten years and the benefits can be readily observed on the smiling faces of our guests as they recount their day's fishing experiences back at the lodge.

At Slippery Winds we want you to relax and enjoy the tranquility and scenic beauty of our area. With this in mind we have limited our capacity to only 18 guests per trip.

With no set changeover days guests can customize their fishing trip to suit their schedule.

Your day starts with a hearty , full, hot breakfast served at 7:00 AM in the main lodge dining room. You have the choice to take shore lunch fixings to prepare a fresh fish luncheon right on the lake or to take a bag lunch of sandwiches in order to maximize your fishing time.
