The fishing at Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge is superb. McIntosh Lake is part of the legendary Churchill River system—a vast series of finger lakes and tributaries in Canada’s pristine North that will provide you with a great deal of diversity in your angling opportunities. Whether it’s the fast-paced action of trophy walleye fishing or the adrenalin rush of going head to head with a massive trophy pike, the waters around Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge have it all.
Catch and Release
The concept of catch and release fishing has a long history at Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge and has been promoted for many years. Because we are releasing our trophy fish back into the Churchill River system, breeding stock is at an all-time high, and each year our guests are consistently catching larger fish. Many return year after year for another exhilarating experience at trophy walleye and pike fishing.
All of our trips are fully guided. We provide one guide for every two anglers.
