Fly Fishing at Timberwolf Lodge
by Planet D (Deb & Dave)
We were greeted by the energetic and welcoming owners, Cindy and Gary Wallace. Their daughter Melissa was up for the summer as well getting ready to take over the family business one day. They took our gear to our cozy rooms that seemed way too nice for a fishing lodge. We were expecting something very rustic, but to our pleasant surprise, it was quite stylish.
Melissa told us that when they bought the lodge eight years ago, the boats were all black from years of neglect. They sanded each and every boat down by hand and now they glisten under the sun while sitting on the water. You can spy a Timberwolf boat from miles away. When flipping through the welcome book at the lodge, we saw that people were catching up to 200 and 300 fish during their 5-day trips — we only caught a couple. (Don’t worry, people weren’t eating 200 fish, there is a daily limit that they strictly adhere to, nobody wants to deplete the fishing stock on this lake)
Timberwolf Lodge offers a fully catered experience. When you get up in the morning, there’s a hearty breakfast waiting for you, and they send out a packed lunch in cooler bags for your day on the water. Once you come back in for a quick dinner break, there’s home cooked food just waiting to be devoured. If you happen to catch anything that day, they’ll put it on the menu tomorrow night if you desire.
If you happen to not feel like fishing one day, you can relax at the lodge as well. There are magazines to read, horseshoes to play and an incredible view to be had on the front porch overlooking the lake. This is a place that is meant for relaxing. I could spend days here enjoying the silence of nature free of distractions like Internet and cell phones. When you come to Timberwolf Lodge, you will be forced to unplug and let the stresses of life melt off your shoulders as you take in the splendour of Mother Nature. Doesn’t that sound heavenly?
