Brown Bear Lake Outpost

Brown Bear Lake Outpost

Trophy Fishing with Portages Galore

  • Only cabin on the lake
  • Well-suited for large groups
  • Three portage lakes to explore
  • Fish for smallmouth bass, northern pike, lake trout, and walleye

Brown Bear Lake outpost is considered one of the best smallmouth bass fishing lakes in the northwest region. The bass average 2 to 3 pounds, and large four pound fish are common. Every year there are trophy wall-hangers (5 to 6 lbs.) caught and released. Now, you would think that would be enough to keep you busy, but there is more! Portages – three of them!

Midway Lake Portage

First, Midway Lake is a quick 4-minute walk from Canada_pike_fishing-canada_OutfittersBrown Bear where three boats and motors are waiting for you. You carry only your fishing rod, and lunch for the day. By boat, you can go from Midway Lake West to Midway Lake East through a scenic waterway about 5 miles long for some more great fishing action.

Both of the Midway lakes have loads of smallmouth bass and fast-action pike fishing to keep you busy. Moose sightings are also common.

Beauty Lake Portage

Next, Beauty Lake is the second portage from Midway Lake, and is only about a four minute walk. Beauty Lake is our fighting Lake Trout fishing destination.  Additionally, Beauty has some of the best Smallmouth Bass fishing and northern pike fishing that you’ll ever find.

Robin Lake Portage

Lastly, there is one more portage lake for the devoted Walleye angler. Catch the trail at the northwest end of Beauty Lake. It’s a bit of hike, taking about 15 minutes to cross an old logging cut. But, it’s worth it, as this secluded little lake is full of feisty walleye and northern pike. Since there is a boat, motor and fuel there for you, just bring your fishing gear and your lunch.

The Cabin

You’ll enjoy this Brown_Bear_Lake_Outpost-Canada_Outfittersroomy 3-bedroom cabin. Since it has over 1000 sq. feet of living space it comfortably accommodates large groups with a minimum of six guests for the month of June.  Located high on a point, the cabin sports a panoramic view over a quiet bay in the heart of Brown Bear Lake. You’ll appreciate all the conveniences of home with a well-equipped kitchen, hot and cold running water, hot showers, and a large screened-in porch overlooking the lake.

All boats are 16-foot Lunds with raised swivel seats and newer Yamaha motors. This is an excellent outpost for large groups with lots of lake to cover and excellent angling throughout the season.
