Unexpected Lake Outpost

English River Outpost – Only cabin on the lake
Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Muskellunge




Our outpost on Unexpected Lake is located on the English River system in the Oak Lake West Provincial Park. This fishing outpost truly has it all! The English River system is world renowned for its amazing walleye, northern pike, muskellunge and smallmouth bass fishing. This lake is a walleye angler’s dream!  Walleyes are abundant with trophy-sized fish caught and released to be enjoyed by future anglers. Muskies are caught and released each season in the 40-50″ range. Smallmouth bass are plentiful and what can we say about the big northern pike, except “monsters”. 

Unexpected Lake is a flowage system with two rivers entering the lake from the north and northwest, flowing past the cabin into Wilcox Lake and into the English River, where it then flows south over two falls and dumps into Oak Lake. Unexpected is a dark colored water with current breaks and rock hump structure teeming with walleyes for fast action, even into the hot summer months.

Our rustic outpost cabin will accommodate groups up to eight people. The cabin has a large screened in porch, screened-in fish cleaning house, two bedrooms, and kitchen/dining room. The cabin has a tongue and groove pine interior, comfortable twin beds in the bedrooms, hot and cold running water with a shower, electric fridge and upright chest freezer, propane stove, electric lights, all run by a 24-hour generator service . We also have propane lighting for the guests that want to enjoy the quiet evening sunsets.
