Our lodge is located on McLennan Lake, which does not have Smallmouth Bass. That does not mean that you can't experience the best Smallmouth Bass fishing you have ever had. We have lakes in the area that are just stuffed with bass. Guests have reported catching over 100 Smallmouth Bass in an afternoon on these lakes. The Smallmouth Bass are common in the 1 to 3-pound range but guests catch them commonly in the 4 to 5-pound range and every once in a while a 6-pounder gets caught.
We have a few Smallmouth Bass lakes within a 10 to 60 minute drive from the lodge. Many of these lakes are remote and hard to get to with a car because they are on old logging roads, non-maintained roads or 4x4 trails. Ideally if you want to take advantage of the fantastic Smallmouth Bass fishing in the area you should have a pick-up truck, Jeep or SUV with a trailer hitch and 2-inch ball. 4x4 drive is an added bonus in the spring when some of the roads are muddy. Some of the lakes are accessible with a car but you still need a trailer hitch
