Birch Lake Resort

Catching smallmouth bass on a fly rod is truly an angler's delight.

Nestled in Algoma Country, only an hour or so from Sault Ste. Marie, Birch Lake Resort is surrounded by numerous lakes that have exceptional smallmouth bass fishing.

To find bass that average 3 to 4 pounds and that will willingly come to fly -- that is indeed a special place. In this area, you can use topwater poppers, streamers, and crayfish patterns to hook the bass.

Brown woolly buggers are also a great choice when fishing for bass.

Using 6- or 7-weight rods, this is great fishing at a great price! Best of all, the surrounding lakes have public access.
