Save Your Gas and Leave the Driving to Us!

Tired of the drive to Canada? Hop aboard one of these charters in the US Midwest and head to Canada Fishing.

If you love to come to Canada fishing but hate the drive, consider taking a bus trip! There are two lodges that offer bus packages that pick you up at a few points in the US Midwest and take you to your fishing lodge. 

This works especially well for smaller parties that don't want to drive alone or for first timers that don't want to worry about a thing. Or really, for anyone that wants to leave the driving to someone else!
