Our Fishing Lodge

Nestled in the heart of Sunset Country in Northwestern Ontario Canada, Branch's Seine River Lodge is a modern, full service, drive-in fishing lodge. We're only 70 miles east of the Fort Frances, Ontario / International Falls, Minnesota border!

We are located on Banning Lake, the centre of the Seine River Chain of Lakes. Right from the lodge you have water-access to 5 lakes / 30 miles of terrific fishing without ever having to leave your boat. The system boasts an array of different water to suit your angling desires - smaller lakes and larger lakes, dozens of islands, bays, river channels with current, tons of structure and varying depths

The Seine Chain is known for a strong annual walleye spawn, and offers a very high population of "good eaters" with a number of trophy walleye caught each year. The stained water keeps the action going all day long.

We also are home to some of the best smallmouth bass fishing Ontario - and Canada - has to offer. Our world class smallmouth have gained a reputation with high numbers and loads of large trophy "football" smallies, and attract professional and recreational smallmouth anglers from all over North America. The Seine Chain and the Atikokan area as a whole is definitely a go to fishing location for trophy smallmouth bass fishing!

Our countless weedy bays, rocky structure and prolific forage-base produce excellent northern pike fishing. Lots of numbers and action and a chance at that monster pike awaits you!

And if panfish are what you're after, we've recently started seeing some really nice crappie coming in and you may find yourself getting into a bit of yellow perch action (if you can get to them before the walleye & pike do!).

Cabins and Camp:

We're a small, family owned and operated lodge and have had the camp in our family since 1967. Our location in the centre of the Seine Chain and central to dozens of off system lakes makes for an ideal base. Our years of experience on these waters and helps ensure that your trip is great.

We've been around for a long time, but you'd never know it from our facilities. Our cabins are all new or newly renovated and offer all the amenities of home including satellite TV, wifi, air conditioning and decks or verandahs overlooking Banning Lake. They're the perfect, clean and comfortable base for your Canadian fishing adventure!
