Big Canon Lake Lodge is the Lodge for all your fishing needs.

Our fishing system is unique and promising. When you fly in you will notice we are the only lodge on the lake meaning we are producing great numbers of fish without competition and crowds. The Lodge sits on a clear lake system producing primarily Lake Trout and Smallmouth Bass but we also have Muskie, Pike and Walleye. We have portage lakes for those who like a change of pace or adventure. We also have a dark stained river system to fish as well. It produces Walleye, Pike, Muskie, Small Mouth Bass and Perch. We provide transportation on the less than mile trip to the river system.
My father Steve Guse and friend Bill Fredericks bought Big Canon in 1987 after retiring, my father retired from The Air Force and Bill retiring from The Navy. My brother and I worked here while we were in high school and college learning along side our father on how the fish camp business runs. Of course through the years we have to make modifications and adjustments due to technology and changing times but it laid a great ground for us.

After college I decided to go into the camp business myself, purchasing my own camp. I bought my own camp in 1992 and our family still owns it as well. After the passing of my father and Bill retiring from the camp business in 2008 I returned to Big Canon with my wife.
What started as a retirement hobby for my father and Bill has now turned into something more. This is not just my job and lively hood, this is about making people happy and making it the best fishing experience they’ve every had. We strive to give our customers more than what they expect from “a camp in the bush.”

Please contact us if you have anymore questions about our camp or services.
