Experience the best smallmouth bass fishing in Ontario at

Rex Lake Outpost

Rex Lake lies in a basin of sedimentary rock, which makes it an ideal habitat for crayfish. Where crayfish are abundant, so are smallmouth bass, and Rex Lake has some of the largest, healthiest smallmouth bass in Canada. “If you’ve ever wanted to add a trophy bass to your list,” says Gene Halley, “this is the place to do it.”

The Cabin

The three-bedroom cabin on Rex Lake is built of logs harvested from the area. Built in 1999, this cabin is modeled after our other outposts, with front walls filled with windows offering the incredible views that all our camps are known for.
