For a fantastic walleye fishing trip, stay at

Salvesen Lake Outpost

Salvesen Lake is a beautiful 7 mile long lake that lends itself to the fancy of every fisherman. Salvesen is located on the Sturgeon River system, which in turns connects to the famous English River. This connecting river system provides excellent spawning grounds for walleye, smallmouth bass and northern pike as well as a healthy baitfish population. Two of the largest trophy northern pike were caught at Salvesen!

The Cabin

In a word: luxury. The living room has comfy furniture and a propane fireplace. The kitchen is the envy of any gourmet cook with individual thermostats for heat. The indoor shower and flushing toilet are an especially nice treat. The solar system powers the lights and electric fridge. If the day is hot, you can enjoy relaxing or sleeping in the screened-in porch. From your lounging spot on the front deck you have a beautiful view of the lake and can keep an eye on anyone catching fish off the dock!

A remarkable family business success story… Halley’s accommodations are second to none, very modern, and well-maintained, and employees that are always helpful. The fishing is excellent. My sons, daughters and grandchildren all treasure the Halley’s experience and can’t wait to go back.
