On the shores of Kississing Lake, nestled in the woods of the boreal forest on the Canadian Shield, Kenanow Lodge sits 77 kilometres down a gravel road off of Name of main road or highway?. We’re remote but still accessible by vehicle, so you can drive in. (Just keep your eyes out for moose!) Or fly to Flin Flon and let us pick you up for the hour and a half drive back.
Sherridon was established as a community to support the local nickel mine; when it closed decades ago many families moved away. Today, our village has a population of about 105, some of whom work with us here as support staff or fishing guides. We may be small, but we have plenty of heart and culture.
It would take more than a thousand words to capture the magic of “catching the big one,” but these pictures do a pretty good job!
The Fish of Kississing Lake
Our lake is fortunate to be home to many fish species. Whether you are ice-fishing in January or out on the hottest day in July, there’s always something to catch, and each angling experience is unique. Check out this summary of our resident species.
Locally nicknamed jack, they typically run 4 to 7 pounds, but are found up to 20 or more pounds. A "trophy" northern pike is 41" or longer. Found in great abundance on Kississing Lake, northern pike strike aggressively. Casting into shallows or in weed beds is the most typical way to go after them, but it's not unusual to get good strikes when casting or jigging for walleye. Highly territorial, pound for pound, they're great fighters. Within a few days (or if you're lucky, a few hours) on the lake, you should get a fairly good education on dealing with them. All northern pike 30" and over must be released.
