Preparing for your fishing vacation

Preparing for your fishing vacation

If you've never considered a fly-in fishing trip before, you're already in for some surprises that you don't seldom see in very many vacation locations. No doubt you've already traveled the world and seen many of the greatest tourist attractions, despite fighting endless crowds. But how many unexpected pleasant surprises did you have in those places, especially when it comes to appreciating nature?

Most likely, you've had too many unpleasant surprises during vacations, leading to the frequent problem of wanting vacation from the vacation. If you've had too much of that and want a place out of the ordinary where you can truly find the unexpected, our Oak Lake Lodge is there for you.

Located in Ontario, Canada, we're in one of the most pristine vacation places left on earth. With few visitors allowed at a time, the natural environments here bring many different experiences for people. However, in order to enjoy them to the fullest, you should always prepare for specific occurrences.

We always recommend preparing well before experiencing our vacations. This includes bringing items that make your trip more enjoyable and help you experience the sometimes unexpected elements nature brings.

Things to Wear

You'll be awed at the nature surrounding you here thanks to being miles away from any industry or tourist retreats. Nevertheless, if you've ever vacationed in isolated places of nature, you know the weather is sometimes unpredictable. We consider this a plus, because it gives you a chance to experience some weather variety on your vacation.

Depending on the time of year you visit us, you could experience an entire vacation of sun, rain, or a combination. As we head into summer now, things will be a lot sunnier, though rain can sometimes hit unexpectedly.

This won't affect the fun you're having as you fish out on Oak Lake in our comfortable boats. As long as you bring a hooded sweatshirt or a warm jacket while out in your boat, you'll be prepared and will enjoy your fishing vacation.

Bringing Items for Your Boat

When you're out in a boat fishing, the unexpected is always possible, including the size of the fish. Many common fish species in Oak Lake are huge, so you need proper fishing gear to land these. We recommend you bring your own fishing gear, though we do sell basic fishing supplies in our store.

Bring your own fishing vest as well so you protect your clothes from getting wet or from stains.

Don't forget the small stuff like sun protection, especially during the summer. Despite being in Canada, we still get plenty of summer sun that causes sunburns. Bring a sunhat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself while on the water.

Plus, bring your own snacks (or purchase snack items in the Tuck Shop) so you can take care of the very unsurprising concept of feeling hungry while out fishing.

Bringing a Camera

Catching the unexpected on a digital camera is essential when you're on a unique vacation. You'll have experiences here at Oak Lake Lodge you'll never forget, and you need to capture every moment on your camera. No matter if you prefer a digital camera or film, be sure to keep it safe in a bag so it doesn't get lost.

Whether it be fishing experiences, hunting, or experiencing our beautiful cottages and lodge, you'll have photo moments every minute. With the pristine beauty of untainted nature around you, you'll have many pleasant, unexpected moments that you'll want to remember forever.
