Our Story

We love it here, you will too!

Our Story

We found a gem in Harry Lake back in 2015. Our dream was to turn it into a fly-in fishing lodge we could share with others who would love an appreciate it as much as ourselves. With the completion of the modern three bedroom guesthouse we built new in 2016, we are thrilled we can now do so.

Harry Lake Lodge was initially built as a corporate retreat and never operated as a commercial fishing lodge. As a result, it offers modern luxuries not found anywhere else and supports a very healthy fishery. We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to share this special place with our clients.

Meet Al and Mary

Al Hedstrom

Al hails from Northern Minnesota and spends his winters as a charter captain running his business, Snook One Charters, in Fort Myers Florida. In the summer you can find him busy fishing and guiding either in Northern Ontario or Minnesota. Al has his International Captain’s license and has been in the fishing business for 30 plus years. He has owned and operated Snook One Charters for fourteen years. Al is also quite the chef and can make a shore lunch like no other. Nothing beats the mouth-watering sizzle of freshly-caught pan-fried fish cooked to perfection by Captain Al.

I've been on many Canadian fly-in trips and this was the best - bar none. I couldn't believe the fishing and the accommodations were outstanding. It's outpost fishing done right!
