Welcome to Vance's Resort.
As one of the top family-owned fishing lodges in Northern Ontario for over 85 years, our fantastic fishing, comfortable accommodations and hospitality keeps our customers coming back year after year. Even though we have multiple species of sports fish available, our reputation is for the awesome Walleye, Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike Fishing. These are the Dominant species.
We are located on the famous and beautiful Spanish River which cuts through the Northern Ontario Wilderness, creating perfect habitat for large populations of
Smallmouth Bass and
Largemouth Bass. Five minutes by boat and you are at Lake Huron and the North Channel where
Rainbow Trout (Steelhead) and
Lake Trout are caught all Summer with big populations of
Coho Salmon & Chinook (King) Salmon coming in late Summer and early Fall.
Emerald colored water and Canadian Shield rock form hundreds of islands at the mouth of the river. The beauty of the North Channel will capture your heart and get you excited about the fishing potential. Where the river is wide, weedy areas hold large Muskie, Northern Pike and Largemouth Bass while the rocky points and drop-offs hold great numbers of trophy Walleye and Smallmouth Bass.
