Fantastic fishing trip, we loved every minute of it. This was one of the best trips ever. Wow great fishing and fun by all. You drive to snake river then float plane in. The good is delicious. I have a gluten allergy and they were perfect dealing with it. The staff is outstanding. BYW u are cut off from the world. Some WiFi but not a lot. So come here to relax. They have 2 people per boat. Make sure you do a shore lunch one day. Yum. You eat what you catch. Suggestions, bring a knife to cut up the fish and bring some drinks if you want them. I hope you have as much fun as we did. Loved loved loved it. Thanks so much to the staff you made the trip for us

I can't say enough about how friendly and accommodating Tom and Michel and their staff are. Everything about our trip was outstanding..again - the food, boats, cabins, and fishing. The staff takes care of every detail so you can relax and enjoy yourself. I have stayed at other lodges and I know first hand that this is not always the case. I have a food allergy - nuts and they could not have been more accommodating. Their highly trained chefs not only prepare great food but know how to properly take care of guests with special dietary needs. Our fishing was great but the whole experience of seeing bald eagles, loons, ospreys, and other wildlife make for a great outdoors experience. I look forward to my next visit.

We took our teenage boys here for our first fly in fishing experience. Tom and Michelle are first class and define the meaning of superior customer service. Absolutely every step of the process was caring and over the top! And I ask alot of questions! Our boys fell in love with the place and really wanted to return the following year. Unfortunately we couldn’t align our summer schedule with availability at Kaby so we opted for another very reputable lodge on the lake. NOT even close to the same level of hospitality! I will always return to Kaby Lodge in the future (next year). They have ingrained the same high level of service into every employee we came in touch with. The special touches Created the experience that will keep us coming back and recommending to friends. Book it!

This was my first trip to Kaby Lodge, I joined a group of friends some of which have been coming here for over 20 years...and now I know why! The staff was courteous and very helpful. The accommodations are comfortable and the food is very good. I really appreciated how organized everything was, as soon as we stepped off the plane we were greeted, our luggage was transferred to our cabin and we were ushered to the dining room to complete a little bit of paperwork and receive great instructions on how to make the most of our time at Kaby. The week we visited the fishing was a bit off to their standards but compared to other Ontario trips I have taken I think it was the best overall fishing I have had. We consistently caught small and mid size walleye and northerns with a notable 39" northern thrown in. I am already looking forward to my next trip to Kaby Lodge.

The fishing, the boats, the people, the food, all of it Thank was more than we could ask for! You quickly feel like family with Tom and Michal, and their staff goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The boats are excellent fishing boats custom designed by Tom and Michal. I would recommend watching a shore lunch being prepared before attempting to do one, but definitely try it, well worth the effort. Excellent experience, would definitely recommend.

Great fishing, terrific food, clean cabins, friendly and helpful staff. Reasonably priced. This was my second trip to Watson's Kaby Lodge. Tom and MIchelle are great hosts, everyone is friendly, the dock hands are ready to answer any questions on how and where to catch that big fish. Looking forward to going back in 2020!

White Lake, Michigan8 contributions2 helpful votes
This place is truly a spotsman’s paradise. Tom and Michele run a 100% first class operation. Cabins are clean and well maintained, food was outstanding, staff was friendly and helpful, and the fishing was fabulous. The lake and wilderness is pristine. We saw bears, moose, and bald eagles during our three day stay. The lake is full of walleye and pike and provided limit catches for all seven members of our group every day. As an avid outdoorsman for over 35 years, I highly recommend this place. Nice work Tom, Michele and team - see you next spring!!!

Watson's Kaby Lodge provides an excellent fishing experience. The lake is full of walleye and pike that make fishing there almost effortless. Tom and Michelle anticipate your every wish and desire...they obviously take great pride in their operation. Lodging and boats are well maintained to ensure a trouble free vacation. The food is first class. Clovis and Nick bend over backwards to provide great meals and accommodate any culinary requests. Megan and Erin are cheerful and prompt as dining room servers. Bret was always available on the dock and made sure the boat and minnows were ready to go. Adam helps out with a little bit of everything and has great guiding experience. White River Flying service makes sure you get to the lodge and back safely. If you like eating fresh walleye, this is the best way to do it!!

I have had the pleasure of visiting Watson's Kaby lodge the past 3 years and I'am already booked for another week in 2017. The owners Tom and Michelle and staff are very friendly and professional and go out of their way to make sure your stay is a good one. The cabins are clean and the boats are very well maintained. The food is excellent and the fishing is incredible. If your looking to book a fly-in fishing trip, Watsons Kaby Lodge should be at the top of your list.

Watson's Kay Lodge is on Kabinakagami Lake in Ontario Canada! This is a 31,000 acre lake with Northern Pike, Walleye, White Fish and Perch. The fishing was outstanding and we all brought our limits back. We had shore lunches and ate a lot of delicious Walleye. The lodge store is very professional and stocked with quality clothing and fishing tackle. We opted for the American Plan that included breakfast and dinner, along with box lunches or equipment for shore lunches. The food was outstanding and professionally prepared by a very qualified chef. The service at meals was outstanding! The dock boys were always available and when they saw a boat approaching the dick, they would run to the docks to secure your boat and assist with whatever you needed. The boats and motors were very well maintained and ran smoothly. The owners, Tom and Michelle, were always available, very informative and very personable! This is a "fly in lake" and I highly recommend this lodge for any fisherman!
