Fly in lodge is located on Lawrence Lake, a beautiful 25-minute flight from Nester Falls, Ontario. The Canadian fly in is nestled in a sandy, protected bay, surrounded by a forest of beautiful, towering pines.
Our beautiful, new kitchen was built for our 2016 season and 15th Anniversary of owning Tang. Enjoy!

Your Canadian fly in fishing trip takes place on 1000’s of acres lakes with excellent walleye, largemouth bass, northern, and lake trout fishing, some smallmouth also. You can fish right in front of our Canadian vacation lodge or venture out hours and hours from Tang. Tang is the only resort on all the lakes we fish and is located in the “Ontario Living Legacy (OLL), which is the equivalent of our National Parks, with no future development allowed. Lawrence Lake gets as deep as 350′ and the trophy lake trout are always waiting. Walleye are plentiful, northerns are everywhere and the largemouth bass are a thrill. The smallmouth population is increasing with more and more “smallies” caught every year. Variety is the spice of life, and this Ontario Canada fly in fishing trip offers unsurpassed variety to make your fly in fishing trip exciting and adventurous, no matter how long you stay.
Lake Trout fishing is excellent and an exciting bonus! Try it… even you “walleye guys”, you’ll love it.
Wildlife abounds in our area and you will truely experience Canadian wilderness. Miles and miles of untouched forests, hundreds of islands and bays of every size and shape. You’re likely to see bald eagles, loons, deer, moose, large turtles, beaver, otters, fox and maybe even an elusive black bear. Feel like a dip in the lake? Tang is located in a beautiful, sandy bay, which allows the water to actually warm up a bit for a great swim. How about a jump from 10 – 50 feet into 50 feet of water? The cliffs await your bravery.
Pictographs can be seen on various rock faces and all carry a specific meaning. A “log flume”, dating back to the 1930’s, is still intact and offers a beautiful spot to take some fabulous pictures with the water rushing over the logs. The flume was built to “spring” the trees that had been logged over the boulders on their way down to the Rainy River. Check this flume out at the SW corner of Lawrence lake. Many rapids and even a couple water falls can be found with some adventure while you are out chasing that trophy catch.
You have all heard and dreamed of a “Canadian Shore Lunch” out on a small island or on the perfect rock point. Well, at Tang, we will mark some of the nicest shore lunch spots you have ever visited on your map. Easy access and protection from the wind of the day. Flat, with good spots to pull up your boat. And, for the water lovers, even some spots with excellent swimming and “cannonballs”.
