Discount for 2021 Pre-Bookings

With the first signs of winter upon us, we are focusing on the upcoming 2021 fishing season. We are optimistic travel restrictions due to the pandemic will ease but the current increase in infection rates is troubling.

The Lodge is again offering a 10% discount for all 2021 bookings made prior to December 31, 2020. (Rates are posted on the “Booking” page.) Deposits will be waved until such time NT health authorities confirm travel protocol.

Contact for reservations and or inquiries.

Rutledge Lake Lodge News

Because of the current state of uncertainty due to Covid-19, regrettably Rutledge Lake Lodge is suspending Lodge operations for the 2020 season.

All deposits will be returned in full by March 31, 2020 or can be applied to bookings for the 2021 fishing season.

In the upcoming months, RLL will be offering on our blog, discounts for 2021 pre-bookings.

Thank-you and stay safe,



Fantastic Fishing, Weather and Company, June had it all!

The Artison Floor Fashion crew from Edmonton were a blast, Mike and Greg kept everyone well entertained. Mike may have had the biggest Laker of the trip hooked and to the boat! Unfortunately (Mike and Greg have different versions why!), a good look was all they got! What fishing trip doesn’t include a story of the “big one” that got away?

Seasons Greetings

With winter finally here and Christmas fast approaching, fishing fanatics are “making their list (secretly perhaps??) and checking it twice!”

Rutledge Lake Lodge checked a few things off our list this year.  New fridges, Garmin electronics, solar panels and inverters were nice additions to the Lodge in June.

In August, new LED lights were installed in the cabins, running water with separate hot water tanks are now operational in all cabins,  and the interior logs have been restored and clear coated.   

This Christmas may you check a few special things off your list as well.  If one of those things is an exclusive fantastic fishing vacation, come to the spectacular Northwest Territories and Rutledge Lake Lodge where that one in a lifetime “Trophy Laker or Northern Pike” awaits!         Rutledge Lake Lodge sincerely wishes you  Merry Christmas and all the best in 2019!

Max Gets It Done!

Max Kappeler enjoyed a great trip to the Lodge this spring.  He started the trip off with a nice laker and finished  on the last morning with a 35lb beauty.  It was Max’s biggest fish to date, and our cameras…yes our cameras were back at camp!

Max has confirmed he’ll be back next spring to get that picture!
