Family owned for 50+ years.
Third Generation, Family Owned.
Matt and Amanda started taking over the general management and ownership of the lodge in 2016. Together – always with the help of the rest of the family (Rob, Mike, & Dan) – we have worked hard to continue the old traditions put in place by Grandpa Doug, but also create new ones – focusing on professionalism, service, staff retention, and quality equipment. Never idle, every year we invest and improve the lodge, from minor upgrades to equipment, to complete overhauls of cabin interiors. For us, Kasba is more than a job, more than a lifestyle – it’s a legacy, one we plan to continue for our children.
It is our commitment to provide the best fishing lodge experience in Northern Canada. Period.
Stewardship of the natural environment.
The fishing in Kasba Lake, the Kazan River and our surrounding watershed is every bit as good today, as when Kasba Lake Lodge opened five decades ago. Since the very beginning, the lodge’s overriding policy has been conservation of the fishery, and stewardship of the natural environment. This starts with our devotion to catch-and-release fishing. Shortly after opening, Kasba began requiring anglers to release all large fish—the first lodge in Canada to enact this policy.
Stewardship means more than just protecting our magnificent lake trout, northern pike and Arctic grayling. It means the responsible and sustainable use of the entire Kasba ecosystem—a landscape virtually untouched since the last glaciers retreated across it some 10,000 years ago.
All of our operating policies consider our role as stewards of this special place, including:
- We participate in Costa del Mar’s Kick Plastic campaign to reduce reliance on single-use plastics
- We use only modern clean-running, fuel efficient four-stroke motors
- We recycle all used fishing line
- Our shore lunches are cooked with wood fires
- All cans are flown out for disposal
- We meticulously collect any garbage from shore lunches to remain natural and pristine
- Guides take pride in recovering any trash that flies out of the boat, or found in the lakes & rivers
The fishing was amazing. Guides were great as was the food. The house keepers were also very attentive. Great experience overall! The trip to the kazan river was the highlight of the trip, huge grayling and trout.
