About Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts

Trevor and Jodi Dick are the 2nd generation owners of Bolton Lake Lodge. Trevor’s father Brian Dick bought Bolton Lake Lodge in 1988 as a project for the Manitoba Government. His job was to sell the lodge as it owed money to the Province, but there was a lot of dispute over who he could sell the lodge to. In the end, Brian bought Bolton Lake and his plan was to give it a quick overhaul and sell it to whomever he wanted for a quick profit. Brian quickly learned that Bolton Lake was a special place with unlimited potential for expansion and improvements. All of Brian’s kids worked at the lodge in one capacity or another over time as it became the family business.

Fall 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

October 17th, 2016: Our season has come to an end and we're back in Winnipeg until May 2017! It was a great season for fishing and bear hunting but we were disappointed with our moose hunting season. In that light, we will no longer be offering moose hunts. I have had great personal success both guiding and on my own with moose hunting but the pressure to produce when the moose and weather will not cooperate [...]

July 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 13th, 2016:  Well that time flew by!  It's been a great season with lots of big fish already, some pretty good weather for the most part and a great season for staff!  Our pilot Marc and his helper Isaac are doing an excellent job keeping the outposts clean and running smoothly.  They are both very hard working and they make sure the guests have everything they need for their trips.  Heather, Kelly, Deane and Jackie [...]

June 18, 2009 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 18th, 2009: It's been a funny season for weather so far this year, we've seen snow more often than I've ever seen in late May and June and now we've had three 80 degree days in a row! It's a bit cooler today, but we're okay with that. These drastic changes in weather has made it tough to pattern the fish but we're still getting trophies every day. One of the best days this year [...]

June 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 4th, 2016: Wow, time flies when you're getting camp ready for the season!! We've been open a couple of weeks now and back in camp since early May. We started off with just a small crew of staff bringing in freight and getting things going. It wasn't the smoothest opening ever but the staff really pulled together and accomplished a lot in what felt like a short time! Barry and Willie took care of a [...]

February 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

February 9th, 2016: Well the All Canada Shows have come and gone and it was great to see many familiar faces at the shows! In Chicago, St. Charles to be more precise, the show was very busy and it was good that I brought a friend along to help answer questions and talk fishing! We were both busy talking most of the show and we celebrated with a Blackhawks game on Sunday night, compliments of a [...]

January 2016 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

January 5, 2016:  Happy New Year!  It's been a very mild winter in Manitoba so far this year so I haven't been able to get out ice fishing very much and the winter roads may not be built at all this year!  Creeks are still open and lakes barely have enough ice for snowmobiles so it's very unlikely that they will build enough ice for the heavy trucks.  I was planning to bring in 4 new [...]

November 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

November 23rd, 2015:  Our season has been over for just over a month now and our Newsletters that we mail out every fall should be in your mailbox this week!  We drove down to Fergus Falls, MN this weekend to mail them out and to participate in our daughter's hockey tournament.  Jordan played well as well as the rest of our team and we ended up in 2nd place for the tournament.  I've really enjoyed being [...]

September 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

September 3rd, 2015: Our season is just getting wrapped up here at Bolton Lake!  We have one group left at Aswap Lake and then a few hunters coming in later in the month to go after big Bull Moose and possibly a bear or two!  We will shutter the lodge for the winter in early October and we might make a trip in this winter to bring in a few supplies and do a bit of ice [...]

August 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 2nd, 2015:  Sorry for the delay in posting, my computer was in Winnipeg getting the Hard Drive replaced.  We have had a really nice season with great weather, fishing, staff and guests!  It's a bit cooler today and we've had a couple of showers but I think I prefer this weather to 90 degrees and no wind!  We have not had much rain this year so the water levels have dropped steadily since mid June [...]

July 2015 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 2, 2015:  The weather has turned pretty warm and the cabbage weeds are coming up!  The Walleye are biting all over the lake and the Lake Trout and Brook Trout have been pretty good too!!  We've already had a couple of 46 and 47 inch Pike, a 31 inch Walleye and a couple of 41 inch Lake Trout.  It's been pretty dry lately and there are forest fires in other areas of the Province so [...]
