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.

July 17 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 17th, 2013:  It's been a busy couple of weeks with an overabundance of trophies!!!  The group who just departed on Sunday known as SST had a total of 42 trophy fish including: 28 trophy Pike, 10 trophy Walleye, 3 trophy Lake Trout and one trophy Brook Trout!  This will probably stand as our best week of the season and although there weren't any oversized trophies, it was great to see so many big fish caught [...]

July 4 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 4th, 2013:  Happy 4th of July!!  We woke up early this morning to a solid downpour along with a great light show and extra loud thunder!  It was a welcome change from the 90 degree temperatures we've had over the past 3 days and for the first time ever, I'm looking forward to the cold front that will be hitting this weekend.  The surface temperature has jumped up into the 70's but it's really just [...]

June 22 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 22nd, 2013:  Other than a few showers so far this season, our weather has been fantastic!!  The fishing has been very good as well, lots of big Pike lately with some great Lake Trout, Walleye and Brook Trout action!  The new boats are a hit and our break water seems to be helping with keeping the wave action down so the boats don't get beat up as much while tied to the dock.  A more [...]

June 12 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 12th, 2013:  Another great 10 days of fishing!!  It's been raining for the past couple of days but before that we were enjoying 80 degree weather with little wind.  The rain is somewhat welcome to help keep any potential forest fires from starting up and to help bring the water level up just a bit more.  The water has come up to a normal level but it's still a bit lower than I like to [...]

June 2 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 2, 2013:  Camp opening is a lot of work!  The outpost camps are ready and the guests have arrived.  The water is still rising and the fishing has been really good already.  Most of our trophy Pike caught this year have been on small lures like jigs (not always on purpose) and the Walleyes are schooling in the usual spots like West River, Hole #1, Mink and Woods Channel.  The Pike are in the bays [...]

May 17 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 17, 2013:  I flew back to the lodge a couple of days ago and things are looking better than expected with the ice.  We now have enough open water in the back bay to land the float plane and the ice in the big parts of the lake has really taken a beating over the past few days.  Gorgeous weather today, we were in T-shirts at 8:00 a.m. working on the ice building a wave [...]

May 10 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 10, 2013:  I flew a few staff into the lodge yesterday and there is still a lot of ice.  We cut a few holes with the ice auger and it's pretty thick ice but it's starting to break down as it was not very strong.  There was not much open water anywhere, except right along the shore and around the rivers.  If we get a couple of weeks of good weather, there should be a [...]

April 27 2013 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

April 27th, 2013:  It's been a very long winter in Manitoba this year, we set many records for the latest and coldest spring.  That being said, it looks like our ice is going to be late this year, but hopefully this will only affect the first few guests who were scheduled to come in around May 21st.  I've already rescheduled a few groups who were booked for those dates, now I just have to hope that [...]

December 20 2012 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

December 20, 2012:  Happy Holidays!!  It sure looks like Christmas up here in Winnipeg!  We have lots of snow and ice and it's been a much colder winter this year than last and we're less than a month into it!  Up North they're saying we have a record amount of snow, there's pretty good ice but with all that snow there's going to be a lot of slush as well.  Tom and I have been talking [...]
