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.

August 2 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 2nd, 2011:  The fish are biting!  Ten more trophies at Aswap Lake last week, and that was just one angler!  On Bolton, we've been getting a few trophies every day, slowly but surely we're having another great season with the big fish!  No real big spurts of action where one group catches them all one week and then the next couple of weeks it's slow, so far this year it's been nicely spread out!  We've [...]

July 24 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 24, 2011:  The weather has settled down again and it looks like we're going to have a great week for fishing!  Not too hot or windy and we've had more than our share of hot weather this season.  There's been a fair bit of rain lately so the forest fires in the area do not seem to be an issue any more. More trophy Lake Trout and Pike over the past 2 weeks as well [...]

July 11 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 11th, 2011: We just had our most productive week of the season, the first week of July was a real good one!  There are a ton of pictures from Joint Lake, they landed a bunch of Lake Trout, some really nice Walleye and some great Pike too!  The guys at Aswap haven't sent me their pictures yet but they landed 10 trophies and there were only 2 guys fishing!  At Bolton we had two guys [...]

July 4 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 4th, 2011:  I didn't quite match Tom's numbers on the Brook Trout but we landed 19 Brook Trout and 5 of them were trophies!  The biggest was just over 22 inches, the pictures are below! It's been a very warm summer so far, today it's cloudy and more comfortable with a bit of cloud cover.  I'm hoping for a real good trophy day with this weather! Here are some more great pictures!

June 27 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 27, 2011:  The weather has been consistently warm for the past few weeks other than today.  Without too much wind lately to stir up the water and the warm temperatures there were a bunch of us who went swimming a few times.  The surface water was very comfortable but if you dove down you could feel the much cooler water just a couple feet down.  There hasn't been much rain lately so the lake is [...]

June 18 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 18, 2011:  It's been a bit windy lately but the fishing has been good!  We had one real good rain storm but other than that it's been pretty dry lately.  We'll likely get a bit more rain tonight as a system is passing through later.  The Lake Trout are starting to go a bit deeper, I've had reports of about 30 feet so just a bit of weight will do, one or two ounces as [...]

June 11 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 11, 2011:  The weather has been too nice to be in the office doing a web update, and it takes time to get the camera cards from the guides and guests to get the pictures for the update.  June has been nice and warm with little rain so far.  The water level is slowing dropping but it's still much higher than normal.  With this nice weather I keep expecting a day with 10 trophies but [...]

May 31 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 31, 2011:  A bit of a nasty day today but the weather has been pretty good for May this year!  The fishing has been great too, the guys at Joint Lake have been doing very well, the last group had a couple Lake Trout trophies, a couple big Pike and a couple of trophy Walleye.  The group at Joint Lake this week already has 3 trophy Walleye in the first 2 days!  Aswap Lake is [...]

May 20 2011 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 20th, 2011:  Things are much more under control now!  The weather has been amazing for May, almost too hot for working a couple of days!  There's no ice left on Bolton or Aswap Lake, there's a bit floating around on Joint Lake but I'm betting that it will be gone tomorrow.  The new staff that are here already are bring shown around the lake and are stocking the shore lunch spots with fire wood and [...]
