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 13, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

August 13th, 2010:  Wow, we have had a lot of rain here over the past few weeks.  With just a few good down pours, the lake has risen 3 feet and it looks like it's going to come up again after this rain finally stops.  We think it might be over the main dock by the end of the season if it continues like this!  The higher water did not slow down the big Pike, but [...]

July 26, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 26th, 2010:  It's been hot up at the lodge lately!  Luckily in the evenings it's been cooling down to sleep and we've had some over night showers to keep us cool!  It's been a nice mix of trophy Pike, Walleye and Lake Trout lately, but we haven't been to the Brook Trout river much at all this month.  Can't wait to get back, they'll all be ready to hit again! Enjoy some more pictures!: [...]

July 5, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

July 5th, 2010: We still have not seen a lot of rain yet this season but the water has come up almost a foot on our lakes because of the rains all around us, especially from the south.  We've had a few really good days of fishing recently and some individual successes that should impress the most avid fishermen!  Just yesterday 2 fishermen, Bill and Dan arrived from Winnipeg along with another group who was going [...]

June 28, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 28th, 2010:  I've been updating our facebook page a bit more often, that's why I've updated this page less than usual. The weather is very cool, cloudy and windy today but it's not going to last!  We've had a good run of trophies as well, very consistent unlike many years where there's one lucky week when all the stars align and a dozen trophies per day are caught.  We're averaging 3-5 trophies per day which [...]

June 16th, 2010:  The weather has been very warm lately and the fishing has been hot!  More big Pike, Walleye and Lake Trout are being caught every day and the Brook Trout have been good every time we take the day trip over to the river!  The outposts are doing well, trophies from both Joint Lake and Aswap Lake are being caught weekly by the groups.

June 5, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

June 5th, 2010: It's been a productive week with lots of nice fish!  The bigger Pike are turning on and we've had a good mix of trophy Walleye, Lake Trout and Brook Trout as well.  The weather has been very nice for late May, early June fishing.  Just a bit of rain and not too much wind, we've had mostly sunny days which is great for the Pike.  We have a very full camp from now [...]

May 26th, 2010:  Things are well underway here at the lodge!  We have already welcomed our first guest for the lodge and at Joint Lake and we're already on our second group at Aswap Lake.  The first group of 6 guys who fished Aswap for 5 and a half days had a great time again.  They've been fishing Aswap since the first year we opened the camp and they always take the first week of the [...]

May 3, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

May 3rd, 2010: We're about to get started with another great season of fishing, fun and food! Our next big project is the fuel and freight haul as well as getting the camp open and ready for business. Later this week I'm going to Flin Flon to get trained on the Cessna 206 so that I can fly the float plane this summer. We're going to have a pilot hired to do 99% of the flying [...]

March 12, 2010 Bolton Lake Lodge & Outposts Update

March 12th, 2010:  Tom and I just got back from the North yesterday, mission accomplished!!  The new boat, new motors and a truck we're all taken into the lodge and I can happily say with minimal damage.  We had our share of breakdowns with the equipment including a seized starter or seized engine on the Bombadier, over heating on the Case 350 Cat, no fuel to the Case 450 Dozer, some new dents to the Dodge [...]
