about medical problems?
Persons with serious medical problems SHOULD NOT come
to Latreille Lake Lodge.
Latreille Lake is in a very remote region of Northwest
Ontario. An emergency under ideal weather conditions may
take several hours for rescue to be fully implemented.
Latreille Lake Lodge does
not have any trained medical personnel or medical facilities.
In addition, because Latreille Lake
Lodge is accessible only by float plane or helicopter,
emergency medical attention may not be available during
foul weather or after dark as all aircraft that come to
Latreille Lake fly with VISUAL FLIGHT RULES ONLY.
What about transportation?
All advertised prices are based on chartered float planes
originating from Red Lake, Ontario. Float plane flights
originating from points
other than Red Lake are available at an extra charge.

Are firearms permitted?
Firearms are not permitted at Latreille
Lake Lodge with the exception of hunting season.
Handguns are not permitted in Ontario.
What about insects?
Mosquitos are virtually non existent during the day on
the open waters and open areas around the lodge. The closer
you come in contact with shaded areas and trees during
the day, the more likely you will come in contact with
insects. Black flies are most active in late May and early
June. We encourage you to bring some form of insect repellent.
Skin-So-Soft works well. We provide mosquito coils for
the lodge and cabin to keep insects at a minimum during
the evening hours.
What is a Conservation License?
Latreille Lake Lodge has
voluntarily adopted the use of conservation fishing licenses. This license permits guests to take only those
fish that they will consume during their stay. The program
is intended to return larger and more fertile fish back
to the waters that will in turn produce more fingerlings
to the lake. This catch-and-release method results in
more and larger fish. We prefer that guests do not take
fish home, but this policy is not mandatory. A fresh walleye
tastes much better than a frozen walleye. There will be
plenty to eat during your stay!
In order for this program to work effectively, fish
must be returned to the water as quickly as possible.
Anglers must practice good handling techniques to minimize
injury and stress to the fish. It is important to take
pictures quickly and return the fish back to the water.
Do I need to bring my passport?
Yes. Beginning June 1, 2009 passports will be required

from the Department of Homeland Security at www.dhs.gov.
Additionally, if a member of your party has a DUI or a
