I have to say that the first time I went to Ritchie's End of Trail I was very skeptical about going to a new place. What a welcomed surprise it was that Brian would go to so much trouble to make our trip so enjoyable. He went beyond my expectations to make our trip a very memorable one. He really gave us a lot more than he had to and it was greatly appreciated. I would not consider going anywhere else.

Looking forward to my third year.

Hi Brian, just wanted to let you know our group had another great fishing adventure. Your accommodations and meal plan are without doubt the best. Lots of good memories.

Brian - Ritchie's is an ideal set-up for two retired guys wanting to enjoy a week of good fishing. Boats are excellent (gas included) with a private dock and the well stocked cabins offer privacy yet are only a few steps away from all that camp has to offer.

Appreciate all your efforts to put us on good fishing holes! Looking forward to 2014!

Rustic, rugged, fishing at its best – with champagne service on time, every time!!

This was my third trip to your lodge and already I am thinking about my fourth. Spring will not com soon enough for me. I really enjoy the easy and beautiful trip from southern Ontario. Compared to other lodges that I have stayed at, your value,fishing, and customer service is simply unbeatable. Your cottages are extremely comfortable, always clean, fully stocked and ready to go when we arrive. The only thing that beats the fishing is you and your staff going the extra mile to ensure that our vacation is better than the last. I think that is why you have so many repeat customers. We really appreciate everything you have done for us over the years. These trips are memories that I will have forever. Everyone seems to be working harder and longer these days, and I think it is very important to get away with the guys at least once a year to fish and recharge the batteries.

Thanks again for everything. Stay well, and see you in the spring!

For over 20 years I have been coming to Bisco, with my Dad and Uncle and now with my own family and friends. Brian and Ritchie's continue to make this the highlight of my year, every year. Great Host, great accommodations and great fishing. Already looking forward to next season!

Whether I am with family in August or friends in the fall, Ritchie's End of the Trail has always been a place to unwind. No, T.V. no phones, no internet, and miles of lake - the fish factory!!!!

Brian - Thanks for being a great host. My best memories are from Bisco.

Brian, Thanks for the great vacations over the past two years. Year one was “getting to know” the lake which is massive. Last year was great, lots of fish and great weather for early June. Ritchie’s is our new annual retreat. So much closer than the great fishing of the far north in Ontario, with equal results. Brian and his staff have been very accommodating and take care of all our needs. The food choices on the full package is not only varied, plentiful and handy but saves so much time and effort prior to our trip. The most economical of methods of provisioning for the week. Looking forward to 2014.

Ritchie’s End Of Trail Lodge is a holds a special place in my heart! It is by far the best fishing resort I have been to in the past 20 years. I have been to many fishing resorts and Ritchie’s is second to none! The accommodations are clean and the appliances are kept in excellent working shape. The cabins are fully screened off so that there are no bugs in the cabins and this is important to me and then there’s the fishing. I have had luck anywhere and everywhere on the lake. Some spots are far better than others but there is no shortage of nice tasting fish in this lake. The staff are friendly, helpful and always available. The boats are always kept in good condition as well. I have brought my wife with me on several occasions, do I need to say more? This place is a gem.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you to yourself and Andy, I had a brilliant time and actually managed to catch some "proper" sized fish this year.

I recall chatting with Glenn as we were out on the lake and saying that you guys go above and beyond to make our stay such fun. Meeting us at the dock when we returned from the evening fish and helping us with our gear; showing us the spots to fish; immediately sorting out any glitches we may have encountered; and allowing us to enjoy some evening get together's in your home. You guys are and amazing team and the most welcoming of hosts.

Thank you once again and I look forward to next year. Take care and enjoy your winter getaway. Kind regards.
