"Utter peace and quiet with a touch of pure exhilaration is what I found on my trip to Reel North Outfitters at McTavish Lake.
Being in such a remote place with all the comforts of home, made for an adventure of a lifetime.
From the thrill of reeling in the next catch to gathering for a delicious fish fry,
Brian and Candy Goodwin provided the best five star experience for my 'Reel North' adventure!"


DEDICATION: Charles (Charlie) LeMoal Jan 30, 1932 - Sept 4, 2014.

McTavish Lake and Reel North Outfitters would not be a part of our lives without my dad, Charlie, who worked here for years with the previous owner and then gave us so much of his time and energy to help us build it into what it is today. Dad taught us all to fish and to love and respect the outdoors and nature. He loved to sit on the deck in the early morning, sip coffee and watch "TLC" (The Lake Channel) He loved to fish and was always ready to share his story of the "big one" that hangs on the wall in the lodge. We lost "Charlie" to cancer in fall of 2014, but he will always be part of McTavish for us. It was his favorite place on earth and we hope he is Forever Fishing.
