Enjoy Great Smallmouth Bass Fishing at Maple Ridge

Hatch Lake is 243 acres with a maximum depth of 88 feet. The water clarity is 17 feet on this home to Small-mouth Bass, Large-mouth Bass, Walleye, Northern, Crappie, Perch, Bluegill and Sun fishing lake.  Hatch lake has excellent structure for Walleye and it has some of the best Small-mouth fishing in northern Minnesota. If you want to try more fishing spots, lift your prop and travel into Twin Lakes. You can also travel by canoe or small boat through the channel into beautiful Big Turtle Lake. There are also many other lakes within a few minutes drive for your fishing pleasure.

Live bait and gas are available at the lodge. We have a fish cleaning house with electricity and running water and plenty of freezer space to store your catch.  Boat and motor rentals are available and we offer a private concrete boat ramp for launching your own boat.  There is plenty of dock space and great fishing right off the docks. So whether you are looking to relax with the family on the shore of beautiful Hatch Lake or want to challenge that monster Bass, Walleye or Northern Pike, Maple Ridge Resort has is all.
