How to find your way back to the lodge
Navigation on Esnagami Lake, even for the first time visitor, can be simple. If you worry that it will be difficult to find your way back to the lodge, help is available. The Esnagami Lake depth chart (map) is included in the Boating US & Canada App by Navionics. The app works with many mobile devices without data (GPS Location must be enabled on the device though) and will help you in navigation on the lake and finding the depth or your favourite fishing sport next time while you are on the water. It’s definitely worth trying.
