"We had a great time at Ritchie Falls.  Art and Danith our guides were awesome and you can tell that they 
have received a wealth of knowledge from their mentor Matt.  We received a lot more from them than 
expected.  The food and accommodations were above par as well."

- Chris Van Wieren, September 19, 2015

What they say online!

 

"It's a great lodge with amazing hunting and fishing. It's a very well kept secret. Cabins are nice.  I hunted for years over the hill and far away. Many big bears and a bull moose a year.  Bull Lake Lodge is another great option. But Ritchie is newly owned and ready to go."

- JF Sabou, Ontario Outdoor Magazine  April 16, 2014

Podcast Interview with Matthew Owl, Manager of Ritchie Falls Resort.  Aired July 16, 2017 on Blue Fish Radio.  28minutes 04seconds

In part two of this Blue Fish Radio episode, Matthew Owl, the First Nations Manager of Ritchie Falls Resort, speaks to Lawrence Gunther about growing up on reserve with an Ojibwa father and a mother who comes from New York City. Mathew touches on his 15 years of experience with delivering and promoting indigenous tourism, and how he and his family found themselves leading on the purchase and eventual transformation of Ritchie Falls Resort, a 100-year old fish/hunt camp located just north-west of Sudbury Ontario. Five years into the project, over $1-million invested in rebuilding infrastructure, and the business is turning a profit. Matthew and Lawrence explore what it takes to learn from past mistakes and to forge new opportunities inbusiness and in life.

Podcast Interview with Kyla Lee Owl, Co-Manager of Ritchie Falls Resort  Aired


In episode 145 of Blue fish Radio Lawrence Gunther sits down with Ritchie Falls Resort’s co-manager and guide Kyla Lee Owl to discuss her passion for hunting and fishing. A dedicated bow huntress and angler, Kyla walks Lawrence through the process of sustainably managing the 1,000 square kilometer bear hunt area deeded to the Resort by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Hear why Kyla believes women hunters are far more likely to bag large game. Kyla talks about her life journey circling back-around to her origins where she’s most comfortable – in the wild. And now, Kyla and her life partner Matthew Owl are working hard to transform Ritchie Falls Resort into an indigenous-inspired eco-tourism year-round operation.
