Fishing is the main focus of this lodge. The lake is stuffed with Trophy Northern Pike and Monster Lake Trout. Considered one of the top fishing lakes in Northern Saskatchewan for Northern Pike and Lake Trout and offers a quality of fishing that only a wilderness fly-in lodge can provide. Catch & Release on all large trophy fish maintains this great fishing experience. Guests sometimes get a big surprise with a gigantic Burbot (Ling) on the line and most times the fisherperson was not even fishing for them.
Then you have those monster Northern Pike. Expect common pike in the 3-4 pound range and with a good day of fishing, you can catch 50-75 in a day. The expectation is 3-4 pike in the 36-inch range and trophy Pike that approach the 47-inch range. On average, each group can expect to catch 4 or 5 pike over 36 inches and 2 or 3 pike over 45 inches. There are lots on monster size Northern Pike over 47 inches. Guests who know the lake or others who are expert pike hunters usually catch many more.
The Lake Trout here are big too. Lake Trout are akin to Silver Salmon when it comes to fighting. The common Lake Trout are plentiful in the 2-5 pound range and there are plenty of Lunkers in the 6-10 pound range. Trophy Lake Trout weigh in the 20-35-pound range. A good day of fishing is 10-20 Lake Trout with the chance to battle the big ones.
There's more to do other than fishing for Trophy Northern Pike and Trophy Lake Trout. The lodge offers many other activities such as a sandy beach leading to fresh blue water, ideal for playing water sports with family and swimming, exploring the backcountry trails and much more, which will make for a fulfilling wilderness vacation that will leave your guests with memories to last a lifetime.
