The lodge is located approximately 85 air miles NW from nearest air base. Access is by air only, either in a Turbo Otter or a Twin Otter. Lodge offer self-guided fly-in fishing in Northern Saskatchewan. Excellent opportunity for a new owner to use lodge as a private/corporate retreat, small business or both. Full turnkey with exclusive use of three water systems.
The lodge sleeps up to 10 guests and offers propane cooking refrigerators, hot water, electric generator, gravity fed water, hot showers, and heat by a wood-burning stove. The bathroom is via an outhouse. There is a satellite phone on site for emergency calls. While rugged, the fishing here is outstanding.
Only one group at a time and guests are on their own. No schedules to keep and guests have exclusive use of two beautiful lakes and a river. Lodge has always has been operated a "catch and release" operation, and the number of fishermen is limited to fully protect the resource for now and generations to come. Guests can consume all of the "eating size" they want in camp, but return the larger fish to be caught again. This is a wonderful fishery for walleye, northern pike, lake trout, and whitefish. The scenery and wildlife are spectacular!!
The local waterways are a haven for trophy Northern Pike. Lodge offers fishing for big Lake Trout, Walleye, and Whitefish. the record Northern Pike caught is 27 pounds and guest should expect to catch hundreds of northern pike in the 3- to 5-pound range.
If guest focus is walleye fishing they can head down to where the river enters the main lake. There guests of the lodge will find active walleye fishing with average fish between 2 and 4 pounds and trophies weighing in the 6 pound range. This is a cold water Lake and the river too. So the Fish here grow slowly, which is why the lodge practices a strict catch and release only policy.
The other lake is a gin clear body of water with plenty of lake trout in the 4 to 6 pound range. The best month for Lake Trout fishing in September along the quiet edges where the water is warmest. Lake also offers outstanding 5 to 6 pound Northern Pike fishing, especially in the bays. All guests need here to enjoy fishing is light gear as the fish are plentiful and will wear you down in no time.

Main Lake: Highly irregular, approximately 4-4 '/2 miles long. Tea stained colored water. Up to76 feet deep. Many islands with a lot of structure, weed beds later summer. Walleyes 1 # to 3# average. (Largest 6-7#). Northern pike average 3-6#, largest 274, most groups catch a 20# fish. Lodge is on this lake.
Second Lake: Circular, 1 3/4 miles in diameter. Lake is gin clear, up to 90 feet deep, and loaded with lake trout. One sizeable, shallow back- bay is pike heaven. To access, guests take a short boat trip from behind the cabin, up the river, to a marked trail to the other lake. About a quarter-mile walk. 2 boats on lake. Northerns 3-8 lbs. Lake Trout 3-6 lbs. Lots of fish!
River: Small river that feeds the main lake, eventually flowing south to the Churchill River. North of the lodge, from the inflow upstream, the river gets smaller, sluggish, and more difficult to navigate due to fallen timber; however, early in the year, the mouth of the river is full of spawning walleye. Heading down the river from the lodge may be adventurous as there is a series of waterfalls approx. 30' high. There are spawning walleye at the outflow and the deeper holes above the falls early in the year. Later the walleye move to the deeper water of the Main Lake and can be caught off rocky points and in deeper holes.
