Lake Athabasca sits just shy of where Alberta, the Yukon, and Saskatchewan meet. In fact, about two-thirds of the lake is in Saskatchewan and the one-quarter is in Alberta. The lodge is actually a series of lodges that include Johnston Island Lodge, and Spring Bay Lodge. Both lodges offer different advantages in terms of fishing and both offer a comfortable place to call home while you enjoy fishing in this remote Saskatchewan paradise.

Fishing at Johnston Island Lodge

The lodge holds upwards of 12 guests and is the bigger of the two options. This is a trophy Lake Trout section of water that offers good options for 30 plus pound Northern Pike. The waterways here offer a challenging range of options for fishing. This is close water fishing around islands, underwater reefs, and quiet bays, all of which are all a perfect habitat for big fat Lake Trout and wily Northern Pike. In addition, expect outstanding Arctic Grayling fishing here too.

The accommodations at Johnston Island Lodge is via two-person cabins with lights and propane baseboard heaters. Hot showers and the washroom are shared space.

Fishing at Spring Bay Lodge

Spring Bay Lodge holds upwards of six people and offers outstanding fishing for Northern Pike and the occasional 40-pound Lake Trout. The best time to fish for Northern Pike here is August when the biggest Pike tend to be caught. The water is full of sunken reefs off the shore and away from the sheltered bays. There, you find the runs of Walleye, big Lake Trout, and plenty of Grayling. The quieter bays with the weed beds is where the big Northern Pike lay in wait.

The lodge offers four double rooms. There are three showers, three washrooms, a full kitchen, and a wood-burning stove. In the evening, guests enjoy the comfort of the lounge area where you can discuss the one's that got away or your strategy for the next day of trophy fishing.

Guides are available at both lodges. Fishing starts right after breakfast which is served at 7 a.m. The guides feed you lunch along the lake and dinner is ready at 7 p.m. There are rods and reels available, or you are welcome to bring your own. There are no fly fishing supplies here so bring your own fly gear.
