Sleepy Dog Cabins sits on the shores of Wabaskang Lake and offers some of the best Walleye fishing in the area. This is a fishing haven with plenty of adventure.

Fishing with Sleepy Dog Cabins

Wabaskang Lake is part of the Cedar River Watershed and offers excellent fishing for Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Lake Trout, Large Perch, and Whitefish. The lake has an average depth of about 20 feet and makes for some excellent Walleye Fishing. The shores are prime areas from which to target both Walleye and Northern Pike. The best time to fish Northern pike is from mid-August through the first or second week of September. If you love to reel in Jumbo Perch, one after the other, then the best time to fish is from May-June. Smallmouth Bass weigh in from 3-6 pounds and are becoming more established. The Lodge asks for a volunteer catch-and-release fishing program for trophy sized fish. The local area and community continue to improve the watershed so that fishing remains strong. Their efforts have paid off in better spawns and bigger fish.

Boat rentals run $120/day or $800 per week. The lodge rents 17.5 foot Lund boats with 40 hp motors. Guests are welcome to bring their boats, and the lodge may supply gasoline and minnows.

Overall, the fishing here is good. The lake offers plenty of different fishing habitats that offer outstanding fishing for all kinds of fishermen. This is a lodge that is ideal for families, groups, business groups, and even weddings.
