Grand-Slam Angling Thrills
Catch the rewards of northern Saskatchewan’s finest fishing. Imagine hooking pike, lake trout, walleye and arctic grayling all in one fishing trip. Easily accessed by charter jet from Winnipeg, Wollaston is Canada’s twelfth largest lake. Its 800 square miles of cool clear water allow fish to reach trophy size and multiply in prodigious numbers. You’ll enjoy top-rated lodging and equipment unmatched in wilderness lodges. Knowledgeable guides can offer helpful advice to the novice or find that monster fish for the avid trophy hunter. Wake up to the aroma of fresh-brewed coffee delivered right to your private cabin. Wollaston makes a perfect location for incentive and business meetings, with a club-like lounge to relax in after the day’s fishing.
Wollaston Lake Lodge
Each day you’ll head out with your guide in an 18 foot lund Pro V equipped with 80 hp motors, Minn Kota trolling motor and Lowrance depth finders. Wollaston Lake Lodge offers both quantity and quality of fish. The guides are versed at spin, casting or fly fishing and will strive to put you onto productive fishing grounds. Northern pike occupy about 70% of the total catch of visiting anglers to Wollaston. Walleye are the next most common species taken at 15%. Lake trout comprise 10% of the total catch, while Arctic grayling make up the final 5%. As far as pike are concerned, the key is to search for protected bays that possess a bottom composition of sand, sand-muck or sand-rock. These bays heat up faster and concentrate the pike. Bays with lily pad patches will be more productive than barren, sandy bottom areas. A small feeder creek entering these protected bays will further increase the number of shallow migrating pike as well. A favored bait for northern pike is a No.5 Mepps spinner (black bucktail with either chrome or gold blades), retrieved fast over and around vegetation, rocks, points, deeper sandy flats and wood cover. Walleye take spinners such as the Mepps, as well as plastic curly-tailed grubs.

This is usually a time when anglers target trophy pike marauding the shallow bays, which are warming from the early summer sunlight. Fishing remains extremely productive through the end of August when the camp closes for the season.
