Mecca for Lake Trout and Northern Pike
Tazin Lake Lodge is located in the northwest corner of Saskatchewan, Canada. Just a few miles south of the North West Territories border, Tazin Lake is approximately 40 miles long and 10 to 12 miles wide. With about 20 islands, many secluded bays and 250 miles of beautiful shorelines, there is no end of great new fishing spots. In addition, there are three rivers and several adjoining lakes easily accessed by short portages. All in all this great combination provides excellent trophy trout and pike fishing all season long.
Tazin Lake Lodge
With the enormous shoreline, secluded bays, rivers and lakes, the fishing here at Tazin Lake is remarkable. The list of trophy pike and lake trout are endless and fish over 20 pounds are common. Pike fishing in June to mid July is very good, especially in the shallow bays. The pike are very aggressive and using lures or flies makes for great action!
The best lake trout measured in at 56 pounds, with a 32-inch girth and was caught and released July 30, 2004. Will you be the angler to beat this record?
Tazin Lake Lodge strongly endorses the practice of catch-and-release and the use of barbless hooks. Take measurements and lots of photos and a replica can be built of your trophy. This ensures there will be fishing for future generations.
