Canada pike fishing at Canada's legendary Wollaston Lake always ranks near the top of the list for heart stopping, earth shaking fishing action. This lake, which has been a catch & release lake for close to 20 years, is producing consistent catches of trophy pike in the 45 to 50 inch class. We're also seeing fantastic numbers of pike in the 32" to 36" inch range; meaning the coming years will be even better. Canada pike fishing and Wollaston Lake are synonymous with trophy northern pike. Wollaston Lake is widely believed to be the #1 trophy pike fishery in Canada — a reputation that's well deserved, since the lake has been providing unparalleled pike fishing excitement for decades. However, what sometimes gets lost in all the pike mania is the fact that Wollaston also offers abundant lake trout, walleye and Arctic grayling fishing.
Situated in a sheltered, pristine bay along the southwest shore of Wollaston Lake, Minor Bay Lodge puts its guests in the heart of fast paced pike fishing. Ample opportunities prevail for you to hook into a 40 to 50 plus inch trophy pike while being pampered with first-class food and accommodations. We've all heard, and perhaps told, stories of the one that got away? With Gage Outdoor Expeditions, put your imagination to rest. You'll return home with stories and photos of all the trophy fish you landed! Covering over 800 square miles in northern Saskatchewan, Wollaston Lake is noted for its exceptional northern pike and lake trout fishing. Anglers have caught and released monster pike up to 52 inches in length and weighing over 30 lbs! In addition to trophy-worthy pike and lake trout, Wollaston offers our guests the opportunity to angle for walleye, whitefish, and the beautiful Arctic grayling. At Wollaston Lake, the fishing is good, the air is clean and the opportunities are endless.
The main lodge & lounge offer breathtaking views of Minor Bay on Wollaston lake. After a delicious meal in our spacious dining room enjoy a cocktail on the screened in veranda and watch the sun set over the lake. The lodge has an intimate feel as we never have more than 18 clients in camp at one time and the lodge can often be reserved exclusively for larger groups. The lodge cabins are modern, private and nicely updated. Every cabin is equipped with its own thermostat with controlled electric heater, allowing guests to relax in comfort. Each cabin suite has a private bathroom and space for storing your gear. When the day is done, enjoy a relaxing lakeside sauna with your group. It doesn’t get any better than this!
The evenings start in the lounge where our Red Seal chef offers guests a different selection of innovative hors d’oeuvres to enjoy with a cocktail or glass of wine. Dinner is an exciting time at the lodge as long days of fishing tend to create hearty appetites. The first course is home-made soup or salad, followed by the main course of options such as fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs or slow-cooked prime rib roast. If you saved room, the desserts are “to-die-for” made from scratch by our assistant chef. ENJOY SHORE LUNCH EACH DAY OF COURSE!
Your day begins around 6:00 a.m., after a hot breakfast, you'll depart for the lake. Depending on the weather and your preference — monster pike, trophy lake trout, walleye or Arctic grayling — your guide will set the course and agenda for the day. After a full day of fishing, guests return to the lodge to unwind and share stories of the day. Happy hour begins at 5:30 p.m., followed by a delicious, gourmet dinner at 7:00. After dinner, guests are invited to relax in the lounge until 11:00, when the lodge closes to prepare for the next day's adventure.What to Bring Travel Information Purchase Fishing License Registration Local Weather
