NORTHERN PIKE FISHING WITH GWN WILDERNESS LODGES
Over time, the words northern pike fishing and Canadian wilderness have become somewhat synonymous. Every year, thousands of anglers from North America and abroad journey to the “great white north” to immerse themselves in the pristine, unscathed beauty offered by the sprawling forests, prairies, and waterways that exemplify this great nation. As you can imagine, there are a plethora of fishing lodges in Canada, but what separates Great White North Wilderness Lodges from the rest of the pack are their knowledgeable Canada fishing guides, contemporary accommodations, and remote locations.
WHERE TO FISH FOR NORTHERN PIKE IN CANADA
Finding northern pike in Canada isn’t overly burdensome. The relatively cold temperatures of Canada’s lakes, streams, and rivers, coupled with thoughtful conservation practices, means that even reasonably shallow waters capable of producing rather large northern pike over 40 inches and above 20 pounds. Unfortunately, the finding doesn’t equate to catching, so many of our visitors rely on Canada fishing guides to show them the way. Great White North has two stunning full-service, American-Plan lodges that offer amazing Canada fishing vacations.
MINOR BAY LODGE
Located on the legendary Wollaston Lake, Saskatchewan, Minor Bay Lodge is a fly-in fishing paradise. Considered one of the best northern pike fisheries in the world, Wollaston Lake boasts over 2,500 miles of shoreline and nearly 400 islands that make excellent habitat for the coveted species. Surrounded by seemingly endless Canadian wilderness, you’re more likely to run into a bear or moose than another human. Besides northern pike, Wollaston Lake also produces marvellous walleye, lake trout, and Arctic grayling.
SLIPPERY WINDS WILDERNESS LODGE
For those of you seeking little more diversity, look no further than Slippery Winds Wilderness Lodge. Located just northwest of Fort Frances, ON, on the isthmus between Yoke and Straw Lakes, Slippery Winds is nestled within the heart of Ontario’s Sunset Country region and offers guests six lakes and six species. While northern pike has proven to be some of the most exciting fish to target, you’ll also be able to go after trophy-quality walleye, large and smallmouth bass, lake trout, and the elusive muskellunge. Due to it’s proximity to the U.S.-Canadian border, it is considered a premier destination for our southern neighbours.
