Minor Bay’s 2022 Season
News from Minor Bay Lodge – Check Back Regularly for Current News and Updates
It was great to be back for a full fishing season at Wollaston Lake’s Minor Bay Lodge after a two year hiatus due to COVID travel restrictions. We arrived at the lodge on June 1 st after an uneventful 10+ hour drive north from Saskatoon. The camp had wintered well and there were no surprises when we arrived.
After record-setting high water levels on Wollaston in 2020 and 2021, it was great to see the lake level back to normal, with our main dock about one foot above the lake surface. It was a cool spring in the north and when we arrived at the lodge the ice hadn’t left Minor BBob Britzkeay. We had 10 days before our first guests arrived at the lodge, so we were cautiously optimistic that
the ice would have retreated far enough for our guides to access all our normal fishing spots in the south end of Wollaston. It was touch-and-go, but the ice finally left our bay June 8 th , which allowed our guides to get out on the water and do some test fishing before our first guests of the
season arrived at the lodge.
Our guests enjoyed some excellent catch-and-release multi-species angling this past season. The walleye fishing was exceptionally good with numerous mid-to-high 20-inch walleye caught and released on Wollaston Lake. Some notable catches were:
- Bernie Madej: 49”
- Ryan Price: 49”
- Teresa Volpone: 49” on a fly
- Jack Witt: 37”
- Bob Britzke: 28”
- Jim Valukas: 28”
We are pleased to advise the Canadian government has removed all COVID-19 restrictions for
travellers to Canada, effective October 1, 2022.
