Plan Your Stay
Tazin Lake Lodge is designed to accommodate sixteen guests at a time along with service personnel during your stay. What does that mean to you?
Friendly, personal service from the entire Tazin Team, incredible fishing and memories that will last a lifetime.
Our experienced guides do not fish because they are here to serve you, plus they prepare one of the finest shore lunches you will find anywhere in Canada.
Tazin is a catch and release lake, with the exception of fish caught for shore lunch. Therefore we require the use of barbless hooks to ensure great fishing for generations to come.

There are many other manufacturers of spoons and if you have one you particularly like, you should include these also. These trailers should also be used on Johnson Silver Minnows.

These come in ½ oz. to 1 1./2 oz. and can be used for northern pike and lake trout. There are larger ones that can be used for pike. Once again, these come in a variety of colors and are available in most tackle shops. You can order rattletrap lures at www.RattletrapLures.com. We recommend the 1 ½ oz. size.. If you would like to fish top water, any large top water bait such as Husky Jerk, Zara Spook or large Poppers will suffice. Once again, there are a lot of stick baits and crank baits on the market and if you have a particular favorite, you should use it.
If you wish to fish for lake trout with jigs, you will need to bring 1 ½ oz. jigs in a variety of colors – green & gold, red & white, white & blue and silver and blue. You can also catch lake trout with jigging spoons of the same weight (1 1/2 oz.).
There are a variety of new soft plastic baits made by major manufacturers. These need to be at least in the 6” long variety. One of our favorites is the Banjo Minnow. For pike you need to order a Big Fish Package with includes a 6” and 9” Banjo Minnow. These have to be ordered online at www.Banjominnows.com. These have worked well for many years. They come with a 5/0 curved hook – you will need more than one. These are excellent when fishing in weed beds just under the surface of the water. Once again, any favorite soft plastic bait can be used.
If you like to fish with a fly rod, nothing is more exciting than catching a big northern pike and lake trout on flies. We recommend an 10-12 weight rod, preferably 10, with an intermediate sinking line and ample backing. You will need a fly line steel leader of 12” for pike. For pike, large flies from 4-8” and a hook size of 1/0-4/0 are recommended. Patterns of large tarpon flies, harper streamers, whistlers, deceivers, large leech patterns are all popular. If you wish to fish top water, poppers and gurglers work great. You, of course, need a floating line for this application. Our fly fishermen consistently catch large pike and lake trout using these methods. This is a very exciting way to fish.
