Here is a special announcement from Tazin Lake Lodge:
The good news is that our giant lake trout are getting another year to grow bigger.
The bad news is that Tazin Lake Lodge will be closed for the 2020 season.
We’ve all been feeling the pain from the world-wide pandemic and hope this message finds you safe and healthy. Small businesses have been been greatly affected due to the various restrictions and the extended border closure was a big one for us. We’re also located in northern Saskatchewan which had its own closure.
With the extensive preparation that goes into a season at Tazin Lake Lodge, including plane schedules, food orders and everything else necessary to operate on a remote island, we feel that we cannot wait any longer for travel restrictions to be lifted and still provide the high-quality trophy fishing experience that we want our guests to expect.
Guests who had dates booked for 2020 have been rolled over to 2021. Feel free to reach out with any questions and if you would like to get a date booked for 2021, contact us today.
Trophy lake trout and northern pike fishing in Saskatchewan at its finest!
The Tazin Lake Experience
Tazin Lake is a deep, clear water lake that sits in the northwest corner of Saskatchewan. With depths over 400 feet, rocky shorelines, a huge forage base and very little pressure, Tazin Lake is teeming with trophy lake trout. It’s also part of an extensive river system and features giant northern pike as well. Our lake has never seen (and never will) a commercial fishing net, allowing us to properly manage the lake with a catch and release policy. This ensures the giants will be around for generations to come. While the fishing is great, it’s not the only part of a trip to Tazin Lake Lodge. Our camp is built to be smaller to ensure less fishing pressure on the lake and more attention for each guest. “
“I had caught lake trout before…but I wasn’t prepared for the size of the lake trout here!” Steve M., Florida
Our crown jewel is a large island that divides the lake into four quadrants and allows for fishing everyday no matter what the wind is. You’ll never see huge waves on our lake, just huge fish! Not only do we have trophy-sized fish, but if you want action, we’ve got it! Anglers have set out to break the century mark for trout caught in a day and it’s been accomplished many times. Fly fisherman have spent the entire day battling angry pike and stout trout on the fly rod. Your arms will be sore from a day spent going after numbers. We also feature fly-out lakes that have had little-to-no pressure the last ten years!
“This was our second time at Tazin Lake because we enjoyed our first trip so much. It was better than the other camps that we’ve been to by a long shot.” Dr Robert S., Connecticut
While our chef is professionally-trained, he’s also a professional trainer! Steve Driver is well-versed in the art of food preparation and makes sure that none of our guests go hungry. Delicious starters such as salads or soups, main courses like steak, chicken and pork and mouth-watering homemade desserts are prepared daily. The smell of fresh bread floating across the camp will signal that its time for another feast. Our guides also have years of shore lunch experience and a meal of fresh pike or trout on the banks of Tazin are legendary.
“If you want 5-star dining in the wilderness, this is the place to come!” Tim D., Minnesota
Scenery and Wildlife
Tazin Lake is surrounded by the Tazin Lake Upland ecoregion. Ancient, precambrian rocks tower along scenic shorelines giving the landscape a rugged, mountainous appearance. The river systems offer unique opportunities for adventures into the wilderness, not to mention beautiful views from the airplane! The terrain offers exceptional habitat for wildlife and during a trip here, it’s not uncommon to see moose and black bear, along with a variety of waterfowl species including sea ducks. While enjoying a comfortable day on the water, you may also be serenaded by loons and occasionally, the iconic howl from a wolf.
“Wow. The beauty. The lake, the trees and the serenity. It’s really beautiful.” Steve K., Minnesota
Tazin Lake features a rich history from fur trapping to energy development and mineral exploration. Gold and uranium mines are sprinkled throughout the region and in the 1930’s a major project was undertaken by SaskPower to change the direction of the water flow on the lake. An underground tunnel was blasted through the rock and a dam was installed to control the water and alter the course from north to south in order feed water to the Charlot River Power Station.
“The fishing was spectacular! If anyone wants to fish for big lake trout, this is the lake to come to! I already booked a trip to come back!” David L., Minnesota
Trevor Montgomery and Barry Prall took over as owners of the lodge in 2018 and have worked hard adding new amenities to the camp. Our guides have an extensive knowledge of the lake and will go above and beyond to give you an incredible fishing experience. But they’ll also show you the unique features our lake has to offer. For trophy fish, big numbers and a land full of character, Tazin Lake Lodge is a destination that should be on everyone’s list.
