What to Expect
The Tazin Lake Experience
Tazin Lake Lodge is located on an island in the heart of Tazin Lake. We feature a 5-star chef that serves up a hearty breakfast each morning and delicious meal each evening. Our Chef Steve Driver is a professional facilitator who trains chefs through advanced culinary training programs in Saskatoon in the offseason.
Guests can expect comfortable beds, hot showers, flush toilets and 24-hour electricity in their cabins.
After each breakfast, your guide will make a plan for the day. Fishing hours are 8:30 – 5:30 with one guide per two guests in each boat. Our guides spend their day making sure you’re in the right position to catch fish. Our guides don’t fish while you do.
Internet, tv and satellite phones are available. (More details below)
“In over 10 trips to Canada to different Lodges, a week at a Tazin this summer was the best…The quality(size) of fish was phenomenal. The food in the lodge was prepared by a 5-star chef and the house staff and guides were passionate about pleasing.” – Tom B, New York
