This is part two of our ultimate northern pike fishing experience.
We start off our second show with some of the great trout fishing that Phelps Lake has to offer. We fish in 90-100 feet of water, using blade baits and Kalin’s plastics. They have caught fish up to 40 pounds, so we are very excited to see what we can lure in.
This is the one of the most unique shows and locations we have ever traveled to. We talked with our friend, Pete Maina, about a place we could go to catch 20+ pound pike. Pete told us about a place that he’s been to in the past, Phelps Lake in Northern Saskatchewan.
The following is an excerpt from the website of Wolf Bay Lodge, which is the exclusive lodge on this massive lake:
“Journey to the remote Northern Canadian Phelps Lake in the beautiful “Land of the Living Skies,” and take home a memory that will last a lifetime. Fly via Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to Points North where a float plane will whisk you over the Canadian wilderness to Phelps Lake. Wolf Bay Lodge is the lone occupancy on Phelps Lake with no commercial fishing or added fishing pressures. Phelps Lake has never been commercially fished and just recently opened up to angling in the 1990’s.
Located on the edge of the Canadian Shield this glacier formed 13,500 hectare lake is approximately 30 miles long by 6 miles wide with fantastic structure. Rock outcroppings and sand eskers adorn the lakes awe-inspiring scenery. It is dappled by countless islands and supported by numerous tributaries; Phelps Lake provides superb habitat for the fish residents.
Wolf Bay Lodge also has exclusive day use of some of the surrounding lakes. Many of the bays and channels of these lakes are untouched and have never seen a boat let alone had a lure cast upon the water. MacDonald Lake to the North East of Phelps lake is a 5 mile long lake that has resident Pike and Lake Trout fishing. Nisku Lake to the East of Phelps is a larger body of water. Edwards and Bickerton Lakes are to the South East of Phelps lake and combined stretch an additional 12 miles. Jada lake is in the extreme South part of Phelps lake and has deep moving water with Lake trout.
This is a chance opportunity to explore uncharted waters and to cast a line upon virgin waters. The fish on Phelps Lake and the surrounding lakes are plentiful and vigorous, and are ready to strike at any oncoming lures.”
We couldn’t have said it any better.
