Wollaston Lake in northern Saskatchewan

Wollaston Lake in northern Saskatchewan. The lake stretches more than 100 miles with depths of 400 feet—perfect conditions for northern pike that reach more than 30 pounds. Because Wollaston is accessible only by plane, you’ll have the place virtually to yourself. In the cool northern summer, the fish stay shallow all summer, so you can fling topwaters, spinnerbaits, shallow-diving plugs, even fly-rod streamers to huge pike you might be able to see lying in the shallows.
“When it comes to monster pike, Saskatchewan’s Wollaston Lake is hard to beat,” says Tim Holschlag, fishing guide and writer whose beat reaches from his Minneapolis home far north into Canada.
