You may be familiar with their names—northern pike, lake trout, arctic grayling, and walleye—but you’ll be shocked by their size. Home to some of the world’s largest and best tasting freshwater fish, Reindeer Lake is the best lake in Saskatchewan. This glacial lake has 5,700 miles of shoreline, so anglers are delighted by the endless supply of weeds, which are the ideal habitat for fish. Due to the colder waters, fish live longer in Reindeer lake and grow to legendary sizes. In the fall, temperatures drop slightly, so fish swim closer to the surface. Arctic Lodges is centrally located on an isolated island, so you can explore new parts of the lake each day while fishing in Saskatchewan.
Let’s review the best tasting freshwater fish before you book your Canada fishing trip.
Of course, Reindeer Lake holds several other species of fish, but these 4 are the most popular Canadian fish you’ll find while fishing in Saskatchewan.
