Reindeer Lake Fishing
Reindeer Lake is one of the most productive lakes in the north because it drains a very large portion of northeast Saskatchewan and northwest Manitoba, consequently the food source for gamefish is very good, better than most of the smaller lakes. The proof is in the fish.
At Reindeer Lake and the surrounding outpost camps, you will find that the Northern Pike, Lake Trout, and Walleyes in our area are very heavy for their length, with the smaller heads and large stocky bodies. The lakes in our area have a large number of islands with many bays and large wood flats for big northern pike. We also have the rocky points and deep waters for the lake trout, which gets up to 760 feet deep.
We have practiced a very strict program at Lawrence Bay Lodge to ensure that the larger fish are all returned to the lake. Typically, all the Northern Pike over 6-7 lbs. and Lake Trout over 6-7 lbs. are returned. I have never seen more big Northern Pike caught than what we have caught and released the last 5 seasons, last year was unbelievable.

Reindeer Lake Northern Pike Fishing
Lawrence Bay Lodge is located on Reindeer Lake Saskatchewan (which to many people the best Northern Pike lake in the world). Reindeer Lake is approximately 180 miles long and 60 miles wide at its widest point.
Reindeer Lake has thousands of islands which make for good structure and these islands along with the mainland make for thousands of bays which harbor huge Northern Pike. Reindeer Lake is simply loaded with large Northern Pike. In 2000 we caught the largest number of big fish ever, Seventy-five percent of our customers caught fish from 18-35 lb. (40-53 inches). We also had a few over 35 lb. All of the fish are alive and well thanks to the people that released those monsters.
Reindeer Lake Walleye Fishing
We also offer unparalleled walleye fishing at Lawrence Bay Lodge. Walleyes can be caught on Reindeer and we also have two float planes to fly out to our day lakes and fish for walleyes also. It is not uncommon to catch 150 walleyes per boat at these lakes, the fishing at these lakes is simply great. The walleyes average in size from 2-6 lb., and we also get some that weigh over 8 lb.
Reindeer Lake Fishing for Lake Trout
The Lake Trout fishing on Reindeer Lake has also been great. Reindeer lake has an averagedepth of over 100 feet and is also loaded with Lake Trout. The average size of our Lake Trout range from 4-18 lb. We also get quit a few between the 20-30 lb. range. The Lake Trout are fished at depths of as shallow as 10 feet and as deep as 70 feet depending upon the time of year you are fishing at Lawrence Bay Lodge, but one thing is for sure, you will know when you latch on to one of these great fighting fish.
We also have fishing for Arctic Grayling or the "Sailfish of the North" as many people call them. The Grayling are noted for the male having a beautiful blue and purple dorsal fin. They are characterized usually by surfacing before they get to the boat. The Grayling Range from 2-4 lb. but fight great (especially on an ultra light fishing Rod) and are considered a great trophy by many because of how beautiful they are.
Reindeer Lake Fly Fishing
If you are a "Fly-Fisherman" let us help you plan a fly-fishing trip that you will never forget. Most fly-fisherman spend most of their time fishing for trout or bass in freshwater and bonefish, snook, permit, or tarpon in salt water. Catching a Northern Pike on a fly is one of the ultimate fly-fishing experiences.
During our past season, we had large numbers of Northern Pike taken in excess of 42 inches. In fact we had one angler that caught 5 trophy Northern Pike, all in excess of 42 inches in one day.
Our experienced guides can help you have an unforgettable fly-fishing experience. This is sight fishing at its best. We are fully prepared to help you plan your trip and we can handle any size group that meets your needs.
Remember that the Northern Pike is a powerful aggressive sport fish. It is recommended that you bring an 8 to 10 weight fly rod. You will need a good reel with an excellent drag mechanism. Leaders should include a wire or hard nylon tippet. Northern Pike like large flies. The Berry Reynolds Pike Fly or a fly called the McMurderer are good examples of the large flies that work well. Colors range from chartreuse to black. We can assist you with tackle and gear selection to meet your needs.
We have had anglers that have fished with us for many years before trying the fly fishing at Lawrence Bay Lodge. Many of these guests have fished all over the world and have found the fly fishing at Lawrence Bay, "exceptional".

We have quality guides, a large hunting area, access to remote lakes by float planes, and a willingness to relocate hunters to assure success.
