My son and I traveled to Arctic Lodges for a fishing trip in late July. The accommodations and cuisine were everything we hoped to find. The staff was remarkably friendly and attentive. Our guide Zach was nothing short of incredible! He was responsive to our goals and so knowledgeable of lake I am in awe. He was absolutely tenacious when it came to finding fish - changing locations, presentation, and tackle with perfection. My son boated six trophy pike in three and a half days and we were never without action. I have never had a finer guide - period. And holy cow can that man cook a shore lunch! We will never forget our trip.
This lodge has continued to be first class in its fishing, it’s guides, it’s food and the hospitality and service. Very comfortable feeling and social staff make for a great stay. The lodge itself is located on a beautiful remote property that keeps your phone camera out of your pocket. And not to mention the best fishing that myself and my family have ever experienced in Canada, especially the Northern Pike. The Shore lunch experiences were also one of the best of the trip. Per usual, see you all soon!
My father and I just finished up our fishing trip here and it was one a lifetime. Kelly and Andrea are the best along with their entire staff (the guides, staff, chef, and maintenance crew). We had the good fortune of having Greg as our guide and he was excellent, incredible fishing and a ton of laughs (also beyond great shore shore lunches). As a bonus, we were lucky enough to see a Woodland Caribou swimming and then run out of the water to shore while we were moving fishing spots. Everything here is top tier; the fishing, meals, lodging, scenery/overall nature, and most importantly, the people - all of them were incredible. We will never forget this trip and hope to be fortunate enough to come back in the near future. Thanks again to everyone at Arctic Lodges for such an incredible overall experience!…
Once again our group had a spectacular fishing, lodging and outdoor experience with Andrea, Kelly, Simon and their entire team. The guides were fantastic. Our group of 11 had each person land at least one trophy size (40 inches plus) northern pike. We all caught pike, lake trout, walleye and several landed grayling as well. The accommodations were excellent, the food superb and creative and a happy staff at all times. After so many years of coming here, it is no wonder we’ll be back again next year. Thanks so much Andrea and Kelly!!
I just finished the best fishing experience of my life. Andrea and Kelly run an incredible operation and everything that they provide is nothing less than FIRST CLASS!. The fishing is incredible, the food both plentiful and delicious and their entire staff especially their guides were all best in class. I cannot wait to get back up there again. I have been going to fishing and hunting lodges since 1973 and this was by far the best operation that I have ever seen.
This was my second year at the lodge. Last year I came with my son and we had an awesome time, so we rebooked for 2022. This year my son could not make it due to work so I was joined by a buddy who was new to fishing. Once again staff and owners were professional and well organized. The overall service was superb and food was excellent. Our accommodations were comfortable and cleaned every day. Our guide was very patient and personable while providing helpful tips for catching numerous big fish. The rental gear was also very good and well maintained. I highly recommend this lodge if you want to get away efficiently thanks to the direct flight from Saskatoon to the lodge and also want to experience great fishing (spin, fly, trolling, etc) for pike, trout, grayling and walleye regardless of your fishing expertise. My buddy loved the experience so much he plans to come next year with his son. I am also booked for 2023. If interested, I suggest you contact them early to secure preferred dates. …
Kelly and Andrea, the lodge staff and guides do a fantastic job of making every guest feel important. The fishing is perfect for any level of fishing experience . If you value life experiences over things, then I highly recommend a trip to Arctic Lodges.
My son and I had the opportunity to spend 4 days at the lodge. It was a great escape from our current crazy times and a way to reconnect with family and nature. Arctic Lodge did not disappoint. Perfectly balanced accommodations (rustic and function), 5 star meals, top notch boats and guides and ownership and staff 100% focused on creating a wonderful experience. A big thank you to Kelly, Andrea and the entire staff for a great trip. A special thanks to Zach for putting us on fish and incredible shore lunches. We will be back.
Great 4 day fishing getaway. No complaints about anything. The short plane ride (1:20) from Saskatoon meant you got up there in time for breakfast and then they got you out on the water ASAP to start fishing. Owners, staff, the fishing guides were all fantastic and super friendly. Cabins were clean and cozy and each had their own bathroom with a shower. Fishing was good (July 10-14) but we would likely try to go back in June sometime. Food… omg… the food. Chef Ryan can cook!! For me (woman) it was way too much at each meal. I had to ask for less. But it was ALL so good!! The boats they use to take you out are the best ones out there. This was our 3rd remote fishing lodge vacation and the boats here surpassed the other lodges by miles. They were new, comfortable, felt very safe and they had a big deck in the front to stand and cast. All boats / guides had a gps locator so the owners knew where all their boats / clients were at any given time. It’s a BIG lake. Would we do it again… you bet.…
We had an excellent time at Arctic Lodges. The fishing was excellent, the guides were great, and the food was outstanding. Andrea and Kelly are great hosts and the team at the Lodge works hard to ensure everyone is well looked after and has a good time. I'm looking forward to going back very soon.
