Just returned from a trip to BBIL with Dawn and DJ and their wonderful staff. It is a special place on earth, and is made more special by these two and the staff. Everything was so very good. Trip Advisor does not have 10 stars, but they deserve it. Already booked my 2020 trip! Caught three trophy Pike and several Trophy Walleye Many Pike is the upper 30's. Shore lunches are out of this world!
This was my second trip to Black Bear Island Lodge, Thank you to; D. J. & Dawn, Matthew, Trevor and Ron for making this an even more special trip than prior. It was AMAZING to get to be able to fish and catch Large Trophy Pike and Walleye. My arms, shoulders and muscles were sore from all the fish. I swear I gained 5 lbs., from the Awesome food served, and the shore lunches that can not be beat. If you want a fishing trip that you will Never forget go here. The service and experience is second to none. Bring your camera to save those moments.
I had always wanted to fish a Northern Saskatchewan Lake, and it had become a "Bucket List" item. I met D.J.(Owner) at the Saskatoon Sportsman Show and was impressed with the pictures he had displayed, as well as the Value of the planned trip. Once I had decided to actually "Do It " and booked the trip I could not wait. I booked in early September 2018. One I arrived at the Lodge I was greeted warmly and stood back. My bags and gear were taken to my room. Since I was early D.J. had me out fishing with a very experience local guide. We caught a number of fish in a short few hours. As this was my first fishing experience in 25 or more years I lacked knowledge of some basic fishing techniques, i.e. how to ty a basic knot. Not to worry my guide had many, many years of fishing. He did "Everything" he could to help me. I spent 3 days fishing and had sore arms, The Shore lunches were absolutely Awesome. The meals, Breakfast and Suppers were filling and very tasty. Thanks Dawn & staff . The staff went out of there way to make you feel special. I will High recommend Black Bear Island Lodge. I have zero complaints and I plan to Book an other trip. Thank you BBIL see you next year.…

The absolute best place in the world to hunt & Fish!! Once you bear hunt here you will be spoiled! DJ, Dawn and the entire staff go out of their way to make your trip memorable. Just finished my 3rd trip and already booked for next year!
