Northern Alberta Fishing Lodges and Family Resorts
Alberta Lodges and Resorts Vacations
Northern Alberta family lodges and fishing resorts vacations..

The northern half of the province, Alberta's outback, is truly untamed. Winding through the acres of wilderness are some of the best and safest highways in the world, connecting little pockets of civilization where the spirit of explorers, pioneers, trappers and hunters still lives on.

Eco tourists, photographers, hunters, and fishermen are always welcomed in Northern Alberta. Enjoy our beautiful scenery, unspoiled valleys, rivers and creeks and good fresh air to breathe! There's Walleye and Northern Pike in our rivers, wild big game animals including bears, moose, deer and elk which roam the land. There are also many near extinct species of birds not to mention our abundant migratory and upland birds to photograph.

Kayak the roaring rapids of the Athabasca, or canoe the intricate system of lakes and rivers that take you into the vastness of Alberta's North. Explore the complex latticework of trails and cuts that make this region one of the world's best all-terrain vehicle destinations

Pawistik Lodge

Activities: Fishing, Boating, Hiking, Family,

Located on the historic Sturgeon Weir River, Pawistik Lodge guests experience the kind of fishing normally reserved for exclusive fly-in trips to Canada's far north. Trophy northerns are the norm, as well as amazing catches of walleye throughout the whole system of 200 miles of rivers and lakes. We have a rainbow trout lake which sees regular catches over 8 pounds. Although the Sturgeon Weir is a major Northern Shield river, at some points almost a mile in width, rapids both north and south of the lodge make the river your private preserve. For your convenience, we park our boats above and below the rapids - in other words, no portaging! Our catch and release policy ensures that a large fish caught in the system lives to get even bigger. Of course, you can keep your limit of fish for the table. Most of our motors are new l5 h.p. units, as well as new 14 foot aluminum boats.

All our guests are housed in seven modern LHK cabins of various sizes from three to twelve persons. All cabins have electric fridges and stoves, and all the utensils you need. Running water is located just outside each door, and there is a fully modern washroom facility close to your cabin. Our central firepit area is a great place to barbecue, or to meet fellow guests beside a roaring fire after the day's fishing is done. The main lodge consists of a coffee shop, confectionery, and tackle shop.

Canoe Outfitting and Trips: There are over 20 Saskatchewan registered canoe routes that either start, finish, or intersect with the river and Pawistik. Make the lodge your home base as you explore the system. We offer either fully catered or self catered canoe tours, complete with all equipment.

If you're flying into Pawistik, there is a well maintained gravel airstrip seven miles from the lodge, and Flin Flon airport for scheduled flights is about 45 minutes away. We'll be there in the lodge van to pick you up. The border area has a population of over 10,000, and Flin Flon's rocky streets, with its mining past, are worth a visit. There is a history and mining museum, and art galleries featuring northern and native artists. Mine tours are also available.

Winefred Lake Lodge

Winefred Lake is situated in the heart of Alberta's boreal forest, 185 km (70 miles) southeast of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Whether you're a seasoned outdoor enthusiast with a passion for world-class fishing and hunting, or if you're just looking for time away from a hectic lifestyle, Winefred Lake Lodge is an ideal location to enjoy an Alberta wilderness experience. Winefred Lake boasts some of the finest trophy fishing in Alberta, consistently producing large Northern Pike and Walleye. Guests are provided with 16' aluminium boats equipped with new 9.9 horsepower motors; this combination is perfect for Winefred Lake. The lake itself is 36 km long (14 miles) and 23 km (9 miles) wide giving you plenty of room to "hook the big one!"

We have 4 rooms attached to the main lodge, each of which accommodates 4 people, with a private bathroom and shower in each unit. Or if you prefer, we have self-contained cabins on site. Two of the cabins have 3 bedrooms, while one has two bedrooms. The cabins have fridge, stove, cooking utensils, gas bar-b-que and everything else you would expect.

While initially coming to fish, hunt or bird watch, after a few days, it is not uncommon to find guests reading a good book on the expansive deck or relaxing in our outdoor hot tub.Winefred Lake Lodge is accessible by either road or air. If you plan to drive to the lodge we do recommend that you have a reliable 4-wheel drive vehicle. Should you need to, rentals are available from all the major rent-a-car companies.
During the winter season, many guests use our lodge as a base for snowmobiling along the shoreline, across the lake or on the regional trail network.
