Overview

Awesome trophy size fish is the main reason that people come to Milton Lake Lodge. Nice boats, professional guides and quality fishing gear add to the attraction.
Lakes at this latitude of Northern Saskatchewan are known to produce large numbers of huge fish.

All of our waters have had very little fishing pressure in their history. The main lodge has only operated for 10 short seasons, before this the waters were virtually untouched by anglers and some of our lakes have never yet even been test fished! This allows for an abundance of trophy sized fish in our crystal clear waters. Last season one of our guests reeled in a 22 lb lake trout while standing on the dock waiting to go out in the morning. No long boat rides are needed for excellent angling of northern pike, lake trout or arctic grayling. We ensure great fishing for future generations by practicing catch and release with safe handling procedures, being conservation wise, and appreciating the environment that surrounds us.

Any level of experience is fine, our guides will be happy to teach you the basics using quality fishing gear that is provided for no charge at the main lodge.
Whether you enjoy casting light gear for Arctic Grayling in the cold waters of the river, watching the explosion of a monster Pike crush your top water lure, or feeling the thud of a hook set into a giant lake trout, Milton Lake Lodge and Outposts have what you are looking for.

Our group of six lakes and four rivers are situated on the southern edge of the Taiga Eco Region and within the Canadian Shield. The oldest rocks in the world are found here, dating back to more than four billion years. Centuries ago, the receding glaciers carved out deep holes and crevices that are our beautiful clear water lakes of today. These lakes are home to huge fish that lurk in the many bays, coves or deep holes.

Milton Lake with 150 foot deep holes is 11 km long and 9 km wide. This big wide open lake has sandy beaches, rocky areas with lots of underwater structure and many sheltered bays that provide great fishing no matter what the weather conditions are. The biggest Pike caught here to date was 35lbs and Lake Trout to just over 50lbs. Where the Porcupine River flows in and out of the lake the arctic grayling are abundant.

Fly Fishing

We sight-fish huge northern pike in the shallows most of the season at Milton Lake lodge. These opportunities prove to be ideal for fly-fishing. Seeing these monsters swirl and hit your fly is among the most exciting methods of fishing that you will ever experience.

Finessing arctic grayling in one of our rivers can also prove to be a great way to spend a day. Lake trout are caught on the fly in spring and fall when they are located in shallow water.

Our experienced fly-fishing guides and huge casting decks make fly fishing comfortable and enjoyable. Fly fishing lessons and fly fishing gear (Sage fly-fishing rods and reels as well as Simms waders and boots) are both available at no extra cost.

What makes us unique:

  1. The fishing is phenomenal, with a lake to yourself filled with trophy northern pike and lake trout each two guys would be in their own boat with a professional guide and top of the line equipment to use. You don’t need to bring anything but your clothes, we will provide everything you need down to the lures whether you prefer bait casters, spinning or fly fishing.
