In the remote reaches of Canada’s serene northern wilderness lies one of the best freshwater fisheries in the entire world – the incomparable Wollaston Lake. More than 100 miles long and 400 feet deep, Wollaston and its surrounding lakes attract seasoned anglers with vast populations of trophy fish of four distinct species: northern pike, lake trout, arctic grayling and walleye. The Grand Slam of freshwater fishing.
And the magnificence of the fishery is matched only by the beauty and comfort of its premier destination — Wollaston Lake Lodge. Situated at the mouth of the Umpherville River, the Lodge is a spectacular retreat that is fully staffed to meet your highest expectations—and then some. Whatever your needs, you will be treated to an experience that you’d expect from any exceptional destination resort.
Ryan has traveled to Wollaston Lake Lodge to enjoy our fishing for the past 10 years. Over those years he has become a very successful fly fisherman and loves to chase our pike. After seeing this super monster, Ryan, his Dad, and our guide decided to keep after the fish for an hour or more. Several follows and increased interest in the red and yellow bunny fly kept them after the fish. Sighting, casting, loosing track of its location, finding it, presenting the fly, over and over. Even pulling his fly away from a mid-40inch fish who wanted to eat, Ryan persisted and finally got the giant northern pike to commit. After a spectacular fight, the fish was boated and measured, photographed and released. Having another boat nearby to verify the measurement is always helpful when the final measurement was 52″x 21″!!! The great thing about our 3rd fish at 50″ or better, in 19 days of being open, is that each one came from a different part of the lake. At this pace……well who knows what will happen the rest of our season. Congratulations to Ryan on a fish of a lifetime. We are proud to have been a part of it for you.
