In addition to game birds, visiting big game enthusiasts can also enjoy hunting whitetail deer, moose and black bear throughout the area's diverse landscape. The hunting of antelope, mule deer and elk, however, is restricted to Saskatchewan residents only.
As if the world class hunting wasn't enough to get your gears turning, north of the Plain lands lies a wildly vast region primarily made of Canadian Shield. This area in particular is home to some of the world’s best walleye, northern pike and lake trout fishing. Saskatchewan’s popularity as a world-class fishing destination can be attributed to its massive areas of unspoiled, natural beauty, as well as its huge selection of close to 100,000 lakes and rivers. Covering almost 1/3 of the province, Saskatchewan contains more freshwater the British Columbia and Alberta combined!
Many of the top fishing lodges of Saskatchewan are located in the northern half of the province on huge lakes like Athabasca – the fourth largest lake in Canada. A few others with equally great fishing reputations include Cree, Reindeer, Wollaston, Hatchet, La Ronge, and the ever present Churchill River. Keep in mind...This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to world-class fisheries in Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan is the Land of the living Skies. Trust us, every ounce of planning that goes into a trip to this province is worth the effort.
