World Renowned Fishing

Reindeer Lake is located just below the Northwest Territories on the border between northeastern Saskatchewan and northwestern Manitoba, with the majority in Saskatchewan. Placed perfectly in the northern part of the beautiful boreal forest and on the fringe of the arctic circle, Reindeer Lake thrives with vegetation as opposed to being a little bit further north in the barren lands of the arctic with little to no trees and vegetation. Having some of the largest amount of shoreline in the world for a freshwater lake produces endless amounts of weed bed for a healthy underwater habitat…proving Reindeer Lake is one of the most amazing sport fishing lakes in North America!

One of the most important decisions when deciding where to make your next fly-in fishing lodge destination is the LOCATION and the LAKE ITSELF! Choosing these carefully will make a huge difference between a good fishing trip and a great one.
