Discover the Beauty of Nature Through Sport Fishing


Enjoy Sport Fishing on Reindeer Lake, Saskatchewan

Reindeer Lake is noted for providing a variety of fishing activities. The lake is about 170 miles long and covers an area of nearly 2,500 square miles.

One of our prime Lake Trout areas is Deep Bay, which is a body of water that remains cold long after the heat has driven trout down to unreachable depths in most other lakes. It is one of the world's largest ancient meteorite craters, and runs more than 700 feet deep and 6 miles across. 

You can fish the elusive Arctic Grayling in Deep Bay. These scrappy little fighters that are seldom found in still water offer a real challenge to the expert fisherman. 

Meanwhile, Northern Pike, which many of them are about the size of a trophy, abound in the many bays and inlets along the shoreline. You may also connect with Walleye, while for the fly fisherman or ultra-light fan, there is Whitefish.

We have day-use sites on Marchand and Fafard Lakes that are accessible by boat from Nordic Lodge. Marchand will give you lots of action for Northern, while Fafard is known for Walleye.

Reindeer Lake has been designated a Catch and Release 1 lake, which is the largest C&R 1 lake in Saskatchewan. These reduced limits should ensure that the superb fishing you enjoy today will still be available for future generations and future fishing trips.

Lake Trout

In early June, right after the ice is out, Lake Trout can be found in shallower waters. By July, once the water starts to warm up, Lake Trout will move to deeper water as deep as 70 feet. They can be caught using downriggers and deep divers.

Lake Trout comes back up to shallower waters during the middle of September when temperatures start to cool off. It feeds and can be fished by trolling or casting. They prefer a water temperature around 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Northern Pike

The pikes are in shallow depths sunning themselves during early June, right after the ice is out. Once the weeds start to grow in the latter part of June, they are found lying amongst them.

In July and early August, northern pikes have moved to deeper water where the weed growth is more abundant. The vast majority of the trophy-sized pikes that are caught at our lodge are caught throughout August. Once the lake cools off on early September, they move back to shallower waters.

Arctic Grayling

Seldom found in still water, these scrappy little fighters offer a real challenge to the expert fisherman. The best time of year to catch Arctic Grayling is during the warm days of summer after a good insect hatch.


In early June, you may find Walleye in some of the bays on Reindeer Lake. During the later part of summer, they are commonly found below White Sand Damn on Fafard Lake.


Nordic Lodge runs 16.5-foot Alumarine boats that are known for their stability and comfort. They are equipped with 25-horsepower or 30-horsepower Yamaha motors, flat wood floors and swivel seating. Fifty liters of gas per day will be provided. We also offer paddles, fish tubs, dip nets and Ministry of Transport (MOT)-approved personal flotation devices.
