Located in Northern Saskatchewan on the fringe of the Canadian Shield, an area known as the Athabasca Sand Basin, Cree Lake is 50 miles long by 30 miles wide; has 1100 miles of shoreline; and contains over 500 islands, some of which are large enough to sustain their own lakes. The unique topography of Cree Lake creates a natural shield on wind days guaranteeing you won't be stuck on shore when you want to be fishing.

Our record size northern pike, lake trout, walleye, and arctic grayling are big, plentiful, and they're fighters as only the cold, crystal clean waters of Northern Saskatchewan can provide. Whether you are a conventional angler or a fly fisherman, a day on Cree lake is a thrill of a lifetime. An experience our guests retun for year after year. There is no need for fly-outs or outpost camps at Cree Lake Lodge because the best of all worlds lays at your doorstep.

Cree Lake Fishing Lodge was founded in 1951 by three diverse and very colorful northern fur trappers, Canada's equivalent to the famous mountain men of American lore, who first ventured into this remote and untamed land in the early '30's. When Vern and I first purchased the Lodge in 1976 one of the founders, Martin Engman, still lived in the area. Martin never lost his sense of humor or his knack for tell a great story and we spent many wonderful hours enthralled with the adventures of his life. His and his partner's legacies live on in the Lodge and the magic spun by the retelling of his tales. A tiny church built by Martin still stands today as it did many years ago when services were held within its log walls for the few locals who once lived at Cree Lake. All of our guests enjoy taking a step back in time and visiting this precious historic site.

In 1976, when we first landing on Cree Lake's shore neither Vern nor I had ever so much as visited a wilderness fishing camp before let alone hold prior experience in the outfitting industry. Many have credited the unique quality of Cree Lake Lodge to our initial ignorance for not knowing how things were "suppose" to be done we set our own standards. Then, as today, our guests were not clients but valued friends visiting our home. Meals weren't prepared on a budget; they were created in our kitchen as fare worthy of esteemed company. And the services offered weren't based on a bottom line, but on what we considered acceptable hospitality. Our guests were the most important people we knew and our responsiblity for their happiness and the success of their time with us was not taken lightly. Today we still treasure the honor of their company on an individual basis.

Cree Lake Fishing Lodge consists of twenty-two buildings, six of which are designated for guest accomodation. Our guest cabins are rustic in keeping with the special atmosphere of Cree Lake, but at the same time they are cozy, comfortable, and well maintained. Each is equipped with a full bath, good quality single box spring and mattress beds, a personal coffee maker, and a deck which faces the lake front furnishing a perfect perch from which to view the breathtaking wilderness scenery. A maid service provides clean linens and housekeeping daily. Electricity is supplied around the clock.

Though guest cabins are private, we do mix our sportsman at the dinner table for this is where great adventures are shared and wonderful friendships are born or renewed. Our menu is renowned for both its quality and quantity. All of the dishes in our cuisine, from the pre-dinner cocktail hors d'oeuvres to the delectible mouth watering desserts, have been carefully selected and are personally prepared in our kitchen. We have received an excellent report from the board of health for each year we've been in operation.

Though Cree Lake is capable of a greater capacity, we never accept more than 16 guests at one time to ensure personal service. Preferences are noted and are automatically supplied during subsequent visits.

When listing the virtues of Cree Lake Fishing Lodge it's easy to include the superior fishing and hunting, the excellent accommodations and services, the well-maintained equipment, and the pure untouched beauty of the Canadian wilderness but an equally important factor in our ability to run a first class camp is the wonderful people who work with us. From our housekeeping staff to our guides all are industrious, dependable, courteous, and professional. Some guests have been overheard to comment our staff are so dedicated you would think they owned the Lodge.

Besides being our resident genius and jack of all trades, Vern is a pilot with nearly thirty years of accident free bush flying experience. A float plane is kept at the Lodge for medical emergencies.

Whether you are seeking respite from a hectic schedule; are an avid sports fan looking for a great adventure; or wish to spend quality time with family, friends, and colleagues the staff of Cree Lake Lodge are there to assist your "trip of a lifetime".

Cree Lake is approximately 80km (50 miles) by 50km (about 30 miles) wide with about 1800km (1100 miles) of shoreline. It contains over 500 islands many large enough to sustain their own lakes. The fine white sand lake-bottom is a natural filter that produces crystalline waters. Long beautiful beaches are nestled by rolling hills treed with birch and pine. Step ashore and the sensation that no man has been here before washes over you. This is oftentimes true. Caribou moss is the predominant ground-cover with no forest undergrowth. This makes for easy hiking and excellent wilderness explorations.

Cree Lake Fishing Lodge hosts Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Walleye, and Arctic Grayling. Our fish are large, plentiful, and fighters as only the cold clear waters of the north can provide. Although larger fish have been seen or lost, our record catches to date boast: Northern Pike at 39 lbs. (17.1 kg.), Lake Trout at 41 lbs. (18.5 kg.), Arctic Grayling at 4 lbs. (1.8 kg.), and Walleye at 6 lbs. (2.7 kg.). Open water fly fishing has become very popular and a true challenge with our large Northerns. Cree River, with it's beautiful rapids, also provides a perfect setting.
