The lake has held 2 WORLD records to date including a 63 lb. Lake Trout caught minutes from the lodge

Lake Athapapuskow consists of three connected bodies of water, “Big Athapap” to the south, “Little Athapap” in the middle, and the “North Arm”. Only 2 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi) of the lake, at the very west end of Big Athapap, is in Saskatchewan; the remaining 267 square kilometres (103 sq mi) of the lake is in Manitoba.


Athapapuskow Lake is known for its size, depth, crystal clear water and many reefs, perfect conditions for Lake Trout to thrive 

Lake Trout can be found in both Big Athapap (the south end of the lake) and also Little Athtapap (the middle portion of the lake)

A 63 lb. giant was caught in Little Athapap by Leone Grayson in 1930 and stood as the World record at the time. There is a memorial cairn at the Baker’s Narrows campground recognizing this feat


Northern Pike are abundant in Athapapuskow Lake. Trolling big spoons around one of the five hundred islands or bait-casting in a secluded bay, the opportunities will be numerous for pike enthusiasts

Early in the season Northern Pike can be found in very shallow water near their spawning areas, sunning themselves and feeding on bait fish

Northern Pike in the forty to forty-five inch range are not uncommon


In the spring while the water is still cold you can find walleye “stacked up” in bays and rocky points where there is moving water, they can usually be found in six to ten feet of water

You can fish for these by trolling a bottom bouncer with a walleye spinner or casting a crank-bait 

Many Walleye in the twenty-eight to thirty two inch size (and larger) are caught each summer
