You can't mention the word 'fishing' in Saskatchewan without people thinking fondly about Nipawin and Tobin Lake.
Amongst several honorable designations, Tobin Lake was recently recognized as "Western Canada's 3rd Greatest Fishery" by Western Sportsman Magazine, and rightfully so. The Nipawin/Tobin Lake waterway is the lake that makes fishing in Northern Saskatchewan so famous. Tobin Lake is naturally self sustaining (no hatchery fish here) and yields an abundance of excellent fishing with plenty of opportunities to land a monster Northern Pike or Trophy Walleye.
Trimmed by the river portion of Tobin Lake with access to Codette Lake only minutes away, Nipawin is a well established fishing, camping and golfing vacation destination the whole family will approve of.
Tobin Lake boasts some of the best tasting, cleanest, safest fresh water fish meat in North America, however mercury advisories do exist. Pregnant women, children and those who regularly consume fish should avoid/limit eating
Pickerel over 50cm (19.5") Perch over 30cm (12") and Pike over 80cm (31.5").
