North Saskatchewan Travel Guide
The North Saskatchewan region is a wilderness environment exploring the Precambrian Canadian Shield and Boreal Forest of the region. The region is well documented as a popular rugged wilderness recreation destination in Saskatchewan with an abundance of lakes and rivers for play.
The North Saskatchewan landscape is rugged, remote and wild and is best known as one of Canada's best fishing destinations. There are many fishing lodges, fish camps and fishing resorts located on the lakes and rivers of the north. The popular fish species in the region include walleye, trout, perch, pike, arctic grayling, burbot, suckers and whitefish.
Because of the abundance of lakes and rivers there are many year round activities. In the summer the north is best recognized for its fishing but there is also some popular destinations for canoeing, kayaking, wilderness camping, wildlife watching, hiking and birdwatching.
In the winter months, some of the roads are closed due to winter weather... however the lakes and rivers take on a new form, freezing over, forming ice roads and bridges for snowmobiling and for accessing remote ice fishing destinations.
