Guest with Fish at Athabasca Fishing Lodges

Shane,  I know you have some guests in camp after a week off. I just want to thank you for the great week we spent with you and the team. You treated us like family which is high praise. I hope to be back next year. The awesome fishing helped too. I’m not sure that I will ever have a better week of fishing 🎣 but I can hope cheers 🍻.



Guest with Fish at Athabasca Fishing Lodges

I want to thank you for all your help with our trip last week to Athabasca!  We had a great time and Shane and his team did a super job for us!  I would like to book for next year.



Athabasca Fishing Lodge Cabins

Hard to say anything other than bravo for the great work you’re doing to improve the camp, and for the fantastic team you’ve assembled onsite led by Shane. Still the same great fishing we’ve come to expect, but the hospitality was 10x better than prior years. Can’t wait until next year!!



Group arrival to Athabasca Fishing Lodges
Dear Shane, Christine, and Camp Staff:
I speak for all the guys when I say thank you very much for making our visit extraordinary!
Every aspect of the trip was great - the fishing, the hospitality, the meals, boats, and guides.  I personally thank Christine for her kindness, responsiveness, knowledge, and can-do attitude in making my job as coordinator as efficient and easy as it could be.
We are all looking forward to July 8th to July 15th next year.  I believe you have deposits for each of this years' fishermen.


Fishing from the boat

By far the best fishing trip we’ve been on. Shane and his crew were absolutely welcoming and knowledgeable to enhance our stay. The fishing was amazing! So much so, we booked for next year for our son, before his deployment. A treat for my son before he heads back out to sea. Once again, Your place is heaven on earth.

Thank You for a dream come true. You made a real-life fish tale!!!!!!! See you next yr!!!!



Thank you once again for your hospitality. Dan and I had a great time staying in your lodge and fishing with our new friends. It was a wonderful experience, especially for me, who is a first timer in fishing.

Cliff, and Stella, and your entire team--Thank you! We had a wonderful trip and you all were a part of that. Thanks for the great hospitality, excellent food, and use of the lodge in the evenings for our card games.



Team "Hooked Soul" had an epic day catching well over 100 fish. Nice Walleye, Pike, and Lake Trout including these 2 monsters, both 46 inches long. 46" laker, 46" pike, 45 total walleye, 50 pike in one bay and 20 in the next, on and on and on. Over 125 fish in one day between me and my dad.



I fished at Athabasca Fishing Lodge-- Otherside Bay from June 25 to July 2, 2017. I boated & released about 240 Northern Pike, 28 were more thatn 40" & largest were 46 & 47". Tom, boat partner, did about the same-- 56 Trophy Northerners-- a Great Fishing experience. I have fished all over Canada & North West Territories for 45 years. The last 10 years I fished at Athabasca Fishing Lodge, where the fishing has been the best-- consistent, exceptional trophy fishing for Northern Pike, Lake Trout & Walleye-- and a top notch, first class memorable experience hosted by Cliff & Stella, their guides & staff.



I wanted to drop you a not and tell you again how much fun Carl, Ron and I had at your place. I assume it feels bittersweet to close up in the next week or so for the last time. I went back and looked to see when I thought my first visit with my father-in-law, Carl Lee occurred.  The best I can tell, it happened in 1991 but I am not sure. I know the first couple of visits the Beaver was the transportation. There are so many good memories, and hopefully, the changes the new owner makes will only enhance what has become a very special place for my son and myself.

While I was out fished by my crew, the camaraderie was terrific. I'm attaching some fishing photos for the website. Notice there are none of me. Always the good host. I made sure that my brother-in-law and son caught bigger and more fish than I did, I need to fix that!

The ability to get a fly-out/in was so much appreciated. My brother-in-law, Ron, had so much fun talking flying with you.
