Fishing

Come experience fishing at its best all year round on the famous Pike Lake Chain! Moose Jaw is situated on the shores of Round Lake, the largest in the five-lake chain, which boasts over 2000 acres of water with a varied shoreline, hidden bays, and sheltered inlets. Muskie, Northern, Walleye, Crappie, Perch, Bass, & a variety of Panfish can be found waiting to strike in the cool, coppery waters. With FIVE lakes to fish (Round, Pike, Turner, Amik, & Tucker), you'll be sure to find just the right spot where the fish are biting!

 

Moose Jaw has private docking facilities in a protected bay and a fish cleaning house with running water that is also available near the docks. We have boats available for rent, and live bait for sale (see below for pricing). There is a boat landing adjacent to the resort at the Round Lake Recreation Area. If you are interested in fishing tournaments, Moose Jaw hosts Muskie Mania every August. Also for those who like ice fishing, come brave the cold and catch the big one through the ice - all our cabins are four-seasons.

New to our lakes? We recommend hiring a local guide for a half day (4 hours) or full day (8 hours). Our go-to guide, Tom, will show you the best hot spots for finding whatever you're hoping to catch!
