  You can't mention the word 'fishing' in Saskatchewan without people thinking fondly about Nipawin and Tobin Lake.

Recognized in 2012 as western canada's 3rd greatest fishery by Western Sportsman Magazine, the Nipawin/Tobin Lake waterways yield 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.

ICE FISHING
  Once the surface waters in Tobin and Codette Lakes freeze, fishermen flock to the lakes to enjoy the second fishing season. Nothing is more satisfying than hooking a massive walleye or pike and pulling it up through the ice.

Tobin Lake is home to the World Walleye Ice Fishing Record. The massive 18.30 lb walleye was caught by local fisherman Fr. Mariusz Zajac. If you're looking for a place to catch some big fish and enjoy the crisp pristine Saskatchewan winter, Nipawin is your ultimate destination!
