Fishing in particular for Northern Pike has become a popular pastime. Dead baiting, lure fishing, and jerk baiting are effective methods for catching this renowned fighting fish. Northern Pike are prized as game fish for their determined fighting, but have also been a source of food since ancient times.
Springtime lake fishing for pike from shore or boat especially effective. During spring the bigger pike move into the shallows to spawn in weedy areas, and later in the season many remain there to feed.
Flotten Lake Resort Limited has been in business since 1979. We have hunted this region for over 30 years. We offer fully guided Whitetail Deer, Black Bear, Bird and Moose hunts. Saskatchewan has always been a favourite hunting ground for these species and our area offers the best of the best.
Our base camp is located right inside Meadow Lake Provincial Park, about 30 minutes into the great Boreal Forest. We have over 135,000 acres at our disposal which enables us to offer our hunters a variety of different settings, including meadows, creeks, thick bush or trees with lots of trails, just to name a few. Our stands are well established and baited/visited daily using the best quality food.
We have an abundance of wildlife including whitetail deer, black bear, moose, elk and among others. Our hunting pressure is extremely low and our hunters have no problems seeing a large quantity of animals. As well, the quality of our animals is unprecedented. So if you are looking to book a whitetail deer, black bear, moose or bird hunt you have come to the right place.
Walleye is the official fish of Saskatchewan and are very popular with anglers. Walleyes have excellent sight in low light and tend to feed extensively at dawn and dusk, on cloudy or overcast days and under windy, choppy water conditions. In dark waters, walleye feed throughout the day.
In spring and fall walleye often feed near shallower areas with spawning grounds, especially during high winds due to murkier, higher oxygenated water around six feet. On calm spring days the walleye are often located at the deep side of the shoreline drop-off and around deep slopes.

We leave the lake resort between 2 and 3 o’clock. You will be in your stand by 4 and 5 o’clock. Our guides will help you get situated in either a platform stand or fixed position tree stand and then action will begin. All hunters see several bears a night. Unless the wind is blowing. Usually 5-30 per night. However bears don’t like wind. It does not matter if you put the stand in your favour, bears don’t like to travel in the wind. We will check you around 7:30 with either a radio or what we call the ribbon system. You put out flagging tape about 300 yards away if you want out of the stand, or have harvested a bear. Legal hunting times vary depending what week you come. Usually between 9:30 and 10:15 pm. We will pick you up with an ATV at that time. Once back at camp we measure, weigh and take more pictures. Guides will skin and cool it down in our walk in cooler, and any of the meat you desire. Once cooled down properly, the hide and meat are frozen for transportation. Now you have the choice to relax even more after your hunt, and if fishing season is open, which opens May 15th you can focus on that if you desire. For an extra fee, guides will take you out and take video of bears if you would like.
