Located on the historic Sturgeon Weir River, Pawistik Lodge guests experience the kind of fishing normally reserved for exclusive fly-in trips to Canada's far north. Trophy northerns are the norm, as well as amazing catches of walleye throughout the whole system of 200 miles of rivers and lakes. We have a rainbow trout lake which sees regular catches over 8 pounds. Although the Sturgeon Weir is a major Northern Shield river, at some points almost a mile in width, rapids both north and south of the lodge make the river your private preserve. For your convenience, we park our boats above and below the rapids - in other words, no portaging! Our catch and release policy ensures that a large fish caught in the system lives to get even bigger. Of course, you can keep your limit of fish for the table. Most of our motors are new l5 h.p. units, as well as new 14 foot aluminum boats.
