With so many fish to target, many anglers forgo trolling in favor of casting crankbaits and jigs dressed with soft trailers. One favorite, especially for fish of gargantuan proportions, are paddletail swimbaits rigged on jigheads weighing, 1/2, 3/4, or 1 ounce. Fish these aggressively by making long casts and swimming the lures along; several feet above the bottom.
Above and beyond the exceptional fishing, Saskatchewan is a notoriously friendly place to visit. There's no need to keep resources under wraps when you have so much to share. All total there are 100,000 lake and rivers spread across this great province, many with walleyes that have never seen a lure.
Fly-in travel options? Run the gamut from plush high-end lodges, to do-it-yourself ventures where you do your thing at an outpost cabin. You can also drive as far north as the roads will take you, partaking of lodges along the way, boating into lodges on primitive waters, or sticking to more accessible fisheries near cities spread across the southern two thirds of Saskatchewan.
All you have to do is dream big and make plans to get there—to manic walleye fishing just waiting.
