What was perfect? What were my favourite things?
1) the fishing! I'm a complete novice at this but managed to catch fish pretty consistently - and some decent ones too! Loved trying various locations, and portaging!
2) the location! Quiet, peacefulness, silence, stillness, water, trees, eagles, a bear, a porcupine...... nature pure and untouched.
3) The Hosts! Kevin and Cheryl were not just knowledgable and perfect hosts, they have become new, wonderful friends
4) the Lodge - warm, comfortable, well-equipped, bright...a welcoming home-away-from-home
5) Jazz - who can resist Jazz and her diving, playing catch, chasing her "throw" toy!
This is a trip I will never forget, and happily recommend it to anyone fortunate enough to visit Wheeler River Lodge. You won't regret it!
We loved out visit to Wheeler River Lodge. We had never been to any place that remote and the experience was wonderful. The fishing, scenery, and quietness was lovely. Kevin and Cheryl helped us a lot as we are not "fishermen". The scenery and lakes that we visited and hiked to made us sad when we had to leave.
It was a great 5 days!!
I have had a fly-in fishing trip on my bucket list for a long time, and was thrilled to have the opportunity to visit Wheeler River Lodge. The lodge is remote, quiet, comfortable and, most importantly, the fishing is awesome. Kevin was a great help, as some of our party were rookie fishers. We kept him busy taking fish off the lines, etc. Cheryl treated us with some baking, and we enjoyed our evening visits. The Rowswell's have created a wonderful get-away with boats available in a number of locations, lovely spots to enjoy a shore lunch, all surrounded by serenity and beautiful scenery. Our group plans to return again to this little bit of Saskatchewan paradise! If Fly-in Fishing is in your bucket list Wheeler River is the place to go!
The WRL is the place to go if your looking for phenomenal fishing and as much peace and quiet as you want. I have booked this lodge a few times over the past 8 years and CONSISTENCY is the best description. We always catch 40 plus inch pike, boats of walleye, and a few trout and grayling (depending upon the month). Kevin and Cheryl are the only owners I have known and Quinn is the only guide, again CONSISTENCY. Numerous sightings of bears, loons, eagles, as well as the occasional moose or reindeer. The place is top notch from the safe flight service provided, to the comfortable accommodations, to the reliable equipment, to owners that truly want their customers to return. Again...CONSISTENCY.
It is great to know you and your crew will be taken care of.
Incredible fishing. I do not fish on a regular basis, but Kevin and Cheryl offer so much more than fishing. The kinship, hospitality, and warm welcome is enough for me to make this a must return. A first to Canada and a fly in fishing camp for me and honestly the only one I will ever book. Thank you Kevin, Cheryl and Quinn for an unforgettable trip.
