The Lodge

Winefred Lake is situated in the heart of Alberta's boreal forest, 425 Kilometers (265 Mi) Northeast of Edmonton, Alberta. Winefred Lake boasts some of the finest trophy fishing in Alberta,
consistently producing large Northern Pike and Walleye.Canada Fishing Lodge

Constructed of native logs in 1980 Winefred Lake Lodge was originally a fly-in fishing lodge, accommodating up to 16 people. The original lodge (see photo) was destroyed by fire in 1981 and was re-constructed with logs from the Edson/Hinton forest, opening to the public in 1984. In the mid to late 1980’s, a primitive trail from Lac La Biche was constructed utilizing trails and right-of-ways created by Alberta's Oil & Gas and Forestry industries, now making Winefred Lake Lodge a drive-in facility. However, the drive was not for the faint-of-heart, testing the mettle of sportsmen and their 4x4's and providing some great campfire stories.

Bit-by-bit, the road improved making access easier. Today, Secondary Highway 881 is paved all the way from Lac La Biche to Fort McMurray, leaving only 70km or approximately 40 miles of gravel road from the hamlet of Conklin to Winefred Lake Lodge. We still recommend that guests travel to the lodge in a reliable 4x4 or SUV, as our northern roads can get quite muddy after a hard rain.

With a strong emphasis on families, Winefred Lake Lodge has grown to become Northern Alberta's favourite wilderness resort, providing many exciting activities in addition to the spectacular fishing. Guests can now participate in self-guided nature walks, wilderness camping, team-building exercises and ''how-to'' seminars designed to teach the basics of sport-fishing.

While initially coming to fish and/or enjoy the outdoors, after a few days it is not uncommon to find our guests reading a good book on our expansive deck, telling stories around a campfire or, simply relaxing in our outdoor hot-tub.

Regardless of what brings you to Winefred Lake Lodge, we assure you that you will enjoy excellent service, 4-star accommodation; great fishing and that you will take home memories that will last a lifetime.
