Wood Buffalo’s many secluded lakes make for a fisherman’s paradise, whether you’re looking for a weeklong fly-in experience or simply a day on the water away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Experience a birds-eye view of the region as you take off for your fishing adventure in a floatplane and travel to Christina Lake Lodge, Gypsy Lake Lodge or another of Wood Buffalo’s many fly-in fishing camps. The quiet northern lakes offer some of the best fishing in Canada. If you’re looking for a day of fishing a little closer to home, consider one of the lakes within driving distance from Fort McMurray, such as Engstrom Lake on Highway 881.
