Welcome to Wheeler River Lodge

Absolute Serenity and Unspoiled Northern Lakes and Forests

Fly-In FISHING

Un-fished waters; lakes with no names that teem with Walleye, Northern Pike and Lake Trout; silence; loons calling in the misty dawn. Your biggest decision – which lure to use. And when to call it quits because your arms are tired from pulling in fish – big fish!

After many years of operation, Wheeler River Lodge is proud of our reputation as one of Saskatchewan’s first class fishing destinations. There is an excellent chance to land all of our five species (Walleye, Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling and Whitefish) in a single day. With miles of water access from our river system as well as several walk-in lakes, you'll find it impossible to fish all our waters on your first trip. That's one of the reasons many of our guests return year after year.


Bear & Moose HUNTING

Saskatchewan Trophy Black Bear Hunts - Excellent bear opportunities with the bonus of fantastic fishing.
Tree stands or spot and stalk – whatever your preference.

Moose hunters will enjoy this wilderness paradise. Un-hunted populations enable trophy-size bulls to reach sizes that make the record books. There is virtually no other hunting in the area surrounding the lodge. Kevin estimates that they have several hundred square miles at their disposal for their moose hunts.

    Quinn Mahoney

    Guide / Caretaker

  • Quinn, our guide and caretaker, is the second generation of the Mahoney family to work at the lodge. Having spent each summer at the Wheeler with his Dad, Quinn knows every unnamed lake and hiding spot that has produced lunkers for many years and will ensure that you catch fish whose replicas will remain lifetime trophies – in your mind and on your wall.

Kevin and Cheryl Rowswell have welcomed visiting fisherman and hunters for many years to their hunting and fishing operations. The Rowswells run two seperate operations, Big Sky Outfitting waterfowl hunting and the fly-in Wheeler River Lodge.

Wheeler River Lodge offers incredible fishing as well as hunting for black bear and moose. Kevin and Cheryl are very proud of their beautiful fishing and hunting camp on the Wheeler River. This total wilderness experience offers the finest opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Big Sky Outfitting is based at their home near Cut Knife, Saskatchewan. We offer both a spring snow goose hunt as well as a fall migratory and upland bird hunt and are based at the Rowswell’s beautiful farm – which just happens to be located in “waterfowl Heaven”! Waterfowl hunters will thrill as flight after flight of birds drop into the decoys. We will have the fields spotted and equipment ready when you arrive. www.BigSkyOutfitting.ca

Ammunition can be purchased onsite.
