2022 Fishing Packages:
For the 2022 season we have a drive to Southend, SK option. From there, depending on the price options you choose, you board a covered boat or a float plane to Tate Island Lodge. We are also happy to customize packages to suit your personal and corporate needs including arranging charter flights from other cities such as Winnipeg, MB, Saskatoon, SK and Edmonton, AB. Please contact us with your request.
For the foreseeable future, Tate Island Lodge will be a small operation with big camp infrastructure. This means that during your stay, your group may have the property to yourselves or you may share the property with one or two other small groups. We don’t expect to have more than 8-14 guests at any given time, THAT’S IT! Your evening down time spent in and around our massive lodge will be anything but crowded. In addition, we’ve switched the whole camp over to solar power therefore the hum of the generator is kept to a minimum and our guests can enjoy what they prefer to hear on their adventure away from the city, THE SOUNDS OF NATURE!
Drive/Fly-In or Boat
Our drive/fly-in option is achieved by driving yourself to the south end of Reindeer Lake, Southend, SK. This is done by flying in to Saskatoon, renting a SUV and driving approximately 6 hours north to Southend (or, we can quote a shuttle at your request). From there you will choose to board a Tate Island Lodge chartered float plane to Tate Island Lodge or ride in our well equipped Hewescraft boat up to the lodge. The lesser rate is for the boat, the more expensive rate is for the float plane. The float plane ride is 30 minutes, the boat is a scenic 2 hours. Because we aren’t depending on set charters, Dates are flexible, contact us to discuss your dates. The boat in option is $2600 USD plus tax and the float plane option is $3000 USD plus taxes.
