There are a number of lakes, rivers and streams in the Wood Buffalo region. Check out some of these vehicle accessible spots to cast your line:  

If your dream is to snag a trophy walleye, wrestle a monster pike or land a Northern Alberta laker, fishing Alberta’s north is sure to get you hooked.

While many of these lakes and rivers are drive accessible, others offer the unique experience of fully outfitted lodges or rustic and isolated camps. Up north, you’ll find stellar fishing for pike, walleye, perch, lake trout and Arctic grayling. Most of the lakes and rivers are accessible from the main highways.

Convenient air access and connections from major centers make your trip an easy one. In addition to Highway 63, Highway 881 now provides fully paved secondary access to Fort McMurray and the great fishing locations in the Conklin area.
