Athabasca Fishing Lodge at Otherside Bay

Athabasca Fishing Lodge is our premier full-service lodge in Otherside Bay at the mouth of the Otherside River that empties into vast Lake Athabasca. The lodge is on the south side of the Lake, about a 20-minute ride in our float plane from Stony Rapids.

Engler Lake Lodge is a quiet retreat that offers fishing getaways for families and small groups. Packages include a partial American plan, and self-guided fishing.

Nestled in a remote wilderness bay, Athabasca Fishing Lodge has all the amenities of a full 4-star facility. We have recently added new cabins with screened decks, and electric heat and air conditioning. All cabins have hot water, showers and bathroom facilities. Your private suite-style cabin has full electrical service 24 hours a day. Daily maid service is provided to every cabin.

Each cabin has a living room, two bedrooms, as well as a shower, flush toilet, sink and mirror. Cabins can accommodate 2 to 8 guests, and come equipped with 24-hour 110 v. electricity, electric blankets, heat pumps, and air conditioning.

Our comfortable lounge adjoins the dining room. Patio doors allow easy access to the full deck, the perfect spot to relax during the long northern evenings and swap stories about the legendary fishing at Athabasca. Or enjoy a good book, watch for wildlife, or get together with friends inside the spacious lounge.

We are well known for our delicious home cooked meals served in our full service dining room. At noon you will enjoy a shore lunch of freshly caught fish, prepared by your guide.

We now have specially designed 18-foot boats with an 80 inch wide beam, flat floor, casting deck, rod holders, pedestel seats, and a tray on each side all the way down the boat. With 40 hp Yamaha and 60 hp Evinrude E-tec motors, your ride to your favorite fishing spot will be faster and much more comfortable, especially on rougher water.

Each day can bring a new fishing experience, whether you choose to fish the river beside the lodge, opt for a fly-out to a remote location, or explore the many bays, inlets, and rivers with your guide. Try your luck fishing for five species—trophy Lake Trout, trophy Northern Pike, Arctic Grayling, Walleye, and Whitefish—within easy reach of the lodge. The action never stops.

Engler Lake cabins

Situated on the shore of Engler Lake, this remote mini-lodge features a complete dining room and five separate guest cabins. Bathrooms with hot showers are centrally located. Meals are home cooked and served in the dining room overlooking beautiful Engler Lake. Engler Lake is located near the inlet of the Riou River and is part of a chain of remote lakes and rivers emptying into Lake Athabasca. The Northern Pike fishing is superb, and the Walleye is the best we know of.

Because you fish close to the lodge on this small lake, you don't need a guide. You have unlimited use of the boats, motors and fuel. You choose your own schedule, and can be out on the lake when you want. Our cook and lodge manager ensure that your stay will be both comfortable and fulfilling.
