In the 1930s and 1940s, the two would patrol together as law enforcement officers in the Reindeer Lake and Wollaston Lake
Northern Saskatchewan has some of the best fishing in the world, and WFO's lodge is located at the southern end of Wollaston Lake
. Giant lake trout, northern pike, grayling and walleye call this lake home.
Synopsis: In 1999, reporter Julie Buckles and husband Charly Ray set off on a 1700 mile journey with their handcrafted red canoe from Bayview beach for their honeymoon, traveling the Voyageur Highway from Lake Superior to Wollaston Lake
where they stayed for the winter.
They travelled many miles to come to 'the south' from Peace River, Valley View and Grande Cache in Alberta and from Fond du Lac and Wollaston Lake
But when they returned home after 10 days, they returned to a completely intact and undamaged Hatchet and Wollaston Lake
A FEW YEARS ago, a friend proposed a trip to Wollaston Lake
near the border between Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.
I once set up an alpha spectrometer near Wollaston Lake
in Northern Saskatchewan.
Quite predictably, at least more often than not, each fall large herds of caribou, often tens of thousands of animals at a time, moved through the region between Lake Athabasca and Wollaston Lake
while on their southward trek from their summer foraging grounds in the Northwest Territories.
To the north, large transfers of water are proposed from the MacKenzie-Churchill Basin via Lake Athabasca to Wollaston Lake
through to Reindeer Lake and down into the Churchill River system, which is then diverted to the Saskatchewan River just west of the Pas, Manitoba.
From there a newly forged trail (today's 905) pushed farther north 150 miles, supposeably touching the shores of Wollaston Lake
, our intended destination.
