Jan Lake offers some of the best walleye fishing in Saskatchewan. Typical catches range from 1.5 to 4 lbs. Walleye are caught in shallower waters, 5’ to 20’ depending on the time of year and the temperature of the water. They prefer sandy bottoms and the protection of rocky shoals. We suggest jigging with a lead head baited with a minnow, night crawler, leach, or curly tail.
If you are after the powerful fight of the northern pike, you’ll want to explore Jan Lake’s many weedy bays and shorelines. Common pike catches are between 5 and 10 lbs but there are many 15- to 20-lb catches throughout the season. Pike are usually caught while trolling in weedy areas. We suggest using spoons or plugs as bait.
