Stockman's Lodge is situated on an island on Cuelenaere (Cul-en-air) Lake 120 Miles North of La Ronge, Sask.  The camp has a southern exposure to the warm summer sun and a sandy beach. Cuelenaere is a cool, clear, and deep lake with many islands and bays with spots up to 130 feet deep. Lake trout can be caught weighing 30 plus pounds. Our quiet bays are home for large northern pike up to 50 inches and 30 pounds. Cuelenaere is 12 miles long and 4-1/2 miles at its widest part with bays and shorelines to protect you from any wind or weather. There are no long boat rides, as fishing starts when you leave the dock. 



A fifteen minute hike through the portage to Buss Lake is very scenic and easy. This lake is a similar size to Cuelenaere and has many bays and long inlets that host huge northern pike, reefs and deep pools for lakers, and selected areas for walleye.  Buss Lake is surrounded by tall white spruce, where wildlife is abundant, watch for caribou, moose, or bear on the shoreline as you fish. You can explore an old trappers cabin, where you can only imagine the long, cold winter months spent trapping and raising a family. Buss Lake is a day-use lake only with no accommodations; and after fishing for your shore lunch and exploring, your guide will escort you back through the portage for dinner at the main camp.


Two new log cabins were built in June 2004 with private bathrooms--complete with hot showers and flush toilets. Each cabin has a bedroom with two twins and can sleep three in the main area. A wood heater and a bar fridge complete the inside, while a large deck for viewing the lake accent the outside. You will find them very comfortable and cozy.


All meals are presented in the main lodge dining area. Hot breakfasts and great home-cooked dinners with all the trimmings. After dinner, relax and visit, play cards, throw darts, or just hang out.
