Pearson Lake Lodge is one of Alberta's best kept secrets in the Fort McMurray region of Northern Alberta. Pearson Lake is unique to the area and caters to those looking to shut off from the outside world and create their own adventure. Traveler's who book the lodge have full access to the boats, generator, both cabins, a sauna, hot water shower, and of course, a lake filled with fish.
Pearson is the only lake in the area that offers anglers both a prolific walleye and Northern pike fishery. Many trophy sized walleye (over 26" and 10+ years of age) and Northern pike (over 10 lbs) are caught every year. Early in the season, it is not uncommon to catch (and release) over 100 fish on a trip.
The lodge is readily accessible by ATV or float plane. It is the most economical lodge in the area since it is primarily a drop-off camp.
Forget the Bass, Pearson is all about that Walleye
The fishing at Pearson gets better each year due to the health of the lake, and of the responsibility of those fishing. Please respect the fish so future generations can have the full Pearson Lake experience.
Pearson Lake boasts 3 km x 1.5 km of clean, blue water surrounded by sandy beaches perfect for an afternoon fish fry. However, it's what lies beneath the water that keeps people coming back year after year. Walleye and pike are abundant and offer anglers of all levels a fun challenge. Some of the big pikes can keep you busy for 15 minutes or more, so make sure you have a strong line. While the walleye may not put up as much of a fight, you will never get bored reeling in fish after fish.
Guests can troll, bob, or fly fish and will find fish in all areas of the lake. The calm water between the island, sandy shoals near shore, and 30 foot drops in the open water are all home to the fish of Pearson Lake.
Largest member of the perch family.
Occurs in rivers, lakes and reservoirs throughout Alberta.
Most walleye populations in Alberta have declined because of over harvesting.
Walleye have slow growth rates in Alberta waters.
Some females spawn as young as six, but some do not spawn until age eight or nine.
An average female walleye produces 60,000 eggs. Only a small number of these will survive to maturity.
These factors make it crucial that anglers practice catch and release.
While the lake is the main draw, the camp is a great perk. The main cabin comes with a fully equipped kitchen, six single bunks and a patio area in the event the rain is coming down, the sun is a bit too bright, or you need better lighting for your all night poker game. A wood fireplace keeps campers warm when the temperature dips. The love shack has two double bunks, also with a wood burning stove.
There is a shower with hot and cold running water, as well as his and hers latrines. At the center of camp is a large fire place surrounded by picnic tables, chairs, and the worlds comfiest hammock. Down by the lake you will find the boats and a sauna.
A generator is located behind the main cabin and powers the entire camp. Fuel is provided for the boats and generator.
