When you fly into Viking Island, you are leaving roads behind and entering Woodland Caribou Provincial Park. Walleye, Northern, Perch and Lake Trout fishing is excellent here. Douglas is the main lake within a group of deep, small, productive lakes. Onnie, Spider, Peterson, Page, Frank's, Hatchet, Caribou, Embryo, Anchor, and Foley Lakes are all within reach with boats and motors ready. It is at the top of the watershed flowing east into Red Lake. When you travel to Embryo, you cross into the watershed running west to Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba.
From Viking Island, there are many directions to go. Each day can be a different adventure. The staff at the island are available for advice but you plan your own trips and drive your own boat. You can fish the main lake for an hour or two and come back to the lodge for lunch. If you prefer an adventure, there are many possibilities, ask the staff to pack you a shore lunch and boat or canoe up a river, walk a portage, or take an overnight trip.
