Anglin Lake


Located within Saskatchewan's boreal forest ecozone, Anglin Lake sits to the east of Prince Albert National Park, nestled in the heart of the province within the District of Lakeland No. 521. Accessible via Highway 953, it lies approximately 70 kilometers (43 mi) north of Prince Albert. The lake's sole community, also named Anglin Lake, dots its shores.

Originally a collection of smaller lakes linked by natural channels, Anglin Lake transformed into a man-made reservoir within the Spruce River watershed. Construction of various dams commenced in the early 1900s, culminating in the completion of the present dam in 1960. This final dam, built by the Government of Canada's Department of Northern Affairs, regulated the river's flow and augmented water diversion into nearby recreational lakes, namely Emma and Christopher Lakes.

The establishment of the 1960 dam not only created a new body of water between itself and the original 1939 dam but also elevated the lake's water level by 1 foot 4 inches (0.4 m), surpassing the Tower Road Dams. Consequently, the lake's original levels rose by 3 feet 3 inches (1 m), linking Anglin Lake with Little Anglin Lake, thus forming Christie Bay at its northwest corner where Bitter Creek converges.

Most of Anglin Lake lies within the confines of Great Blue Heron Provincial Park, offering a plethora of outdoor activities such as fishing, swimming, hiking, and camping. Visitors can avail themselves of rentals and accommodations at Land of the Loon Resort / Jacobsen Bay Outfitters. Notably, the lake's westernmost tip extends into Prince Albert National Park.
