North of Hodgson and beyond the Peguis First Nation, a gravel road takes anglers to a collection of lakes that consistently yield big, beautiful fish. The Saint Lakes include Lake St. George which has a campground and Lake St. Andrews's that offers parking, picnic tables and firepits, but no overnight camping. Both have Boat launches. The other lakes (Patrick, John, Peter and Andrew)are only accessible by portage.
