Discover the finest fishing holes

Land a 40 pound Pike along the shore of Great Slave Lake. Troll for mammoth Lake Trout, or fly fish for acrobatic Arctic Grayling. You’re in expert hands with licenced Northwest Territories fishing outfitters. They offer superb angling adventures on lakes and rivers for half a day, a day, or longer. Whether you stay close to town or fly out to a remote lake, your outfitter will make the arrangements for you, provide expert guide services, and arrange your air charters, if required.
