Everything’s bigger in the Northwest Territories and the fish are no exception. Cold, clear and teeming with record-breakers, legendary Northern waters offer some of the world’s most spectacular sportfishing. Our renowned fishing lodges go the distance to ensure action-packed adventures on unspoiled lakes and rivers in the Barrenlands or the forested taiga. Most resorts are accessible only by bushplane, but each one is ready to provide the kind of sportfishing most people can only dream about. Facilities range from luxury lodges to do-it-yourself cabins. Anglers lured North by the prospect of reeling in trophy lake trout, char, Northern pike and Arctic grayling can choose from a comprehensive array of weekend and week-long packages. There’s one for every dream, whether it’s working a roaring mountain stream or trolling a deep blue lake like Great Bear or Great Slave. Fly in to a lodge on its own lake in the forest, or on the barrenlands, and let an experienced fishing guide show you where to land a trophy lake trout. Rent a cabin and fish round the clock under the midnight sun. If fly fishing is your game, our Northwest Territories fishing outfitters will guide you to a sport fishing adventure you’ll never forget. Visitors in search of fishing adventures can also contact local outfitters in most communities. Wherever anglers choose to travel, expert guides know where to find the big ones. In spring, ice fishing is popular. Jig for trout on a northern lake, or try for Arctic cod on the sea ice.
