BIG Trout, that’s our thing, so if you’re looking for trophy-sized lake trout this is it. Fly-out on a charter float plane over 200 miles North of Yellowknife to Point Lake, one of the largest rivers on the Coppermine River system. Typically ice free by the second week in July Point Lake offers the ideal environment to fish for trophy lake trout. It's a different game fishing for lake trout up here because the fish are found in shallow water all summer long, making them some of the most hardest fishing most aggressive fish you've been hooked into.

Aylmer Lake Lodge explodes with bird life. Arctic Peregrines, Sandpipers, Red Throated Loons, Parasitic Jaegers, Bald Eagles, Golden Eagles, Geese, Ducks, Yellow Billed Loons, and the list goes on the birds seem to be everywhere. Watch Loons running across the water. See the adult birds pushing their young out of the nest and chasing them back up to the nest to strengthen them for long journeys.
