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.

Come join award-winning Canadian creative landscape and wildlife photographer, artist, and educator, Dave Brosha for an action-packed five-day workshop in late August and early September to capture the vibrant colours and Aurora Borealis in one of Canada's most beautiful northern settings. Explore the world of nature photography through a series of slideshows, talks, demonstrations, and hands-on shooting experiences. The workshop will be held at Aylmer Lake Lodge.
