Your Northwest Territories fishing adventures guide

View of the beach and deck area on Halls LakeIf you’ve ever longed for solitude and the opportunity to fish your own lake or river, then the Northwest Territories has an angling experience waiting for you. Fly in to a NWT wilderness lodge in the forest or on the barrenlands and let an experienced fishing guide show you where to land that trophy lake trout. Rent a cabin and fish round the clock under the midnight sun, on a lake that you have all your own.

If you enjoy fly fishing get ready for a fly fishing adventure you will never forget. In spring, the ice fishing season heats up. Grab some rays on a quiet lake beside a warm fire, close to a cozy lodge.

Our trophy game fish include the feisty arctic grayling, the great northern pike, and our tasty fighting fish, the lake trout and the walleye. For a day-long fishing charter or a week-long dream vacation come to the the Northwest Territories where a real legendary wilderness fishing adventure is waiting for you.

Arctic Char are a great tasting catch. They are generally found in the icy waters of the Arctic Rivers as they make their way inland to spawning lakes. They have dark green backs and silvery, spotted sides and bellies. During the fall spawning season, males develop long, hooked lower jaws and their sides and bellies turn bright orange-red. A few char do however remain in freshwater lakes year-round. Average weight: 2.25 - 3 kg (5 - 7 lbs).
Arctic Char are found in the northwesterly corner of the Northwest Territories.

Check out our great Yukon fishing info for your trip preparation.

All our fishing is catch and release. Guides weigh your trophy and take a photo of you with your prize. Barbless hooks must be used so your legendary northern catch can be returned to the water unharmed to challenge another angler in the future.

The NWT welcomes visitors to the abundant and pristine fishing waters but there are basic rules to be followed. These rules are explained in the NWT Sport Fishing Guide, available in printed or downloadable versions from the Government of the Northwest Territories Department of Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development.
