Fishing in the Northwest Territories guide

View of the beach and deck area on Halls LakeThe NWT has a unique fishing experience to offer. If you’ve ever longed for the solitude of fishing your own lake or river, then come to the Northwest Territories. You can fly in to a NWT wilderness lodge and let an experienced local 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 where you can call your own.

If you passion is to fly fish get ready for a Northwest Territories fishing adventure you will never forget.
Come fishing for a day or a week-long and get to experience the Northwest Territories where legendary wilderness fishing is waiting for you.
Our trophy game fish include the feisty arctic grayling, the great northern pike, and our tasty fighting fish, the lake trout and the walleye. In spring, the ice fishing season heats up. Grab some rays on a quiet lake beside a warm fire, close to a cozy lodge.

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.

A selection of great Yukon fishing info is available for your trip preparation.

All fishing in the NWT is catch and release. Guides will 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.
