NWT Trout Fishing

Lake Trout
Speckled Trout

The NWT has a lot of fresh water and lots of phenominal trout fishing.
Lake trout are sport fish as well as important commercially. Growth is quite slow in most water bodies in the NWT yet twenty to thirty pound fish are not uncommon. Those living in large lakes usually grow to a larger size than those in smaller bodies of water. They will take the hook in fly fishing, with artificial lures, as well as some baits.

Lake trout are wide-spread in the NWT including the Arctic Islands. They inhabit large lakes such as Great Slave and Great Bear where they support trophy fisheries. They are found in many Shield lakes as well as in deep lakes along the Mackenzie Valley and tundra lakes which extend to the Arctic coast.

Imagine fishing for trout in crystalline azure waters .... drift fishing ...choosing the perfect lure or fly... discovering your very own fishing hole ... and finally savoring the taste of your pan fried fresh trout.
