Nunavut has a lot of cool, fresh water and phenominal trout fishing.
trout are sport fish as well as important commercially. Growth is quite
slow in most water bodies in Nunavut 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.
Trout are found throughout the Thelon, Back and Coppermine drainage
systems. "Lakers" are plentiful and provide spectacular sport
in hundreds of fast-flowing rivers and streams. The best trophy recorded
was a 29.5 kg (65 lbs!) lunker from Great Bear Lake. Many others have
come close to this and 13.6 to 18.1 kg (30-40 lbs) are common.
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.

Lake Lodge is a fly-in fishing lodge with an initial
capacity of twenty-two guests per rotation. Ennadai
Lake, Angikuni Lake and the Kazan River are in an area
of Canada that is truly untouched. Three
species inhabit these waters: lake trout, northern pike
and arctic grayling. Imagine
drifting a fly down the Kazan, possibly being taken
by a five pound grayling, casting a pike bay catching
dozens of pike or trolling a drop off looking for a
thirty- pound-plus trout. Whether you're a spin-cast
or fly-fish enthusiast, your passion and your dreams
can be satisfied here.
We are a new lodge in a new area and we have a strict
catch and release policy for trophy fish, ensuring that
this natural resource remains as it is today. Our equipment
and facilities are world class. Ennadai Lake is on the
treeline and the remaining area is in the barren lands.
Because these lakes are on a river system they are biologically
prolific, especially on and around Ennadai Lake.
Guests of our first-class, fully-guided fishing adventures
will be flown in from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
