The Far North

The last true frontier, Northern Canada is known for its rivers and lakes, blessed with an abundance of large fish. Though the fish in these frigid waters tend to grow slower; they are able to live significantly longer, and ultimately grow much larger than fish living further south.

Currently home to world record arctic char, lake trout, and grayling, the north contains endless opportunities for anglers looking for the ultimate Canadian fly fishing experience!

The far north offers the chance to fish a vast array of streams, rivers, and lakes of all sizes. For river anglers, bull trout, dolly varden, and grayling densely populate the rivers and streams of the north. These fish are so plentiful that catching and releasing over a hundred in a morning is a common occurrence. Inconnu, also known as sheefish, or river tarpon, are found in the most remote river systems of the Yukon. These explosive fish make a great addition to anyone’s species list. 

The lakes of the far north are home to the biggest lake trout on earth. While not a usual fly target, massive trout can be targeted while patrolling shallow flats and creek mouths during the spring. Additionally monster northern pike inhabit the shallow weed beds and mudflats of the northern waters. These toothy predators known locally as water wolves inhale poppers and mouse flies with what can only be described as bad intentions.

For anglers looking for an action packed fly fishing experience, Nunavut’s arctic char fishing is for you! These fish are without question the toughest pound for pound fighters of the Salmonoid family. During prime time, hooking up to three trophy fish in an hour is quite common, landing them however, is another story. Accommodations in the far North are sparsely located, and range from rough and rugged to 5 star lodges.
