This lodge in the Yukon offer fly-in-lake and river fishing at it's finest. Whether you choose to spend the day trolling or casting for big lake trout, fly casting for arctic grayling on the Smith River or fishing for huge northern pike at one of the hike in lakes, every day is an adventure.
Welcome to a world where fishing is the way you've always dreamed it should be. Huge Lake trout, Northern pike and Arctic grayling live in large numbers in waters as pure as they were 100 years ago, and just you and a few friends are there to savour the experience. At this lodge you get to fish on lakes and rivers that are surrounded by wilderness virtually untouched by humans - a land populated by moose, caribou, bear, wolves and many other creatures.
During June, July and August of each year this lodge hosts some of the best fishing trips the north has to offer. Upper and lower Toobally lakes are separated by 12-miles of the Smith River. The Smith is an incredible fishery on it's own. Large numbers of arctic grayling, whitefish, northern pike and lake trout can be found in this wilderness waterway. With a lodge on both lakes we are able to offer clients a wide variety of water to fish without the high costs of fly-outs.
The cold, clear waters of the Toobally Lakes produce remarkable lake trout fishing, with fish averaging 12 to 15 pounds and frequently topping 25. The true beauty of the system, however, is the range of options it offers: everything from early-season sight-casting to huge rising fish with flies or lures, to trolling a sinking fly line or plugs and plastics to lakers around the many reefs.
The Yukon is home to some of the best northern pike fishing on the planet. Both upper and lower Toobally Lakes have a large population of these brutes. Whether you prefer to use fly or spinning gear, hang on. These fish are large and aggressive.
In addition to the excellent pike fishing the main lakes offer, there are small boats with motors on some of the smaller lakes in the surrounding area. These are accessible by a short hike through the forest on our established trails. These lakes regularly produce some real monsters that can go close 50-inches.
A fly or spin-fishers dream, the Smith River is literally teeming with schools of arctic grayling. These fish are real fighters too, often breaking water before they are landed. Twelve miles of the Smith River separates upper and lower Toobally Lakes. This makes access easy for our jet-boats. Whether you prefer to wade or fish from the boat you will want to spend more than one day experiencing this fishery.
