Trophy lake trout and arctic grayling fishing awaits you from this lodge on Great Bear Lake in northern Canada. Great Bear Lake is best described as the ultimate northern lake fishing experience. A 74 pound lake trout was caught and released here in 1995. The lake also holds many other IGFA records in recent years. The water of Great Bear Lake is very cold and relatively shallow which makes fishing vastly different from the lower latitudes. You can troll, cast and jig in crystal clear water rarely deeper than 15 feet.
The fly fisherman can challenge these shallow lakers on streamer patterns. Expert guides take you through this breathtaking arctic wilderness and when the fishing day is over you can relax back at the deluxe lodge in the land of the midnight sun. Truly a playground for the fisherman in one of the last wilderness frontiers.
On the edge of the tree line and hundreds of miles from civilization, Great Bear is the 4th largest lake in North America and is fished by only 400 lucky anglers each year. There is no better fishing in the world. Great Bear boasts the All Tackle World Records for both lake trout and grayling, as well as dozens of line class records.
On your trip you can stumble upon caribou, moose, grizzly bears, muskox and even century old tee-pees. Great Bear is home to indescribable beauty only understood once you've seen it.
This lodge offers the option of an overnight add-on to the Tree River outpost camp for arctic char fishing. The Tree River camp has been proclaimed by many guests as a life changing experience. There is something quite magical about the place and in addition to its majesty and beauty is the fact that it produces the largest Arctic Char in the world. The lodge and amenities are quite simple compared to the main lodges and this compliments the surroundings. Fishing is done from shore and both fly and spin fishing are successful. The camp has boats on the river to move fishers from place to place but the hiking opportunities to some pools are quite worth the effort.
