Anglers will experience unforgettable lake fishing north of 60 in the pure, clean waters of Blachford Lake in the Northwest Territories. Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Walleye and Whitefish are all in abundance and some of them so big you won't believe your eyes.
This lodge is the only settlement on 17 mile long Blachford Lake. The lake boasts some big fish - 38 lb lake trout and 28 lb northern pike. They have been practicing catch and release fishing for more than 25 years, and the big ones are returned to the lake to grow some more. Anglers can try for pickerel in Magrum or Grace Lake, a short walk away. Although we encourage catch and release, each boatload of anglers can keep two or three small fish for a traditional shore lunch, or they can bring them back to the lodge to be served at dinner.
Located 60 air miles southeast of Yellowknife, the lodge can only be reached by charter float aircraft and is the only lodge on the lake. This seclusion ensures the environmental integrity of the lake and ample stocks of fish for the future. This also provides the ideal setting for a relaxed northern experience you won't soon forget. For the non-angler there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy including canoeing, hiking and kayaking.
Thought remote, the lodge offers amenities such as gourmet meals, indoor washrooms and shower facilities, electricity, private lodge rooms or cabins, outdoor hot tub and sauna.
