  • A remote Dene village
  • Stark River

This is the land of trophy lakes. Fishing in Canada’s northern heartland is a true pleasure due to these beautiful lakes – all of which boast world-class sport fishing. As a result, generations of people have enjoyed fishing Great Slave Lake.

The lodge is located near Lutsel K'e, a remote Dene village where the Stark River meets the east arm of Great Slave Lake.  The location allows for excellent lake and river fishing opportunities where you can fly fish for arctic grayling just a few hundred yards from the lodge.  

The surface fighting 'lakers' of the Northwest Territories must be experienced to be believed.  30-40 pounders are common but why not try to beat the 59 1/2 pound record?  Their behavior on the end of a line must be experienced to be believed. Veteran anglers compare their behavior and fighting qualities with that of the brook trout. This applies particularly to the lake trout in the 10 pound and under class.  

Great Slave Lake and the surrounding areas are home to an abundance of northern pike and offer great sport all season long. They lurk, awaiting the angler in shallow bays, creeks, and rivers. While pike generally run between 5 and 15 pounds, 25-30 pound class have been caught.

If arctic grayling is your species of choice you’re in for a guaranteed good time when you go fishing in the rivers of Great Slave Lake for this creature – unquestionably one of the world’s most beautiful freshwater fish. Guests regularly catch two to four pounders all season.

The lodge is a modern facility with professional guides, world-class fishing and the beauty of the Northwest Territories at your fingertips.  Accommodations are in comfortable lodge rooms or private cabins, complete with running water, electricity, indoor plumbing and maid service.  At the end of the day enjoy a delicious meal, relax in the Finnish sauna or enjoy the beauty of the northern lights.
