Trophy fishing from a portable floating tent camp | CA-YDL501

Fish for trophy lake trout and pike as you move your accommodation around the lake


This movable floating fishing camp is located 15 minutes by floatplane north of Yellowknife between Duncan and Graham lakes in the Northwest Territories of Canada. You will enjoy the freedom of fishing on your own schedule and moving around the lake at your own pace as you fish for trophy lake trout and northern pike. Catch and release is encouraged, but a meal of small fish at a shore lunch is always popular.

Northern pike and lake trout make up the majority of the quarry, but there are also opportunities for arctic grayling and whitefish. The northern pike grows large here and 48-50+ fish have been caught and released in Duncan Lake. In the early season, you will find the largest pike cruising the shallow bays.  This is a prime time to target them and they readily take floating or shallow running lures and flies.  There is nothing quite like sight fishing for large northern pike in clear shallow water.  There are many shallow bays on both lakes as well as inlet streams that offer the perfect habitat for large northern.

The lake trout fishing is also great, along with the steep drops and boulder-strewn bottoms throughout the season.  The biggest lakers will be deeper in mid-summer, but adding weight to deep running lures, spoons or crankbaits while trolling will pay off. Also, drifting and jigging over ledges or humps will produce savage strikes from trout and this is no time for daydreaming.  

Fish and your own pace and motor and anchor the camp in the sheltered coves and bays of the lake.  You will have your own private paradise to enjoy a true wilderness getaway.
