THINGS TO DO

FISHING

Angling in the north is a special experience. Lake trout, grayling, pickerel (walleye), dolly varden, whitefish and pike are abundant and your chosen fishing hole can be as remote as you wish it to be.

The combination of trophy-size fish, an interesting variety of game species and their presence in surface waters make Great Slave Lake angling without equal in the world. The most common fish are delicious - ciscoes, whitefish, lake trout and pike. A number of lodges and camps are available for sport fishing.

Separate licenses are required for each province, the Northwest Territories, and the national parks. For more information on fishing regulations by province and territory, check with the local visitor information centres or on these websites:
