There’s nothing like the feeling that you’re hooked on the bottom and when you realize that you’re in over 100′ of water and some monster lake trout takes your lure and runs!

Canadian NWT Fishing Lodge – Trophy Lake Trout Fishing

Point Lake boasts legendary lake trout. Every year, dozens of trophy lake trout are caught and released. The largest to date is 58 pounds and, we know there are more monster lake trout lurking in the crystal-clear waters of Point Lake. The legend of the Point Lake Monster is one such example, it’s a true story of a guest who had a fish on the line for over 6 hours, when his rod snapped from the tension, and it got away. It’s just a matter of time before the next world record lake trout will be caught.

Fishing lake trout does not require any previous experience, our guides are happy to teach you what you need to know on your fishing trip. Keep in mind, reeling in a trophy lake trout can sometimes take 30 – 45 minutes, unless you’ve caught the legend! Our professional guide team are a big part of reason why we are the best NWT fishing lodge, in addition to their fishing expertise, they are fun to be around, and we know you’ll enjoy your days the lake with them.

Our fishing trips start in Yellowknife, with a float plane charter flight north, to the edge of the barrens. The barrens have an understated beauty, the glacial swept lands stretch as far as the eye can see, with undulating hills, steep cliffs and sandy beaches. While on your trip you could see a variety of animals including caribou, moose, grizzly bears and a variety of birds.

In addition to trophy lake trout fishing, there are opportunities to fish for Arctic Grayling as well. Grayling fish can be sought after in the evening right behind your guest cabin. Alternatively access to these feisty fish are found in the tributaries that flow into Point Lake.

Our lodge fishing trips vary in length, with our week long, 7-day fishing trip being the most popular. Shorter day fishing tours and trips are also available. Please see the individual packages below for details.
