Itinerary

July 20 – 22 : Your Typical Day

7:00 AM – Begin your day with a spectacular lakeside view. Enjoy a steaming hot cup of coffee and nourishing breakfast. This is a great time to discuss the days’ activities; anglers & guides can plan lunch whether they prefer to take a prepared picnic lunch or stop for an incredible shore lunch and talk about fishing locations. It is easy to follow along on the Point Lake map hung on the lodge wall. Each day at Point Lake is unique, as insects, weather and fishing action will influence the day’s activities. Anglers often depart for a day of fishing at 8:00 AM, returning to the lodge around 6 PM. That being said, this is your trip and you have the freedom to decide what time you want to head out fishing in the morning.

At days end we welcome you to share stories of the day over drinks in the gazebo, in the lounge and while enjoying a home cooked meal; take advantage of the wood-fired sauna, overlook the spectacular scenery from your porch and in the privacy of your guest cabin. And, if you still long more more fishing, be sure to grab a road and fish for grayling in the small lake behind your guest cabin.

July 23 – Last Day and Return to Yellowknife

7:00 AM – Even with an early start you likely won’t see the sunrise, this is land of the midnight sun, and nature makes getting up early. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before packing for your return flight to Yellowknife. Your flight departs at approximately 8:45 AM, landing you in Yellowknife at approximately 10:30 AM. Our team members will be at the float base to meet you and take you to the airport or hotel. If time permits, we’re happy to take you shopping at the local gift shop and/or grab a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants.
