Fishing the Sahtu

The Northwest Territories still holds world records for lake trout caught in Great Bear Lake, and Arctic Grayling pulled from the clear cold streams feeding the big lake.

Norman Wells is the point of departure for a variety of fishing trips, from day trips on Great Bear Lake to fully outfitted fly-in fishing camps on smaller lakes nearby.
The options are as varied as your budget.

Fly to Colville Lake north of the Arctic Circle, stay at the lodge, and then travel north across this large lake to a remote fishing camp for trout action.

Fly out with North-Wright Airways to fish at a camp on Kelly Lake in the Franklin Mountains.

Fly to Deline, make your base at Great Bear Lodge and travel with expert guides on Great Bear Lake, the eighth largest lake in the world, where the shoreline records the deeds of the ancestors in the time before history.
