Book your Arctic Adventure now!
We are sorry to announce that due to restrictions in place from the COID 19 virus we will not be able to open the lodge this summer. We are arranging our schedules so that guests booked for this summer will have reservations in the similar week in 2021, and guests from 2021 will now move to 2022. Dawn and I look forward to seeing all of you in 2021 and on.
Over the past few years we have found that the most
popular fly rods have been 7 to 10 weight. Floating or shooting tip
lines with mono leaders adjusted to length depending on the depth
of the fish. Usually Char are found in shallow water or streams and
rivers. Depth ranges from 5 inches to 6 or 7 feet. Lake Trout are
found in only inches of water early in our season and move into deeper
water(20 to 30 feet) in August after spawning. Some of our hardened flyfishermen bring two handed rods or Spey rods as well to compensate for the windier days.
Fairly large hooks
can be used for both Arctic Char and Lake Trout with a variety
of streamer patterns being successful. Bright colors mainly reds and
yellows or chartreuse work the best, but silvers, blues and whites
or silver holographic patterns are also popular. When the Char are
feeding on the surface black gnats, woolly buggers and mosquito like
flies are the answer. Remember that most of your fishing on our lakes
and rivers is sight fishing setting the scene for some very exciting
Canada's premier "Catch & Release" Arctic Char & Lake Trout Fly-Fishing Adventure.
The growth rate of arctic char and lake trout is extremely
slow in the frigid waters of the Arctic. For over 50 years High Arctic Lodge has been one of the
pioneers in the practice of catch & release. Our guides are trained
and instructed to release if at all possible all fish caught. Lake Trout on Victoria Island usually spawn in early August and the Arctic Char spawn in late September early October once the ice has formed on the lakes.
Whether you are an avid fly-fisherman or a spincasting angler, this is an experience that you will remember forever.
