If you are an avid fisherman, chances are you have considered or at least been curious as to what it might be like to embark on a fishing trip in Canada. With all of the giant, beautiful, clear rivers and lakes Canada has to offer, there are certainly many opportunities for spectacular fishing getaways.

Regardless of whether or not you are on the search for the perfect weekend retreat for the whole family or a trip to some of the most remote places only accessible by plane, Canada has what you are looking for if it has anything to do with fishing and the great outdoors. Bass fishing or carp fishing, you can find it all here.

Located 500 miles north of Yellowknife is Great Bear Lake. This lake’s closest road is nearly 300 miles off into the distance; making this one of the most remote lakes you might ever have the pleasure of fishing. It is nearly 12,500 square miles of purely clear water that only sees the light of day for around 100 days of the year. The rest of the time it is covered with an icy layer, responsible for the ice cold waters, which are in turn responsible for harboring some rather old, large fish. Some of them have lived for as long as 80 years.

One community exists on this lake consisting of no more than 500 people at the most. Additionally, there are four lodges with almost 300 miles of water in between each other. Since the lake is only without ice for a few months out of the year, these fishing lodges can only operate for a few months out of the year as well. Between all four lodges, their total occupant capacity is around 160 guests at one time and this is spread out over a vast 12,500 miles.

Another great location to consider is Great Slave Lake. This lake is found around 300 miles to the south of Great Bear Lake and is almost as big and isolated as well. The only difference is that it is home to a charming, active little city on its shores called Yellowknife. This city is considered the Grand Central Station for many of the lake’s fishing accommodations and lodges. It has access to its own airport with plenty of daily flights in and out of the area that will take you to other cities you might like to visit during your stay.

These are just a few places that Canada has to offer its fishing enthusiasts. With friendly, helpful service and a venue suited for everyone, why wouldn’t you want to try your next fishing trip in Canada? So get your fishing gear in check and come on up.
