Amazing Fishing on Lake Athabasca
We had the opportunity to fish for Lake Trout all over Canada including some of the major Lake Trout destination lakes such as Great Bear and Great Slave but nothing prepared me for the incredible Fall Fly Fishing for Lake Trout at Lakers Unlimited on Lake Athabasca. My fishing partner Patrick Walsh, Editor and Chief of Outdoor Canada Magazine and I had what can only be described as an epic week landing somewhere between 500 and 600 lake trout ranging between 8 and 30 lbs with our fly rods and setting 5 Line Class World Records in the process.
By the middle of the week we were shaking off 18-20 lb trout so we could get our flies in front of the 30-40 lb behemoths that were cruising underneath our boat as we drifted across the reefs. I can say with confidence you will have the opportunity to catch more big Lake Trout in shallow water on a fly rod than any other destination in North America. The Fall Fly Fishing is one of the most unique, off the charts, fun fly fishing adventures I have ever experienced.
