50lb Wopper Trout in Yellowknife
Our Northwest Territories Canadian fishing packages include picking you up at the Yellowknife airport and transporting you to the float plane docks of Great Slave Lake; from there we take off in a Cessna 185, a turbo Beaver, a Cessna Caravan, DeHavilland Turbo Otter or Twin Otter, depending on the size of your group.
The Lake's record for Lake Trout is a 56.5 lb whopper caught in June 2008 by Peter Cleveland of Ottawa.
Anyone who knows anything about trophy lake trout knows that Great Bear Lake produces the largest trout in the world. So it’s no surprise that anglers want to know when they have the highest odds of catching that fish of a lifetime.
The truth is that big trout are caught throughout our short season. Serious trophy hunters have their favorite times and interestingly, they are spread throughout the season. One thing that anglers definitely have to keep in mind is there are no guarantees: This is fishing after all!
