Fly fishing in Canada offers anglers a serene and picturesque experience amidst the country’s stunning natural landscapes. From the pristine rivers of British Columbia to the remote streams of Newfoundland, there is a diverse range of fishing opportunities to explore. Whether casting for native species like trout and salmon or chasing trophy-sized pike and walleye, the crystal-clear waters of Canada provide a welcoming sanctuary for both seasoned fly fishermen and beginners. With knowledgeable local guides and a commitment to conservation, fly fishing in Canada is not just about catching fish, but also about connecting with the great outdoors in a sustainable and respectful way.

Igloo Lake Lodge

Very few places on this planet are home to brook trout big enough to lure fly fishermen into traveling great distances in pursuit of them. We traversed the Atlantic Ocean to fly fish for brook trout in the Canadian province, Newfoundland and Labrador, and the fish that awaited us weren’t exactly small… You may think that fly fishing for brook trout for a full week is overkill, but Igloo Lake Lodge offers great fishing in the lake itself, in nearby ponds and in the river system that feeds through Igloo Lake. And during a week’s worth of fishing you’ll be throwing and retrieving streamers, drifting nymphs through promising pocket water, and casting delicate dry flies to rising fish. The fish are beyond beautiful – and they come in XL sizes! Our biggest of the week was a whopping 8lbs.

Wolf Bay Lodge

Looking to target trophy-sized Northern pike in the most pristine waters imaginable? It’s somewhat paradoxical to travel all across the Atlantic to target a fish species that we can catch in our local lakes and rivers. But, looking back, it was well worth the trip! Not just for the number of times we broke our personal bests, but for the wilderness experience – and the bonus lake char action. Phelps Lake is a massive lake in the north-eastern corner of the Canadian province, Saskatchewan. It’s a glacial lake with a surface area of about 130 km2, and with the exception of a few areas with up to 30 meters of depth, it is an incredibly shallow lake – something that makes it an ideal habitat for pike.

Great Bear Lake Lodge

Want to catch world-record lake char on one of the most remote lakes on the planet? When we fished Great Bear Lake, we caught pristine lake char in excess of 15 kilos. These fish are dogged fighters that hit flies with cruel intentions. But there is more to Great Bear Lake than just the lake char. Great Bear Lake is the world’s fourth biggest lake – a massive freshwater reservoir with a water table of 31.153km2 and water depths of up to 446m. It is situated in the central part of Canada’s vast Northwest Territories, which borders on the Arctic Ocean to the North. 15 different species of fish inhabit the lake including lake char, grayling, pike, and whitefish.

Tree River Lodge

One world record at a time. Tree River in the western corner of Canada’s Nunavut province is a fabled arctic char fishery with a reputation that is blown completely out of proportions. At least so it seems – until finally, one day, you get to experience for yourself the truly incredible fishing the river has to offer.
