  • Great lake for many species of fish, the East Arm is a bucket list location with world class trout fishing and scenery. Work towards the north arm for trophy northern Pike.

  • The best fishing I've ever seen. The guys at Bluefish Services out of Yellowknife are awesome.

  • Probably my favourite lake. It's big and has some of my favourite fish in it. Definately visit the East Arm if given the opportunity. North Arm's white beach as well. 👌
