Fishing Great Bear Lake

Great Bear Lake – Home to the Biggest Lake Trouts in the World!

Great Bear Lake is among the planet’s largest bodies of fresh water, with a surface area of 31,400 sq km and depths that reach 440 metres. It’s also the biggest lake entirely within Canada, and the 8th Largest in the world. Great Bear has a reputation among fishermen that stretches back many years. The Lake has consistently claimed some of the largest lake trout ever recorded, and prize trout are still being hauled from its depths.  While the true origins are unclear, the name mostly developed from the northern constellation of stars, called Great Bear, which is reflected in its waters.

Fish with local guides as they catch not for sport but for a community feast. Travel to your guides’ secret spot and look down into crystal clear waters teaming with lake trout and arctic grayling. Deline’s remote location means you’ll almost have the entire Lake to yourself! 

Fish stay close to the surface in the cold and clean waters so whether you are an experienced angler or novice; this is a fisherman’s paradise. With nearly 24 hours of Sunlight in July and August explore the remote untouched wilderness after a day on the water. During ice fishing season, enjoy the comfy confines of purpose-built huts complete with wood fire stoves.
