Yukon lake trout fishing

Yukon Lake Trout Fishing

by test
Yukon Lake Trout Fishing   The Yukon Territory is without question one of fishing’s best kept secrets. There are literally hundreds of lakes, streams, and rivers scattered throughout the Yukon backcountry. Many of these water bodies have never been fished. With a total population of less than 40,000 people, even well-known waters with easy access see little traffic. Although a number of game fish can be found in Yukon waters, the lake trout is king.  In terms of both size and numbers, Yukon lake trout fishing is as good as it gets. Anywhere.   Lake Trout Habitat   Great habitat [...]

Fishing in the Yukon Territory

by test
                                     Fishing in the Yukon Territory The discovery of yellow gold by Skookum Jim Mason, Tagish Charlie, and George Carmack, started the first stampede of outsiders into the Yukon Territory. The trio made their discovery in 1896 on Rabbit Creek, not far from the sleepy little northern town of Dawson City.  By the spring of 1897, news had spread, and the gold rush was on. The great gold rush branded the Yukon Territory forever. Thousands of tourists make the long pilgrimage north up [...]

Fishing for Arctic Grayling

by test
                                             Arctic Grayling Fishing Canada’s Yukon Territory is home to some of the finest arctic grayling fishing on the planet. With their sail like dorsal fin, arctic grayling are one of the most beautiful fresh water species. They are also pound for pound, one of the best fighting fish in the north. Arctic grayling love to break water, and it’s not unusual for them to go airborne multiple times during a fight. Feeding primarily on insects, they are a [...]
Shore Lunch

Shore Lunch

by test
                                               Shore Lunch a Canadian Tradition Fresh fish is hard to beat. Fresh fish you have caught yourself is even better. Shore-lunch is considered by many to be an essential part of any northern fishing trip. But shore-lunch is more than just food; it’s an experience. There is something about eating a good meal cooked over a crackling fire in a wilderness setting that draws you in. A shore lunch can turn a bad day on the water [...]

The Wonderful Woolly Bugger

by test
                                    Woolly Buggers for Yukon Fishing A standby for two generations of fly fishers it’s hard to imagine a more versatile pattern. The wonderful wooly bugger comes in a variety of colors and sizes, and is one of those flies that can’t be fished wrong. Reliable sources credit Russell Blessing for inventing this amazing pattern. Although Russell had the hellgrammite in mind with this fly, they work so well most anglers consider the woolly bugger to be the best general purpose streamer ever [...]

Why Should We Practice Catch-and-Release

by test
Why Catch and Release?   Catch-and-release has been used as a conservation tool in the United Kingdom for well over 100-years. Here in North America it  still faces resistance in some circles. Although this resistance usually comes from those with little angling experience, it is troubling that it exists at all. Conservationists in North America have been advocating catch-and-release since the early 1950s. As a fisheries management tool it has no equal. Self-imposed for the most part, it is vital to the future of fishing. Some of our most famous fisheries wouldn’t exist without anglers willing to forego the legal [...]

Top-Water Tactics For Lake Trout

by test
Top Water Tactics for Lake Trout By now most fly fishers have heard how effective a fly rod is for lake trout. This is remarkable in itself when you consider that not too many years ago a fly rod was not considered practical for this species. Down riggers and deep running lures were the tools of the trade. Thankfully, a few pioneers took fly fishing for lake trout mainstream. Grizzly Creek Lodges’ own Doug Skanse was at the forefront of this movement. Hundreds of hours out on the water convinced Doug that lake trout would take a fly as reliably [...]
Open Water Trapping in the Yukon

Open Water Trapping in Yukon

by test
Open water trapping season in the Yukon is short. The season for water animals opens on October 1st.  Since the lakes will freeze over in November, time is not on our side when it comes to open water trapping. Even though October is a busy month for us, it is still one of my favorite times to be in the bush. The land just seems to come alive. Toobally lakes are a favorite resting spot for a wide variety of waterfowl on their long migration south. Dozens of species of feeding waterfowl ensures a cacophony of sound 24/7. Both big [...]
