Plummer's Arctic Lodges – Great Bear Lake

Plummer’s Great Bear Lake Lodge offers exclusive fishing opportunities for serious anglers. It’s located on the fourth largest lake in North America, which is only fished by 300 anglers every year. As Plummer’s is the only operator on the lake, it’s not surprising that it’s home to some huge fish. The lodge holds the IGFA all tackle world records for Lake Trout and Arctic Grayling from this lake, as well as several line class records.

Reeling in Lake Trout is a challenge – they are very strong, fast, and grow massively. Basic techniques for catching this monster fish are trolling and jigging, but it is less known that they can also be caught with fly fishing. When it comes to Arctic Grayling, don’t be deceived by its small size – this rare fish provides great action on a fly. Your guide will assist you every step of the way.

You are welcome to bring your fishing equipment, but it is not necessary as the lodges supply everything. There are also tackle shops in case you want something extra at a reasonable price. Besides comfy rooms, the lodges also have internet access, meeting facilities, 24-hour electricity, and a pool table.

The Plummer’s Arctic Lodges team will make sure you arrive smoothly. Once you arrive in Yellowknife they will meet you at the airport and arrange a flight to the lodge. They will be in touch with you with more specific details.

Plummer’s Great Bear Lake Lodge offers an exceptional fishing experience. Enjoy a pristine natural setting and be amazed at how fast one week can go by. These trips are available only in July and August, so book your piece of heaven now.
