Fishing with the Blackmur's Athabasca Lake Fishing Lodge

Guests fish from 18-foot boats with nice wide 80-inch beams and flat flooring for easier casting. The boats are well-equipped and offer rod holders, pedestal seats, and a 40 hp motor.

As mentioned this is a place for Trophy Fishing and you have access to four fantastic species of fighting fish. The Northern Pike are common in the 20-pound ranges with big Pike in the 50-55 inch range. The Lake Trout are fat and lazy and the big ones range from 30-50 pounds. Just as a teaser, the provincial record for Lake Trout is 51 inches long, 36-inches wide and estimated to weigh 82-83 pounds. That's King Salmon size. The Walleye fishing here is good with plenty of 2-5-pound Walleye available. Big Walleye approach the 8-pound mark and if you are lucky you might land a 10 pounder. The Arctic Grayling are the smallest of the fish, but they are also much smarter. Arctic Grayling usually weigh in the 3-5 pound range. Grayling require light tackle and a 5-6 pound rod. They make excellent targets for fly fishermen and so do those big Northern Pike.
