Summer Adventure & Fishing
June 1-August 13 2023
Summer Adventure & Relaxation
Welcome to your summer getaway, north of 60. Far from the noise and bustle of any city, Blachford Lake Lodge is happy to be your home away from home in the summer months. Bask in the midnight sun (yup, you can read a book outside all night long!), catch a trophy fish, hike on some of the world’s oldest rock, or simply enjoy the beautiful nature that surrounds you. Blachford Lake Lodge is the perfect place to get away and discover a new sense of self, and a new appreciation for the beautiful landscape surrounding you.
Fishing on Blachford Lake
Blachford Lake offers trophy sized Lake Trout and Northern Pike! In recent years the winning entries in our Trophy Release Contest were a 38 lb. Lake Trout, and a 32 lb. Northern Pike. Whitefish can be caught in Blachford Lake, and Walleye (around 4 or 5 lb.) can be caught on two of the adjoining lakes that are just a short walk from Blachford Lake. The ice melts on the lake in early June making it an excellent time for fishing. Throughout June through to early July, fish are generally caught close to the surface. In late August thru to September Northern Pike bite a lot in shallow water. In early September Trout swim in deeper water and by late September they rise to shallow water to spawn.
At Blachford Lake Lodge we actively promote a “Catch & Release” Fish Management Program that includes the use of barbless hooks and fish gloves to ensure the careful and healthy release of all large fish. However we encourage our guests to enjoy tasty smaller fish for shore lunches or dinners!
Fishing licences must be purchased prior to your arrival at Blachford Lake Lodge and is required for anyone who wants to fish. You may purchase one online at https://licences.enr.gov.nt.ca/.
