Sport Fishing in Nunavut

Within a remote and rugged landscape, Nunavut promises the fishing trip of a lifetime. Catch lake trout you can barely wrap your arms around! Tangle with wild arctic char that will test your endurance and your gear! Share the tundra with polar bears, muskox and caribou; the only other anglers in sight are your fishing buddies.

The Inuit have long-forged a living from this unique and bountiful land. With up to 24 hours of daylight, casting for trophy-sized pike and arctic grayling is uninterrupted by darkness. Today fishing lodges and full-service communities are spread throughout Nunavut – from below the tree-line to the ice-gripped rock and gravel of the northern islands – providing anglers with true adventure in a land like nowhere else on earth.
