The Northwest Territories of Canada include the regions of Dehcho, North Slave, Sahtu, South Slave and Inuvik. Their remote landscape encompasses forest, mountains, Arctic tundra and islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Deh Cho Nahanni National Park Reserve centers around the canyons of the South Nahanni River and 90m-high Virginia Falls. The regional capital, Yellowknife, is on the north shore of Great Slave Lake.
The Northern Territories are famous for having great fishing for Northern pike, Arctic grayling, Arctic Char, and most of all, Lake trout. Canada’s Northwest Territories is a sparsely populated, huge wilderness area scattered with countless lakes and rivers, all loaded with fish. With so much water and so few people, fishing Northwest Territories is fantastic and you’ll likely get the all the fishing you want, all to yourself.
