Yukon Ice Fishing

Ice Fishing in the YukonLet us take you out for an ice fishing adventure on one of the beautiful lakes in the Whitehorse area. The Yukon is the Land of Plenty when it comes to rivers and lakes. The choices are endless and the fishing is excellent.

Depending on conditions, our guide will choose the ideal lake for your ice fishing experience. We will pick you up at your hotel and after a quick stop at our store for fishing licenses, we depart for our tour. After a short drive, we leave our vehicle parked by the lake shore and Yukon Ice Fishing Photowalk the short distance to our first spot. With the help of an ice-auger, we will drill a hole in the ice. The ice on a lake can be from 30 cm to 1 m thick! Using an ice fishing rod and bait, you can catch Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout, Arctic Char, and Northern Pike. For everybody’s comfort, we will get a fire going and pass hot drinks around. Take a look around and enjoy the beauty of a winter’s day while waiting for the big catch!
If luck is on our side, (and if you wish) we can cook the catch right on site! You will be delighted to find out how tasty fresh Yukon fish are!

Of course, many tall tales are told about “the one that got away”. It is always fun to swap these stories from the different climates and regions around the world! Come tell us your story and create a new adventure with Up North Adventure!
