Frontier Fishing Lodge has a proud heritage. For well over 50 years, we have been offering a fly in fishing experience of a lifetime. The Witherspoon family is proud to have been serving the public since 1990 when the lodge was purchased from Jerry Bricker who owned the Frontier Fishing Lodge for 26 years.
We are located in Canada’s beautiful Northwest Territories, at the mouth of the Stark River on the east arm of Great Slave Lake, well-known for Canada lake trout fishing, arctic grayling, whitefish, and Canada northern pike fishing.
The Best Fly Fishing Canada Offers
The fly fisherman’s dream! Pike rarely pass up a perfectly placed fly. Catching these aggressive predators is not only a total thrill, it’s one of the great experiences in the sport fishing world. Canada fly fishing at its best!
For the best fly fishing techniques, we recommend using an 8-wt. or 9-wt. 9′ rod with both floating WF and WF rapid sink tip lines with 20-30 lb. test backing. Use a 14-18 lb. test tapered leader/tippet, and wire leaders are essential. With floating lines, you may wish to use a fly line one size up from the rod weight – an 8-wt. rod uses a 9-wt. line. Ready for your fly fishing vacation?
Northern pike flies:
Big hair bugs like the Dahlberg Diver and Whitlock Mouserat

Fly fishing for trout can be easy if done correctly. Throughout June and early July lake trout will take dry flies under calm conditions. For the best Canada fly fishing of this prized catch, we suggest using a 9-wt. or 10-wt. fly rod, two spools of line, one with fast sink tip or sinking line and the other with floating, enabling you to cover the water column.
Lines should have 20-30 lb. test backing. With floating lines you may wish to use a fly line one size up from the rod weight – a 9-wt. rod uses a 10-wt. line. This is fly fishing Canada style!
Surface flies such as Lefty’s Deceiver
Red/white, blue/white and silver work well
1/0 hooks are recommended.
We recommend an 8.5′ or 9′ 5-wt. or 6-wt. rod with both floating and moderate sink-tip lines, with 4x-6x knot-less tapered leaders/tippet. With floating lines you may wish to use a fly line one size up from the rod weight – a 5-wt. rod uses a 6-wt. line with these techniques. This is Canada fly fishing the way it should be.
