Winter’s technically over, but there’s still a chance to catch up on some icy fun, and no better place to do it than the Yukon. Many winter pastimes require a lot of effort—hiking through snow, skiing, driving a dogsled—but there’s one activity that requires nothing more than warm clothing, a chair, some drinks and snacks, and a lot of patience: ice fishing!
Yukon has some of Canada’s best fishing for trout, and the entire territory is riddled with secluded lakes and winding rivers, accessible by car or snowmobile. Check out some of these outfitters who’ll make sure you have an amazing experience, and maybe even catch some fresh fish.
You’ll be picked up in downtown Whitehorse and taken to one of the pristine lakes in the area, where the guides will drill a hole in the ice, set you up with your rod and bait, get a fire going, and pass hot drinks around. They’ll even cook up the fish you catch right there, for the freshest lunch experience ever.

Includes: Guide, fishing rod, tackle and lures, snacks, warm drinks, hotel pick-up and drop off (warm winter clothing available if needed)

The guide will select the best lake for that day’s conditions, and drive you there to try your hand at catching some lake trout! The guides do all the prep work, and all you have to do is keep your eye on the lure and don’t let the big one get away.
