Trout Rock Lodge Trophy Pike Fishing

Northern Pike (esox lucius) are the fastest freshwater fish in the world!

Enodah Wilderness Travel Ltd. and Trout Rock Lodge have catered to anglers from all over the world for more than 20 years. Our mission is to put trophy size pike on the end of your line. Anglers come to Great Slave Lake with very high expectations. They never leave disappointed. Monster Pike are everywhere!

  • Only sportfishing lodge in the 100 miles long North Arm of Great Slave Lake.
  • Rated #1 Pike Fishing Destination in the world by Hank (Henry Waszczuk) in Fins & Skins special anniversary edition 2015.
  • In-Fisherman Field Editor Matt Straw rates Trout Rock Lodge among the top spots in his list. He says “the lodge location in an archipelago formed by thousands of islands, protects some of the most expansive far northern pike habitats on earth.” Straw says “you’ll find lots of trophy pike over 40 inches long.” And he reports more 50-inch pike are caught here every year than anywhere he’s been. 

Why are the pike so big up here?

We are the only sportfishing lodge in the North Arm of Great Slave Lake.

There is an abundance of baitfish, no fishing pressure, catch and release policy, perfect habitat, thousands of unexplored islands and shallow weedy bays, and a world-famous lake that is 300 miles long. That’s just for openers!

You could spend several lifetimes on Great Slave Lake and never fish the same place twice. Better still, the absolute best fishing holes are very close to the Lodge. No time is wasted traveling to the fishing grounds.

Even the everyday shakers are healthy and savage and will arm wrestle with you right to the boat. Really big pike peel line from the start, shake your shoulders and run time and time again. It’s a special kind of day landing a four-foot pike. 99% of our clients catch a 40″ trophy or better during peak season, late May to late July.

Fishing on top with a fly rod, casting a Moss-Boss, or buzz bait is especially exciting. You can actually see the boil of the Pike as they stalk their prey. Their attack is ferocious and several hits may occur before the final strike.

We promote catch & release. Single barbless hooks are mandatory.

Your Guide

The valuable experience and traditional knowledge of our guides are unmatched. Trout Rock Lodge employs professional guides from all over Canada. They are masters at preparing a Northern Canadian shore lunch of filets from the morning’s catch with all the fixings. Most of our guests prefer a Great Northern Pike shore lunch, hands down, over Walleye!

We use 18′ radio-equipped Jon boats with 40 HP outboards. These boats and motors are the perfect combinations for fishing the weedy shallows and rocky shoreline of the North Arm.
