The Lake Trout (Salvelinus namaycush) are native to North America with a large abundance in Northern Alberta. Although they are considered to be trout, (as the name “Lake Trout” implies), they are actually part of the Salmon family and the largest of the Char. Thanks to our cold Canadian waters, it allows anglers to easily catch Lake Trout close to the surface most of the season. During the warmest time of the summer, they enjoy a deep water environment, then come back up to spawn in August to mid-September.
Many guests will catch a “Master Angler” Northern Pike, with many more catching Pike over 40” mark and bigger. The Northern Pikes latin name, Esox Lucius, translates to water wolf, an obvious reference to the predatory habits of this fish as they have great hunting skills.
They typically ambush their prey attacking out of nowhere, usually striking from the side and will literally feed on anything, even their own. Due to the colder waters of NAMUR Lake, Northern Pike and other fish typically live longer than in the south.
It is hard to find a more beautiful freshwater fish than the Arctic Grayling, its colourful, large dorsal fin, that is much larger than any other cold-water fish, gives it the name the sailfish of the north. The Arctic Grayling (Thymallus Arcticus) is part of the salmon family (Salmonidae family) which comprises five subspecies. The size of a Grayling can range anywhere from 30 to 40 centimeters (12 to 16 inches), and can reach up to 55 centimeters (22 inches).
