If your dream is to snag a trophy walleye, wrestle a monster pike or land a Northern Alberta laker, fishing Alberta’s north is sure to get you hooked.

While many of these lakes and rivers are drive accessible, others offer the unique experience of fully outfitted lodges or rustic and isolated camps. Up north, you’ll find stellar fishing for pike, walleye, perch, lake trout and Arctic grayling. Most of the lakes and rivers are accessible from the main highways.

Convenient air access and connections from major centers make your trip an easy one. In addition to Highway 63, Highway 881 now provides fully paved secondary access to Fort McMurray and the great fishing locations in the Conklin area.

To view a map of this area, check out  Alberta Guide to Sportfishing Regulations  or log on to Alberta Outdoorsmen Forum.

No crowds, no stress fishing is the way of the north, and the northern operators you’ll find listed here can outfit you with all the gear, help you find the very best spots and pick just the right lure to land that big one. Whether you’re looking for the catch of a lifetime, wanting to spend some time in the great outdoors or a family looking for a fun vacation, fishing the north is the experience for you!
