First Time At Frontier


T.J. & I would like to thank you and your staff for an unforgettable trip. We had a fantastic time. The hospitality, food, shore lunch and of course the fishing were all things we will never forget. We met lots of nice folks and hope to see them in the future up there. We have to mention and compliment our guide Mike. He is great at what he does and what a great guy. We would like to book for next year around the same time.

97 Lake Trout Caught So Far…


It was Dominion Day (July 1st) and the fifth day of fishing, it was a little slow, but I had caught 97 Lake Trout so far on my trip. Suddenly this monster Lake Trout hit, the fight was on! With the skillful instruction and boat handling from Ryan MacDonald, my guide (holding the fish in the picture), we were able to net this 39.5 pounder. Folks the fishing doesn’t get any better than this. As for the great food and helpful people at Frontier Lodge, we can read my next installment.

A 28 Pound Lake Trout and Then Some More

Fishing the waters surrounding Frontier Fishing Lodge has been one of the best and most memorable experiences in my angling life. The sheer size and numbers of lake trout, pike and Arctic grayling still blows my mind. Can you go anywhere else in the world and land 20 pike in the morning, 20 lakers after lunch and 20 grayling before going to bed? I don’t think so!

Everybody thinking about taking a fishing trip up north should consider visiting Frontier Fishing Lodge—where every single one of Debbie and Wayne’s guests will have the chance of catching the fish of their lifetime. I don’t think I have ever seen so many trophy fish in one week, and I could go on and on about my experiences, the fish we caught but: you just wouldn’t believe the spectacle of fighting a 28-pound laker on the fly rod or of a 20-inch grayling raising for your dry fly. It is fishing at its best, and you better come to see for yourself!
Add knowledgeable guides, friendly staff, tasty meals and gracious hosts and you have the eclectic mix for a perfect fishing vacation!

Dan’s Tale

When I first found out about Frontier Fishing Lodge, I was hesitant to even apply… it was too far from home, a huge body of water that I wouldn’t know where to begin, and could I even handle the guests?! Something inside of me made me go, something to this day I can’t explain. It was just something I had to do…So I put my life on hold, and away I went. After three flights and a quick boat trip across the most gorgeous river I had even laid my eyes on, I realized that in fact my life wasn’t on hold, it was just starting! All I can say now after having worked up there, is that I had never experienced a place like Great Slave lake before. This body of water is truly breathtaking accompanied by some of the most gorgeous natural scenery around. This place makes me so proud to be Canadian and most of us have never even seen it. I like to call it “the closest thing to my heaven on earth”. I can’t tell you how many days we caught over 100 fish in a day, but I can tell you I remember all the giants that graced me with their presence and left me with yet another picture of a giant lake trout or grayling for my huge scrapbook, that until working there was only one tenth the size it is now. I spent three seasons up there from 2006 to 2008 as a guide and now work for one of the largest tackle manufacturing companies designing lures and tackle. Now every summer I find myself looking out my office window daydreaming I was still in that boat at Frontier watching my guests smile and laugh as they land yet another fish and complain how sore their arms are. I owe a lot to that lodge and Great Slave lake, it definitely changed me from a boy into the man I am today. If you haven’t gone to Frontier before, you owe it to yourself to experience something like this, a trip up there is truly magical. And for those of you that have already travelled up there, we both know you’re probably already planning yet another trip to the lodge.

This place will change you!
