World Class Fishing,
Triple Trophy Fishing
Kasba Lake and its surrounding watershed are home to northern Canada’s three most prized sportfish: World Class Lake Trout, Giant Northern Pike, and record breaking Arctic Grayling. Thanks to Canada’s first catch-and-release policy, those fish are found in both extraordinary numbers and trophy sizes.
Massive Lake Trout fishing.
Canada’s far north is home to more and bigger lake trout than anywhere else in the world. Kasba sits in the heart of lake-trout country, and its cold, clean, forage-rich waters provide ideal conditions for growing lakers over 50 pounds. Lake trout aren’t just beautiful, they’re also among the most powerful fish in freshwater.
Trophy lake trout of 20 pounds and over are landed on Kasba Lake almost every day of the season. In addition, there’s an astonishing number of fish in the five- to 15-pound range. When targeting these mid-size lakers, 50-fish days are common, and 100-fish days are quite possible. Because the waters of Kasba are so varied, anglers can target lake trout with a wide range of tackle and tactics. Trolling and jigging are most popular, but casting lures or flies can also be very effective.
Trophy sized Northern Pike.
Long, thick and bristling with teeth, northern pike are beloved by anglers for their aggressive attitude and thrashing fights. Thanks to the cold water, these pike stay shallow all season long.
Every year, Kasba guests land hundreds of trophy pike on light tackle and fly gear in shallow bays and creeks, aggressively feeding. They can be sight-fished, and will hit a wide variety of lures and flies. As the summer progresses, the pike begin to patrol endless weedbeds in six to 12 feet of water with plenty of action and trophy size catches all summer long.
Few fish are as strikingly beautiful as the Arctic grayling. Football shaped with an oversize dorsal fin, they boast iridescent colouring ranging from silver to pink to mauve. Adding to their appeal, grayling are found only in the most remote and unspoiled areas of the far north. One of those places is the Kazan River, which tumbles northward out of Kasba Lake.
Across the north, a two-pound grayling is considered a trophy. But at Kasba, it’s hard to catch a grayling under two pounds. Three-pound fish are common, and every year, anglers land fish over four pounds. Even better, these huge grayling inhabit this remote area in staggering numbers. Grayling are also extremely hard fighters, offering exceptional sport on light spinning or fly gear.
