My son Jamie and I attended blachford lake lodge for our third time for father and son fishing trip. The e mail exchange with Kate and Alice made our planning very easy. We were first met at the float plane base by John who gave us a yellowknife fishing spoon. That was a very nice touch to start our visit. Thanks John. Upon our arrival on site after our plane ride we were welcomed by Sarah the manager and the friendly volonteers carefully selected for their friendlyness. The fishing was great catching many 20-25 pounds lake trout, 30 pound pike and many walleye. The lodge chef was nice to cook our walleye for supper for all to enjoy. We enjoyed all our stays at blachford and can t wait to be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Blachford Lake Lodge, a family run business for over 30 years, is the only fly-in wilderness resort situated on Blachford Lake (60 miles south-east of Yellowknife). The 25-minute bush plane flight from Yellowknife is often considered as one of the highlights of a trip to Blachford. We pride ourselves on complimenting your northern experience with great food, a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and dedicated customer service. Our winter season (January to April) offers great opportunities to watch the aurora (northern lights), to go snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking, ice-fishing or simply to relax in the hot tub.Our summer season (June to October) offers great fishing. Canoe or kayak under the midnight sun (June/July) or hike one of the many nature trails. By late summer (mid August) the aurora becomes more visible again and one can watch the northern lights being reflected in the water. Anytime, feel royally when you follow the paths that William and Kate walked during their Royal visit at Blachford Lake Lodge in July 2011. ... more less
