The Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) is found in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters all across the northern hemisphere. It grows to an exceptionally large size and is especially abundant in northern Canada and in the clear and unpolluted waters of the Canadian Arctic. Nowhere is the abundance of this much sought after game and food fish greater, and nowhere does it grow to a larger size than in Nunavut’s Kitikmeot region of the Canadian Central Arctic. Superb fishing for Arctic char can be found throughout this vast region, but truly special among hundreds and hundreds of rivers and lakes is the little known Ekaluk River in the Cambridge Bay area of Victoria Island. The Ekaluk is perhaps the most prolific fishery available to the traveling speyfisher today. • • • The camp has only a two-week season for 24 total rods. The overall experience is rare and remarkable; so much more than a fishing trip; an adventure every serious fly-swinger should put on their must-do list.
