For the third consecutive year, Great Slave Lake has been named one of the nine best ice fishing destinations in Canada by FishingBooker, a large online platform for booking fishing trips.

The main appeal of ice fishing on Great Slave Lake, according to a FishingBooker news release, is that “you can do it almost all year round,” which means “you can still enjoy fishing through the ice without bearing the extreme temperatures and dark days that are common around here in the depths of winter.” The lake is also home to popular species like northern pike, Arctic grayling, walleye, and whitefish, the release noted.

Great Slave Lake was joined on FishingBooker’s list by destinations in British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. It is the only destination on the list to appear three years in a row.
