Cambridge Bay’s Inuinnaqtun name is Iqaluktuuttiaq — a good fishing place. Get out fishing. Contact one of Cambridge Bay’s outfitters ahead of time and line something up, or just ask around at the Visitor’s Centre in the community if you didn’t have much time to prepare for the trip.
Bill Lyall, the B & J Flyfishing Adventures’Owner:
“My desire is to share this beautiful land of ours, its people, culture, traditional heritage, scenery and natural splendour with others. The superb fishing in our rivers and lakes should be an absolute delight and a great challenge to any dedicated sport fisherman.”
