Guided Fishing Trip Destinations | Wildside Adventures

Few places in the Canadian north combine such a variety of freshwater fishing with all the comforts of home. Located near the 60th parallel in northwest Saskatchewan, Lake Athabasca is the largest lake in the province and is recognized as one of the “Big Fish” waters of the world. Whether you’re after Trophy Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, huge Northern Pike, Whitefish, or Walleye, you’ll find them all here. Cliff and Stella Blackmur have been providing anglers with this comforts of home approach to fishing for over 30 years and man do they! Their list of “repeat customers” is staggering–many of which book their trip for the following year upon checkout. That is quite the compliment!

CANADA – Aylmer Lodge

Whether you are interested in trophy lake trout fishing in the northern barren-ground region of the Northwest Territories, nature photography, canoeing remote arctic rivers, eco-tourism, or wildlife viewing, Aylmer Lake Lodge can offer you the best in a Canadian wilderness experience.

Aylmer Lake Lodge, located 227 air miles northeast of Yellowknife, is just now becoming discovered as a destination of choice for trophy lake trout, and arctic grayling fishing. Few anglers have been fortunate to fish these pristine waters, and the big lake trout are guaranteed to stress your fishing tackle.

Overlooking Rocknest Bay near the Thanakoie Narrows (a wide river system separating Aylmer and Clinton Colden lakes), the Lodge is ideally situated for the guest wishing to explore or fish this expansive body of water. Both lakes combined stretch over 80 miles in length, and have only begun to be explored for their trophy fishing potential. The water in the lakes is so clear that you can watch huge lake trout swimming 15 feet below the surface.

CANADA – Igloo Lake Lodge

Since 1973 Igloo Lake Lodge has been offering all-inclusive speckled brook trout fly-fishing in the unspoiled wilds of beautiful remote Labrador, Canada. The remote location makes it an adventure just to reach the lodge. There are daily flights to Goose Bay from select locations in the United States and Canada. From Goose Bay, guests will then hop aboard our local twin-engine air carriers for a scenic flight over this remote backcountry region.

CUBA – Avalon Cuban Fishing Centers

Wildside Joe's Avalon Outdoors Cuban Fishing Trips 2024-2025

Fly fishing in Cuba is far different from other destinations in the Caribbean. Only in recent years has this flats fishery been developed, and you are fishing waters that have not seen sport fishing for nearly fifty years. Cuba has given these pristine areas protection as Cuban National Marine Parks, where no commercial fishing is allowed other than for lobster. Flats fish like Tarpon, Permit, Bonefish, Snook, Mutton Snapper, Barracuda, and a variety of Jacks are found in incredible numbers and since the fishing pressure is so light in these areas the fish rarely encounter sport fishermen and are unusually easy to catch.

MEXICO – Campeche Tarpon

Campeche offers some of the finest and most consistent fishing for baby tarpon that you can found in the Caribbean. We give you the opportunity to target juvenile tarpon in the 6 to 25 pound range with floating lines. The fishery is a huge network of mangrove lagoons, flats and creeks that begin immediately north of the city, running along the coast for more than 120 kilometers all the way to the small fishing village of Isla Arena.  We offer a variety of lodging opportunities from a newly renovated house, to several beautiful hotel choices right in the city.  You will get an opportunity to experience the local cuisine at one of the many restaurants in the old town.

PENNSYLVANIA – Keystone Connection

Fall in Western Pennsylvania is truly a special time of the year. Most people think of putting on the orange and heading to the woods for some Pheasant or Grouse hunting, not Jeff Knapp. He dawns his windbreaker, assortment of rods and reels and his jet boat for day on the Allegheny River. Just about an hour north of Pittsburgh, the Keystone Connection Guide Service offers some of the finest Smallmouth Bass Fishing you will ever see. 40-60 fish on a nice fall day is not uncommon.

Jeff is also a seasoned outdoor writer that stays current on the latest tactics for smallmouth and largemouth bass, walleye, and muskie. His need for recent photos, and new material for publication, keeps him on par with the most successful angling techniques and choices of locations.

MONTANA – Renegade Fly Fishing Outfitters

Located in Missoula, Montana lives Eric Ederer owner and main guide of the Renegade Fly Fishing Outfitters. Eric has been guiding the waters of western Montana for over 25 years with a passion for fly fishing second to none. I was lucky enough to spend a few days with Eric fishing the Clark Fork River and Georgetown Lake with some unbelievable results.  In just a short time, we experienced everything from a Blonde Black Bear to a hail storm in July! And the fishing,,Wow is all I can say. After about 50 trout between the two of us, we quit counting and that was only our first day! The second day was spent on the legendary Clark Fork River after some really aggressive wild Brown Trout. This was a whole new experience for me casting and recasting several times at the same small target while on the drift all day long. The fishing was very tactical, but the results were the reward!
