By far my favourite and most memorable family trip to date! The scenery is amazing and the staff is very accommodating and make you feel like family. Yellow Dog is not just about the fishing; it’s a place were you can laugh, relax and enjoy the people around you. I highly recommend Yellow Dog Lodge to anyone and believe everyone... More

There is nothing like communing with nature to set your compass back on true course. Of course the delish shore lunch, catching a personal best and hanging out with family are pretty good side dishes too!

Cool review Rory. I am looking forward to 2016. Your sister is thinking of joining us in the fall with her husband. I am looking forward to taking them to Graham and Duncan lakes for fishing and shore lunch; and to get them to experience the Aurora from the hot tub. Maybe they will bring their drone to capture some... More

I went on my first ever fishing trip with a couple buddies and it was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The lodge, staff, layout, amenities, food well exceeded expectations. Gord and the crew were incredibly knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure we had the trip of a lifetime. There is not one... More

Thanks Joey. We had a fun time too. Danny's friends are always welcome. It was great to see you guys sitting on our dock catching some trout, laid back and enjoying the sunshine and each other's company. I saw the photos and videos. Nice job! Lots of big pike. Cheers More

Seeing the Northern Lights has been on my bucket list for many years. After months of research I chose Yellowknife and then after looking at all my options I chose the Yellow Dog Lodge because it was in the middle of nowhere and it had great reviews. Everything great I read about the lodge was right on. Five of us... More

This was my 3rd visit to the Yellow Dog Lodge. We had an amazing time. The last two times I was there it was July (24 hours of sunlight) but this time it was August and I was able to photograph the Aurora.

Just spent 4 amazing days and 3 nights at the Lodge with a group of ladies. If you are looking for: - awesome fishing (with knowledgeable guides) - amazing staff - fantastic food - great scenery & relaxation - little bit of everything Than look no further as YDL is the place, no disappointments here

Yellow Dog Lodge was one of the best family vacations! I do not enjoy fishing, nor did I once cast a line to catch a fish during this trip, and I still had the best time!

Fishing isn't just for the guys. Ladies, there is plenty to do for the whole family. Our family group of 19, ages 6 to 60 had plenty to do. Hiking, hot tub, steam room, fishing canoeing or just enjoying the view. The best part for me was the amazing meals and I didn't have to do anything. The shore lunch... More
