The Selwyn Lake record is a 56 pound Lake Trout.                                                                In June - Northern Pike spawn and are very active while Lake Trout are feeding in shallow water along reefs and rocky shorelines. Typical daily catches are approximately 20 to 40 fish per guest per day, at random weights topping out at 20 to 32lbs.In July - Arctic Grayling activity picks up the end of July and into August. Northern Pike are brisk in early July, averaging 15 to 30 per guest per day. During July and into August the Northern Pike fishing is constant. Lake Trout are slow in early July as they move from shallow to deeper water throughout the month. By the end of July, Lake Trout begin to find their summer depth and catch ratios are approximately 20 fish per guest per day.

In August, Arctic Grayling are still active and fishing remains steady. The Northern Pike fishing tapers down, but their size increases as they feed in preparation for the winter. Lake Trout are at their maximum depth (over 100 feet) and can be caught as frequently as 50 per guest per day. Trophy fish in the 20 and 30 pound range are most common at this time of year.                                                                                   For anglers seeking a thrilling fly-out fishing experience, day excursions from Selwyn Lake Lodge are offered.
