Treat yourself and up to 3 of your friends and family to a special day of Guided fly-in fishing on a remote lake only accessible by floatplane. 

Our goal is to provide you with the unique experience of a fly-in day fishing trip where all of the logistics have been well thought through and taken care of for you.  You do not need to be a pro fisherman to enjoy and take full advantage of spending a beautiful day in the remote wilderness.  Although you may choose to bring your own gear, each trip has been equipped and setup in such a way that you only need to bring your personal items, snacks, appropriate clothing for the day, and a fishing licence.

Your floatplane charter will depart at (8:00am) in the morning from Yellowknife’s back bay and fly you approximately 51 kms (33 statute miles) north to the Gin Family’s, Yellow Dog Lodge located in the solitude of the Northern Canadian wilderness of the Northwest Territories at Davis Channel between Duncan and Graham Lakes.  The flight takes 18-20 minutes. We are proud to be Yellow Dog Lodge’s premier aviation partner providing transportation between Yellowknife and the Lodge onboard our floatplane fleet consisting of two DHC-2 Beavers and one Cessna 185.

We strongly believe that your flights with Ahmic Air should be enjoyable and a distinct part of your Northern Canadian vacation; we aim to provide more than just a “seat” and to make your experience on our aircraft fun, memorable and safe.  Our pilots have a strong bond with their aircraft and are more than happy to answer any of your questions throughout your flights.

On your arrival to Yellow Dog Lodge you will be met by your guides who are known for providing a down-home level of hospitality while providing a safe and comfortable experience on the water.  You will find your guides to be very personable, knowledgeable about the equipment, waterways, and the behaviour and habits of the local fishery; all of these characteristics will provide beginners through to experienced anglers with an enhanced day on the water.  Yellow Dog Lodge has been endorsed as a Canadian Signature Experience by Destination Canada and is known for being the best little lodge north of 60.

After spending the morning fishing, it's time to enjoy a key essential part of any northern fishing trip, the “Shore Lunch”!  Sit back and enjoy this time with friends and family on the shoreline of a pristine lake while your guides entertain you and prepare a meal of freshly caught fish straight from the lake cooked over an open fire with all of the camp fix’ns.  You will be hard spent trying to duplicate the flavours of fresh fish cooked and served in the wild even if you do talk your guides into sharing their secret dredger recipes.

After lunch there will be the opportunity for some more fishing or if you would like you can head back to Davis Inlet early to enjoy some of the comforts of the lodge.  The lodge is licensed and the lounge has a full bar service where soda pop, bottled water, beer, wine, spirits, and munchies are all available for purchase.

Your plane will leave Yellowknife at 4:00pm to pick you up, providing time to load and taxi the aircraft at Yellow Dog Lodge you should expect to be returned to Yellowknife at about 5:00pm; in time to get back to your home, to your hotel or campsite, freshen up after a long day and get yourself ready to enjoy your evening plans.  Expect to return well fed, rested and tired at the same time after a full day of adventure and fresh air.


Our Booking software treats your booking as a “return” flight booking which means that you must select your departure and return dates even though they are on the same day and that you must also book the time of your departure flight and return flight in the appropriate fields when prompted to do so.

Start your online booking under the “Start Booking Now” tab by first entering the number of people in your party, then make sure that the “return” option has been selected, before entering dates for your departure and return flights dates.  Once this information has been entered you will receive a different prompt and screen to select the time of your departure flight, and a second screen, to select your return flight time.  From this point it should be pretty straight forward to complete billing, contact and payment information.

If you have any difficulties with the booking please contact us by email or telephone and we will assist you with the booking.
