Stunning Arctic Char on the Tree River with Reid Stoyberg
The Tree River has the biggest arctic char in the world. The world record arctic char came from a short stretch of river the comes from the arctic ocean about 7 miles to an impassible set of falls. Reid Stoyberg from Red Deer is just finishing up his second year of guiding with Plummer's Lodge. Reid has spent lots of time with our fly tying club sharing flies and stories about his guiding experiences. Reid has taken several trips from Great Bear Lake up to the Tree River with guests this summer. As the guiding season comes to a close in the north, the char, especially the males turn incredible colours. The Tree River is heaven on earth for a fly fisherman!
