Ten Mile Lake is found 60 air miles north of Whitehorse. The three mile by 1.5 mile lake has very clear water with large shoals which drop off steeply from 40 to 100 feet.
Ten Mile Lake features abundant populations of Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Burbot and Whitefish with Lake Trout being the predominant species. This is a great lake for sight cast fly fishing in early spring.
The 12 x 16 cabin at Ten Mile can sleep four. The camp has two 14′ boats with 9.9 Hp motors.
- Camp change: 1 p.m. Fridays
“Well, how many fish is a tough question because we caught so many. We caught 50 plus lakers every day. One day we kept track and averaged a laker every 5 minutes over three hours. Biggest was maybe 8 pounds. I’m not sure how many pike because they were all incidental catches as we never targeted them — maybe 6 to 8 per day. Largest pike was also aroundeight pounds. A lady from Environment called and asked some questions about our cougar sighting. I was pleased to provide her the limited data we had. That is still something I think about a lot — a real treat. We hope the rest of the season goes well.”
