There are lies, darn lies and fishing stories. In the Yukon, fishing is a huge hobby and we’d love to share your big ones, but only if they didn’t get away! Send us the proof of your fishing prowess and we’ll share what you’ve been up to with What’s Up Yukon readers.

And woah there Ahab! Before you go off chasing down your white whale, we remind everyone to fish safely and responsibly. You can find Yukon fishing rules and regulations online at Environment Yukon www.env.gov.yk.ca.

Mike Gustus caught some big Lake Trout this past August in the Southern Lakes area. They ranged from 25 to 46 pounds and were found in Tagish, Atlin and Bennett Lakes.

Mike’s advice? Troll deep, slow and have patience.
