On Top Fly Shop and Headwaters 2 Ocean (H2O) Troutfitter combine to provide unique fly-fishing adventures in Southern Yukon. From guiding groups and individuals to prime angling locations, to outreach and education, to constant online and in-person advice on the intricacies of fly-fishing in the waters around Whitehorse, the store and tour service provide a hub of activity for fishing enthusiasts.
Like many outdoor adventure activities, fishing is part of local culture and a major economic engine in the territory. The Yukon offers lake trout, northern pike, Arctic grayling, rainbow trout and salmon, with some prime angling sites accessible easily by car and others found in secluded, fly-in locations.
Outfitters like H2O help build this community with events, courses, online updates on fishing conditions, and emergency medical training. H2O’s Steve Hahn is not only an accomplished wilderness fly angler with both the single and double hand rod, but also a certified Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician-Paramedic and Certified Flight Registered Nurse, with over 15 years of remote medical and rescue experience.
