Treeline, NWT, Canada
Treeline is a Bathurst Arctic Services camp approximately 150 miles N. of Yellowknife. Formally the site of two gold mines, it is now a service facility used by prospectors for gold and diamonds, and for autumn wildlife and tundra tours. My wife Betty and I were there for the first tour of 2003, 29 Aug - 1 Sept. John and Mercie Franklin, and two daughters, live there most of the year and operate the camp. For our tour, Titus Allooloo, gave guided tours, driving, walking and by deck boat over the area near the camp. Self guided tours were also available, but not recommended because of bears. We also fished for lake trout with success, but caught no grayling. Bathurst A.S. operates other camps for fishing. Bathurst Inlet Lodge is a facility operated in the summer.
