Your fishing in Newfoundland
- Labrador guide
Take a deep breath when an Atlantic salmon takes the fly. You're in
for a battle of skill against pure instinct. Lake trout, northern pike
and Arctic Char... they're bigger than most tipping the scales at between
10 and 15 pounds. In
general terms Newfoundland outfitters provide some of the best sportfishing
available in the country.
Probably one of the best Arctic Char fishing areas on the globe is in
Labrador, Canada. World record Arctic Char has been reprieved in these
waters and some rivers are literally teeming with this interesting fish.
are very few outfitters in Newfoundland and Labrador that specialize
in just Arctic Char fishing but most do offer Arctic Char fishing as
an add on to Atlantic Salmon or Trout.

certain areas of Labrador large numbers of lake trout are concentrated
in shallow, fast flowing water for most of the season, where they offer
fly-fishermen and light tackle enthusiasts the unusual opportunity to
tangle regularly with 15 to 25 lb. lakers. What is truly astonishing
is the sheer number of large fish. We believe that Labrador offers the
best shallow-water fishing for lake trout in North America. Certain
areas of Newfoundland also offers exciting lake trout fishing.
The hospitality of our people is internationally renowned. Whether you're
staying at one of the fine hotels in St. John's or a small inn at one
of the many outport communities along the shore, you're sure to be pleased.
Our national and provincial parks offer campgrounds for those seeking
a more rustic experience. Whatever your preference, you will enjoy it
asleep to the sound of waves gently rolling against the shore. Wake
up to a shimmering sea and the cries of gulls above the harbour in search
of food. Cook your breakfast over a campfire or enjoy the home cooking
of a fine resort.
Getting to Newfoundland can be an interesting journey. You can drive
and bring your car with you by ferry from North Sidney, Nova Scotia,

of Newfoundland and Labrador destinations on major carriers. Many outfitters
and lodges can arrange pickups and meet you at your point of entry in
Cornerbrook, St. John's or Goose Bay, Labrador.
