Newfoundland & Labrador Salmon fishing
I'm going to ramble a bit here so bear with me.
I grew up in Newfie and as a kid I can remember getting on my bike with my brother and grabbing fly rods and heading to the river for some fun. Those days are a distant memory now. Like many Newfies, I moved to Ontario for work when I was young. I met my wife in Ontario and we have a beautiful son and a comfortable lifestyle. I never regret moving away from Newfoundland. My brother moved to Labrador and continued to fish for big Atlantics.
As I worked hard (:>) and raised a family in Ontario, each summer I would hear of his fishing trips to the Caspedia in Quebec and the rivers along the south coast of Labrador. Then back to Central Newfoundland on the Exploits River for more fun and games.
As my son is now a teenager and his parents are no longer cool (embarrising actually), I've had the opportunity to return to Newfoundland and join my brother and my Dad on a couple of fishing trips. Mostly, we've fished Central NF on the mighty Exploits River but this summer we have a trip planned for the Pinware River on the south coast of Labrador. I'm lucky, in that, my brother is very familiar with the local waters and will be our guide for the trip. Having said this, there are local guides and lodges/outfitters available if you are willing to ask/look around. Might even be some other Newfie fly fishers on Spey!
The St.Louis River lodge has a specific luxury clientele and that's fine. However, you can check-off fishing these rivers from your bucket list for much, much, much less than 10G per person (yikes). Good Luck
