Labrador Wilds Remote Fly-In Angling
Flowers River, nestled within the majestic mountains of north-central Labrador, runs 50 miles inland from Flowers Bay. The surrounding pristine wilderness is a remote fly-in paradise, renowned for its world-class Atlantic salmon and Arctic char fishing. It is the northernmost scheduled salmon river in all of Labrador.
Take advantage of the fantastic fishing here by staying at Flowers River Lodge, a 160-mile plane ride north of Goose Bay. With 40 years experience, Flowers River Lodge provides accommodations, home-cooked meals, professional guides, boats, air (Goose Bay to & from lodge) and ground transportation. The lodge is equipped with modern conveniences you’d find at home, from running hot/cold water, indoor plumbing, electricity (solar powered), a modern kitchen, and even satellite phone connection and high-speed internet.
Atlantic salmon get huge in the Flowers River, averaging between 7-12 lbs, but it’s more than possible to become a part of the 30-pounder club the Lodge celebrates. Char are numerous, and weigh anywhere between 2-6 pounds on average. You can fly fish for salmon up and down the river from a boat or you can walk and wade. Char fishing can also be done from a boat or right from the doorstep of the lodge. July-September are the prime fishing times on Flowers River.
