We fish the world for fresh and saltwater species and recognize the tremendous value of this Labrador resource as well as the soul enriching benefits that are fostered at this wilderness paradise. This river had been practically exclusive from 1964-2010. Considerable investment in conservation and science along with plenty of patience has increased Atlantic salmon returns fourfold since acquiring the Hunt River Lodge in 2010.

The Fishing

16 km of river is accessible from the lodge via river canoes. The lower section from the Lodge to First Falls hosts 8 pools and the upper section above First Falls to Hunt Lake hosts 21 identified pools.


Science & Conservation

A catch and release policy was introduced on the Hunt River upon the commencement of the 2012 angling season. In 2014 Atlantic Rivers and LOOP entered into a collaboration with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to conduct baseline migration, redd densities, rearing habitat, and catch & release studies.

Hunt River Lodge is located in northeastern Labrador Canada, approximately 246 kilometers north of the nearest paved commercial airport of Goose Bay (YYR). The Inuit village of Hopedale (YHO) is 31 kilometers to the southeast and has a 750 meter gravel airstrip.

Access to the Lodge is via a 1.0-hour flight in DHC-6 Twin Otter floatplane. Helicopter charters to the Lodge are also available at additional cost. Please enquire if helicopter transportation is a preference.

Commercial flights to and from Goose Bay are available on a daily basis. Changeover times will generally be organized around the tides at the Hunt River estuary and as close to midday as to allow inbound guests to arrive in Goose Bay in the morning and for outbound guests to depart on evening flights.

Pending flight schedules, guests may have to overnight in Goose Bay, St. John’s or Halifax on the inbound or outbound legs.
