Riverkeep Lodge can provide customers with rod, reels, flies, and other equipment with advance notice.
The Atikonak River is a large river with endless potential. Guests can fish right out of our boats or wade along the shoreline.
The weather in Labrador can change by the hour. Daylight in July is long, with the sun setting around 10:30 pm, which allows for long days of fishing.
We offer trips from Saturday to Saturday. The price includes the float plane trips in and out of the lodge, all meals, lodging, boats, guides, and licenses. We can customize shorter or longer trips.
We have 2 guest cabins. One is a 3-bedroom/2-bath cabin and the other is a 1-bedroom/1-bath cabin. All your meals are included in your package, along with guides, boats, and licenses.
We have 5 species of fish in our river. Landlocked salmon, brook trout, whitefish, lake trout, and pike.
Guests should pack all necessary gear for fly fishing, including clothing you can layer as the weather can be unpredictable. They should bring their own rods, reels, flies, etc.
Q. What airport should I fly into?
A. Guests fly into Wabush/Labrador City and should be in town the Friday night prior to heading into the lodge. We provide transportation to and from the airport and hotel. Gratuities are generally 10 to 15% of the trip cost.
