The Story

Go fly-fishing in Labrador, Canada, and stay at Orvis-endorsed Three Rivers Lodge. Why Labrador? Why Three Rivers Lodge? Labrador is legendary for its incredible, unsullied, cold water fisheries. The brook trout species originated in this area and reaches its maximum potential in these waters. At TRL, a guest will never see another angler on the water, no other boats, no camps, no docks—only your partner, your guide and the next "rattle." Labrador offers the adventurous angler a true wilderness experience, isolated from the world, fishing streams that are unchanged since the last glaciers melted.

Three Rivers Lodge provides a safe and comfortable opportunity for the keen angler to be immersed in a free-flowing world, unscathed by civilization. We love it here. You will too!

Guests stay in private cabins, double occupancy, each cabin having a private full bathroom, bedroom(s), a sitting room with wood stove, and a front porch for wet gear and sunsets. Dining lodge seats guests at one large table and has sitting room for after-meal conversations, drinks, and fly tying.

Season:

Mid-June through September 7

Species:

Brook trout, northern pike, Arctic charr (fly-out), lake trout, and, in season, land-locked salmon (fly-out).

Region/Terrain:

Labrador is a true, unsullied wilderness. The flora and fauna are worth the trip to these hinterlands. Trophy fish are the lure but far from the total experience.

Typical Weather:

Day temps average 65 F, nighttime 45 F. Weather can come in quickly and we have had the occasional snow in all three summer months.

Rates:

Rates start from: $4,650 to $6,650 plus 15% HST.

Other:

What is my destination airport?
Guests must travel to Wabush, NL via Air Canada or Provincial Airlines (PAL). Our hospitality lady in Wabush will meet all guests at the airport upon their arrival and take care of all transfers during their stay.

Is there a manager or owner in camp through the summer?
Kevin Barry, camp manager for seventeen years, is first in and last out each summer. The managing partner also spends his summers in camp.

How bad are the bugs?
Biting insects are rarely an issue while on the water. While walking in the woods, however, guests need to be prepared with bug shirts or head nets and repellent with deet.

Is your trout fishing in still or moving waters?
Our fly fishing for brook trout is all in moving waters'the streams, feeder creeks, and main rapids of the Woods River System. We also regularly visit many other Labrador river systems via float plane to fish for landlocked salmon and Arctic char. We are primarily a wade-fishing operation. All moving water is 'fly fishing only'.

Our 'flat' water, a vast number of lakes and broad reaches in our river system, are full of lake trout and northern pike, accessed by Lund Alaskans and fished with either fly gear or spin-cast gear

What percentage of your business is repeat clients?
Our repeat business varies from year to year, but averages 50%.

Are your guides qualified?
Three Rivers Lodge guides are all from Newfoundland or Quebec and are trained as required in CPR and First Aid. Each guide is licensed with the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and is certified in small boat handling. Our guides, all long-term employees, are full of yarns and lore and enrich each of our guest's experiences.

Do you have internet and/or cell service?
We are much to far from civilization to have cell service in camp. We do, however, have satellite internet and phone services guests are welcomed to use.

What is the daily fishing schedule?
Fishing begins immediately after the 7:00 a.m. breakfast gathering and continues through the day until angling parties return for dinner at 7:00 p.m. Local area fishing is available after dinner should any guests request it.

Is Three Rivers Lodge a good place for novice fly anglers?
Our staff and guides are all seasoned fly anglers and quality instruction is available at any time during guests' stay. Our rivers are fertile and pristine and abound with fish, giving learning anglers far better than average opportunities to 'get lucky'.

How difficult is the wading?
Labrador's rivers are rock-strewn, freestone streams and wading these waters can be a challenge for all but the fit angler. We encourage all guests to stay within their own limits, use high-quality wading boots and wading staffs, and only take what the rivers offer. Our guides will float or pull freighter canoes through the rapids to give our guests excellent access to riffles and runs should guests be at all apprehensive about wading the waters.

Is this the Labrador camps where John Gierach fishes?
Yes indeed. John has fished with us since 2001 and has written of his many Labrador adventures in his books and in his FR&R and "Trout" columns.

Additional Activities:

Canoeing, hiking, bird study, reading.

Meals at TRL are all you had hoped for—ample, home-cooked, and presented by two fine ladies with pride, morning and evening. Shore lunches to order each day. Guests order their preferred alcohol beverages and camp provides water, juices, milk, coffee, and tea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST WOW! I was fortunate to get a last minute opportunity to spend a week at the Three Rivers Lodge in August 2019. I have to say that for a lodge that is located +100 miles from any sort of civilization, they have an amazing lodge with full amenities. The staff work are focused on making sure that your stay is comfortable. Oh yea, the food is pretty amazing also. Even better than the lodging and food are the wonderful staff that keep the lodge going and the guides. If you want to have the chance to experience a lodge in the middle of true wilderness and have the chance at trophy brook trout, I strongly recommend TRL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where Dreams Come True There is no friendlier nor finer fishing lodge anywhere period end of story. Have been there twice and was just looking to go again and they are full so I am crushed. Best people anywhere,fantastic fishing for brook trout with a serious chance at that lifetime trophy. Lake trout ,char and pike and an occasional salmon are there also but Robin and his crew are what makes this place go. If you have brook trout on the brain just go here and purge yourself but I can tell you now that you wont be able to get this place out of you head so good luck with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of time adventure Being from Western Maine, I have spent much of my life drooling over photos from the golden era of the Rangeley region of Maine when sports were photographed with stringers of five pound trout. Naturally, I always believed I had been born at the wrong time. My recent trip to Three Rivers Lodge in Labrador felt as if I had been transported back in time. I caught trout the size I had only dreamed of. That in itself was worth the price of admission. Beyond this really important point however, is the vast wilderness and the sense of adventure that accompanies such wild places. Labradors rugged terrain is perfect trout habitat. It also adds to the day to day adventure of traveling to the different rivers and rapids where these trout live. The guides are fun and extremely knowledgable. The accommodations and meals are as good as the fishing. The most impressive part of my experience is the diligence with which the outfitter manages and cares for the resource. Never have I seen such reverence and respect for these incredible brook trout. So, for as long as Three Rivers Lodge is there, it's reassuring to know that my kids will have a chance to go back in time and experience that golden era.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Place I had the opportunity to visit Three Rivers this past summer and really enjoyed my stay. The fishing was first rate and the lodge was quite comfortable. Warm fires crackling away when you return from fishing and good food to keep your energy going. A positive experience all around
