Mary's Harbour Salmon Fishing
If you are staying in Mary's Harbour you will quickly see there is a river running right into the Harbour.
At certain times of the year this is a very good place to catch a salmon on a rod. You can try directly under the bridge but there is a falls in the river further.
What you have to do is go to the airport and then walk to the end of the runway. From there you will see a path bringing you to the falls. Your chances of success here are better.
Be sure to have your tags and liscence though because it's also one of the easist places to get caught illegally fishing!
Equipment: Rod and flies.
Be respectful of local laws
When the news was first broken in southeastern Labrador that a road would be built most people where very excited.
However many others including the aboriginal Metis population worried about the easy access to the rivers in this region now with a road.
It was a very legitimate concern as this year was once very remote to the outside world. As you drive along the highway today you will see some signage asking that you put smaller fish species back in the water.
It's best you do that for the preservation of the salmon and trout in these rivers.
Lodge Bay Salmon Fishing
Right along the highway the first community you will hit in southeastern Labrador is Lodge Bay.
As you can see from the picture they have a beautiful river running into the Bay. It's another popular place to try for a salmon on a fly road.
Once again though be sure to have all your proper documentation!!!
