Atlantic Salmon Fishing
Flowing into Gander Bay on Newfoundland's northeast coast, the 37 mile long Gander River boasts returns of 25,000 Atlantic salmon each spring. The majority of this pristine wilderness is only accessible by river boat and Gander River Outfitters and Lodge is right at the heart of it. Our skilled and seasoned guides have spent many years learning the rocks and rips that are located throughout the river's many rattles and steadies.
With some of the highest-producing pools on the river within a short boat ride from the lodge, we are certain your trip will be an unforgettable success. During the main salmon run, as many as 175 fish per hour have been counted right in front of the lodge. While the highest concentration of Atlantic salmon runs occurs between June 15th and July 15th, the Gander also receives mid-summer and fall runs of mainly larger salmon and jacks. No matter what the season, fishing on the mighty Gander is incomparable.
The Gander River boasts excellent salmon fishing conditions all season long. Our main season runs from June – October, with regular runs in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. Our staff makes every effort to accommodate an experience that will be tailor-made to your group’s needs. Our 6-day Package is designed to ensure the best possible salmon fishing experience for you and your group - whether you’re brand new to salmon fishing, or an old pro!
