Season: June – early September
The Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland has some of the world’s finest fishing rivers with species such as Brook Trout, Arctic Char, and Atlantic Salmon (being the main catches).
A typical salmon fishing season will begin as the salmon return to our rivers in late June and run until early September. During these months, our rivers are literally teeming with salmon. The lodge provides the best platform from which to put your angling skills to the test, putting you, our guest at the heart of the action.
Our guides are avid fishermen who are keen to show you the best fishing spots and to assist in landing that salmon. Guests at Tuckamore Lodge have a superb record of successful fishing trips. If you’d prefer to catch and release, the guides of the lodge can assist with the correct handling of the fish to ensure its safe return to the water.
The lodge is situated in Main Brook on the Northern Peninsula – the number one salmon and trout fishing destination in Newfoundland.
We are pleased to offer you luxury first-class, Scandinavian style accommodations in the heart of the Newfoundland wilderness, coupled with some of the highest quality outdoor experiences in Atlantic Canada.
