Eastern Canada

Since the early 1900s, anglers have journeyed to the historic rivers of Canada’s east coast in search of the legendary Atlantic salmon. Fly fishing in Canada originated in the maritime provinces, and today, anglers still make the pilgrimage to historic rivers like the Miramichi and the Cascapedia. However, in more recent years new fishing areas have opened up in Eastern Canada, bringing fresh fishing grounds to the modern fly angler.

Eastern Canada can be divided into two main fly fishing areas: the mainland, which includes Labrador and Quebec, and the Maritimes, where the majority of the fishing happens in New Brunswick and Newfoundland. In addition to Atlantic salmon, Eastern Canada also offers incredible fishing for arctic char, brook trout, and striped bass. These fish have become popular targets over the last few decades – and for good reason. Arctic char are known to be the toughest pound for pound fighters of all salmonids, moreover, the brook trout in Labrador and Northern Quebec get big! A ten pound brook trout, which eagerly take dry flies is not the type of fish that you want to miss!

With so much history and amazing fishing to be done in the area, river access and fishing rights are ferociously protected. Let us help you find the right lodges and outfitters to make your stay in eastern Canada a success!
