Our lodges on the Grey River system provide some of the finest Canadian Fly Fishing for Atlantic Salmon available anywhere.  Their tremendously remote locations have helped to maintain healthy stocks of wild sea-run salmon, even in these times when runs worldwide are in a state of uncertainty.  The luxury type lodges and the peaceful atmosphere created by this remoteness serves to greatly enhance the high quality experience we provide.                                            

Our  all fly fishing web site is waiting for your viewing at

The report is now in on a spectacular fly fishing season for 2011   Please check in at Fish News for details of the incredible fly fishing action our guests encountered this summer. 

 Also, check in at  Fishing Photos for a pictorial sample of some of our flyfishing action.

Tony with Besner 10lber.BMP (281966 bytes)Over the 18 years of our operation, guests of Grey River Lodge, including many novice anglers, have achieved very high standards of angling success while pursuing the very elusive Atlantic Salmon. These bright and vibrant fighters are bound to thrill even the most seasoned flyfisher.

Some of the best Canadian Atlantic Salmon Fly Fishing is available adjacent to the lodge, but for those who are more adventurous and interested  in doing some hiking, an unlimited number of excellent pools( many of them as yet unnamed ) await either up or down stream.  Angling can be done by wading or simply standing on the rocky shoreline.                                                      
While regular fly fishing equipment and the standard  salmon flies are recommended, it is the action on dry flies which has most excited anglers at Grey River.  With the very low fishing pressure and the large number of quality pools available, a very relaxed and free fishing timetable exists.   Little wonder our percentage of repeat clients is extremely high.

Our lodge called "The Forks" accepts parties of up to eight anglers, while at our second lodge  "Salmon Brook" ( tributary of the main Grey River ) we generally limit our groups to parties of four in order to better preserve the world class type angling we demand in this smaller water.  We are committed to providing the highest possible quality of fly fishing for all our clients, and this is now taken for granted by most who are familiar  with our operation. 

The standard trip is for five nights at the lodge with parts of six days fishing.  Access is via helicopter directly to the lodge from the helicopter base located just a few minutes drive from the airport at Deer Lake NL.  It is possible to customize our packages to an individual's requests, but early booking will help greatly in this regard.   Derek-Jumper.JPG (45841 bytes)

Over the years, Grey River Lodge has been host to a great many novice fly fishers, almost all of whom managed to land their very first Atlantic salmon under our guidance.  We take great pride in this achievement and issue a very special welcome to all newcomers to the marvelous outdoor sport of fly fishing. To strengthen our commitment to the novice, we have obtained a supply of fly fishing equipment which is available for use at our lodges free of charge to those not yet fully equipped for their trial fly fishing period.   As well, we welcome couples and families at our lodges, who are sure to find our facilities  extremely well suited to their needs.  

Our top notch salmon fishing is unquestionable.  Some say the spectacular locations of our lodges is what sets us apart from others.    But the most frequent compliment from our guests is regarding our tremendous staff and their willingness to do almost anything to ensure total guest satisfaction.

Henry-fish-action-Middle.jpg (382186 bytes)With many of our 2010 fly fishing season guests already reserved for the 2011 season, our schedule is mostly in place.  There are, however, some very good openings still remaining, but don't delay, as they are sure to fill far in advance of the salmon fishing season. 

Come fish with us soon at Grey River Lodge.
