Three Rivers Lodge

Three Rivers Lodge is an Orvis endorsed wilderness fly fishing camp located deep in the Labrador bush. This region is home to the productive Woods River system which harbors some of the largest wild brook trout on the planet. Anglers visiting the lodge access numerous fisheries in the Woods River system by float plane and local access. Although the massive brook trout are the main attraction at the lodge, anglers may also target other species such as landlocked salmon, pike and arctic char. Guests enjoy great meals and comfortable accommodations in the main camp and also have the option to fly out to the remote outpost camp midway through the trip. This remote fishery is vast and the fishing pressure is non-exhistant outside of lodge guests. The short season from mid June to late August ensures trout see few flies. For anglers looking for a unique wilderness camp or for those looking to catch huge brook trout over 5lbs this should definitely be on your bucket list!

Fishing

The Woods River system offers a remote wilderness fly fishing setting. With over 100 miles of water to explore along the main river and a huge variety of tributary streams there is an incredible amount of water to explore. Guests can also opt to fly out to some other systems to target arctic char as an option at added cost at certain times of the year. The world's largest wild brook trout are the main attraction for guest visiting the lodge with fish averaging 3-4 pounds and trout up to 10 pounds possible. The remote fisheries are access via motor boat, canoe, float plane and at times 4 wheel drive vehicles. Guests will receive two days of fly out fishing during a week in camp and may opt for more at added cost. Flying out each day is not required for great fishing as Three Rivers is the only lodge in the region but fly-outs do give guests a chance to catch unique species such as landlocked salmon or arctic char. 

Brook trout fishing techniques very over the course of the short season which lasts from mid June through August. Dry fly fishing can be exceptional over strong hatches at times. At other times stripping streamers can produce aggressive strikes from some of the largest fish. 

Accommodations

Main Camp:
TRL has a series of private guest cabins; one four-person cabin with two private bedrooms and two private bathrooms; three two-person cabins, each with a private bathroom, bedroom and a sitting room with refrigerator and wood stove. They are largely built from traditional native materials - log rafters and paneled walls – and exude the warmth and mood of time-honored sporting camps. Each cabin is comfortable and tight against insect intrusion. Boardwalks connect all of the cabins to the cook lodge, the docks and to each other.  Without exception, our accommodations have exceeded all of our visitors' expectations.

5th Rapids Camp:
Guests can opt to spend two days fishing in the remote 5th rapids area of the Woods River by taking advantage of the outpost camp. When basing out of the Outpost camp you will have access to the productive middle of the river between rapids 3 and 8 while spending a night in an old trappers hand-hewn log cabin. Enjoy the stone fireplace, comfortable seating and magical sunsets.

Guests can expect well-planned hearty meals when staying at the lodge or visiting the Outpost camp. Breakfasts are at 7:00am each morning before fishing. Lunches are on the river each day while fishing. Evenings are spent back at the lodge or Outpost cabin enjoying home cooked meals, fresh baked bread and a warm fire.
