Gander River Outfitters, Newfoundland

Gander River Tours provides salmon fishing from late June to mid August with a fall hook and release program for Atlantic Salmon. The autumn colors of the mixed hardwood forest fascinates most nature-lovers as they engage in some of Newfoundland's best Sportfishing. There is a high run of Atlantic Salmon over the last few years. The average run on a low year is 15,000 while the run can exceed 24,000 on a good year. There are average size salmon of 4 to 7 pounds with many being hooked and released 10 pounds and over. Our guide will place you directly over a pool and you may fish from the boat. The waters are easily accessed for both the young and old, experienced and non-experienced. The lodge is located ten miles down the scenic Gander River, also Gander International Airport is just a short drive from our departure points. Our professional fishing and hunting guides will accompany you through a run of tranquil steadies, white water shoots, and beautiful scenery which entails a natural wilderness wonder. Our luxurious accommodations will make your stay even more rewarding as you take part in a hunting and/or fishing excursion of a lifetime.

Gander River Tours also offers spring baited bear hunt groups of three to four per hunt. The success rate is averaging 50%. In the fall we offer moose-bear hunting combinations. Our success rate for moose hunting has consistently averaged 90%. We were one of the first outfitters in Newfoundland to specialize in Black Bear hunts. Hunting the Gander River area of Newfoundland can go from easy physical hunt to a more vigorous hunt depending on your physical conditions or limitations. We have outpost camps for one or two night stays which are only accessible by air.

Our company offers a quality hunting and fishing experience from our licensed camp on the lower Gander River. Angling has been very good and stock counts have shown that our salmon population has increased to annual runs averaging 25,000 fish since 1992. The outlook for the next season is excellent and we have had a multi-year salmon plan announced which will allow us a bag limit of up to 6 fish. This has made the Gander River an attractive fishing destination for anglers from across North America and as far away as Australia and South Africa. We are listed in the latest Sports Afield "North America's Greatest Fishing Lodges" on page 277 and have also just been listed in the Fly Fishing, the Big Game Hunting and the Freshwater Angling editions of "Picked-by-You Guides". These listings were earned through client surveys and cannot be purchased.

Hunting has also been very good and stock counts on Eastern Moose and Black Bear have shown that our big game population has increased. The big game counts are up all over North Eastern Newfoundland and have resulted in an excellent outlook for the next hunting season. Many of our guests have become repeat visitors to our camp. The camp has a capacity of 12 rods for fishing or up to 6 hunters and is reached by riverboat from Gander Bay.  We provide ground transportation to and from the Gander Airport for clients who arrive by air and for those clients who chose to drive, we will provide detailed instructions on where to meet us.
