Mayflower Inn & Adventures has plenty of activities for you to explore the area. Many of our past visitors have enjoyed the variety of fishing options, as well as some of the natural wonders of the area.
Experience the thrill and excitement of a fishing trip in one of Newfoundland’s greatest frontiers. The cold waters of Northern Newfoundland are excellent for the health of the Atlantic Salmon. These cold temperatures cause the salmon to be extremely lively and aggressive requiring an angler to be vigorous and alert. We have three rivers located on the eastern side of northern Newfoundland, an area that remains unique with old-growth forest that blankets the coastal valleys.
Due to its remoteness, the Northern Peninsula has bountiful stocks of Atlantic salmon found throughout these exhilarating rivers. For many years, Newfoundland has been a secret well kept when it came to fly fishermen knowing the best place to land Atlantic Salmon. Pound for pound, the Atlantic Salmon is one of the strongest fish in the water.
The Fishing season annually opens from the beginning of June until mid September. The best of the fishing is from the last week of June to the end of July.
Commonly known as “brookies” by locals these trout can be exciting and entertaining fishing through either fly-fishing or spin casting. This can be done from shore or by boat. These fish are best found in lakes and can range on average from ½ pound to 1-½ pounds.
Note: All fishing packages can be catch and release.
Underground Salmon Pool
Located at Beaver Brook, which originates from the Long Range Mountains and flows eastward to Canada Bay, witness the natural phenomenon of an Atlantic Salmon river surfacing from an underground cave. Thousands of years of physical weathering and erosion to the limestone rich earth have formed an underground river flow. Continuous water flow has resulted in the widening of the river channel and has created this impressive display, which is home to our prized Atlantic Salmon.
Fish 100 meters from the only known place in the world where Atlantic Salmon swim through an underground river cave to get to their spawning grounds. This extraordinary site has been voted #2 of the Seven Wonders of Newfoundland and Labrador.Book Now
