Test your angling skills at one of the most remote lodges in North America, accessible only by air.

The fresh run of Atlantic salmon begins around the first week in August and continues until the end of September. The occasional black salmon, landlocked arctic char and northern pike, and an abundance of brook trout and lake trout are present all season.
While it is well-known that Atlantic Salmon populations have declined in many regions in recent years, the runs observed on the George River in 2016, 2017 and 2018 have produced more large salmon, and in greater quantities than the 30 previous seasons.
Sustainable and ethical Atlantic salmon fishing practices are at the forefront of every fishing expedition at Wedge Hills Lodge. The thrill of hooking this aggressive “king of the river” on a fly rod is almost as satisfying as feeling the power in its tail as it is released back into the depths.
