The Trip to Park Lake
Upon landing at the newly renovated Goose Bay International Airport in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff and escorted to your hotel. On the day of your departure to the lodge, we will also pick you up at your hotel. Pending the time of year you are visiting us, we will either then drive you to Otter Creek Sea Base or escort you to our Hangar/Office on 5 Wing Goose Bay Military Base, where an experienced pilot and land crew will be eagerly awaiting to assist you with your baggage and provide you with a safe and smooth flight to Park Lake Lodge. The trip is 62 air miles south east of Goose Bay and will only take about 30-40 minutes to get there.
Speckled brook trout in outstanding numbers ranging in size up to seven pounds is the reason for our being. We employ a fly-fishing only policy using flies of all description; because of the abundance of speckled trout we insist that anglers crimp the barbs on their hooks, to enable easier release of the fish minimizing potential damage to the fish stock. Catch and release is standard practice; retention of two(2) fish per angler is our lodge policy.
Generally fishing is done from boats but fishing may be done from shore. The later in the season one fishes the Park Lake watershed, the more prolific the fishing is in the rivers and streams rather than the main lake. Anglers should trust to their guides' knowledge of the system to know where to go and when.
In addition to speckled trout, t View more...he Park Lake watershed contains an abundant number of Northern Pike. For the Pike fisherman, our guides would be more than happy to take you to their favorite secluded areas to fish these monster fish ranging in the up-to 25 lbs. category.
Late season (August/September) sees the return of the mighty Atlantic Salmon. The migration of these silver spectacles has them return to the spawning beds in the upper Eagle Park Lake system and provides the anglers with one of the major fresh water fly-fishing challenges that are to be dreamed of. Salmon up to 25 lbs. are routinely caught and released by the ardent fly-fisherman throughout the August and September time period.
