Trophy Brook Trout

Newfoundland and Labrador is home to the best brook trout angling on the planet. It's the land of big fish - where anglers routinely catch and release two- to five-pound trout in search of a seven- or eight-pound trophy (or larger in Labrador). They're wild and ready for a fight.

Outfitters

The key to an amazing and successful angling adventure in Newfoundland and Labrador is using an outfitter. Outfitters act as your main point of contact before and during your trip, so be prepared to make long-lasting memories - and friends.

Their experienced, knowledgeable guides know all the secret spots and best flies to use, which means you're in for the angling vacation of a lifetime. And, chances are, you'll come away with the big one and even bigger memories.

In the video above, listen to Gord talk about fishing brook trout. And be sure to check out our trout packages by viewing the Packages tab at the bottom of this page.

Rules and Regulations

Guide Requirements

Non-residents are required to hire a guide or an outfitter to fish inland waters in Newfoundland and Labrador. After all, they know this place like the backs of their hands - and can show you where and how to land trophy fish.

Licence Requirements for Non-Residents

All non-residents of Newfoundland and Labrador require an angling licence. When using an outfitter, they will supply the licence as part of the package. When using a guide only, you may or may not have to get your own licence. Use the Angler's Guide for information on obtaining licences, scheduled rivers, daily and season bag limits as well as other angling requirements.

Angling in National Parks

Special licences are required to fish inland waters in our National Parks. These may be obtained from park administrative offices. Anglers should check with park officials on regulations that apply within National Parks – Gros Morne National Park, Terra Nova National Park, and Torngat Mountains National Park.
