McKenzie River in Northern Labrador is one of the Best Spots for Fly Fishing in Canada

If you’re looking for a spot with crystal clear waters and plenty of brook trout, the McKenzie River in Northern Labrador is a must-visit for flyfishing enthusiasts. This massive river system is known to have some of the best fishing spots in Canada, with remote waters that provide an unforgettable experience. The McKenzie River is also home to landlocked salmon fishing, laker, Northern pike and whitefish, making it an ideal location for anglers who want to catch different species.

Located to the north-northwest of the Smallwood Reservoir, our waters serve as migratory routes for fish moving between the Smallwood Reservoir, through the Murray Lake system, and up past McKenzie River Lodge to spawn in our rivers. We offer access to 30 miles of water system, which includes three rivers – the McKenzie, Quartzite, and Comeback ( each unique in terms of size, water speed, and bottom makeup) and three lakes – Andre, Montgomery, and Comeback.

The water system drains from our northwest from Marion River, entering Comeback Lake, Comeback River, into Montgomery Lake, and on to Andre Lake. Quartzite River drains into Andre Lake halfway down its western shore. The watershed exits Andre Lake past McKenzie River Lodge into the McKenzie River, which begins several hundred yards behind the camp.

One of the great things about McKenzie River Lodge river is that it offers something for both novice and experienced anglers. Our guide team will provide advice and tricks to make your trip unforgettable.
