Atlantic salmon fishing
In the heart of the subarctic, just above the 57th parallel north in Nunavik, Quebec, Wedge Hills Lodge sits perched on a hilltop overlooking the majestic George River – a waterway well-known for its fantastic Atlantic salmon fishing. The location is the main attraction – far from the bustle of urban life, and right in the middle of breathtaking landscapes, home to wildlife species found in only a few rare corners of the earth.
The lodge offers a private getaway of northern charm for guests to enjoy. In addition to private, well-appointed log-style cabins, guests can enjoy a lounge and screened-gazebo with wood-burning cedar hot tub for a truly relaxing experience under the Aurora Borealis-filled sky.
Wedge Hills Lodge is located on the famous George River, splendid and endless, wild and impetuous, with countless rapids where the king of the river, the Atlantic salmon, fight their way against the current in impressive numbers year after year.
In addition to Atlantic salmon fishing, you can also fish these cold waters for other popular species that abound and reach unparalleled sizes in the vast north such as landlocked arctic char, brook trout, lake trout and northern pike. Guided daily outings to different fishing pools by 22′ freighter canoe with 30 HP jet motors is an experience in itself. All guides have extensive experience on the water and in navigating the rapids to ensure clients’ safety. To enhance the experience, migrating caribou from the George River Herd and a large number of black bears can be seen while traveling the river.
With over 30 years experience outfitting and piloting in this vast territory, your hosts, Richard Hume and Amanda Kat, will take care of every detail. Together their mission is to provide first class northern adventures for groups of family and friends, creating memories to last a lifetime.
