Dear Angling Friends,

So quickly the seasons seem to go now. 2018 proved to be our toughest season since 2002. Both grilse and large fish runs were down this year. Like last season we also had higher than normal water conditions during the early weeks as well.

This season has also started a change of ownership, Eldon has sold his interest in the camp to Birchy Lodge (Ron Letto). Eldon will still be working with us as usual.

Once again we would like to thank everyone for their continued support and great friendships we have established over the years. We also pledge to make your fishing experience and stay at the camp as good or better.

As in the last 4 seasons, we will continue using Saturday as changeover day.


  1. 100% Catch & Release is 100% supported by all and will continue to be mandatory.
  2. The daily limit per Angler is four (4) fish (unless the government sets lower limits).

As stated in previous newsletters weeks 1 through 6 will become equal for the 2019 season. Week 0 will stay the same as last season and weeks 7 and 8 will also increase slightly for 2019 as well.

Reservations are made at the Deer Lake Motel FOR ALL Fridays. Please let us know if you need one for the Saturday coming out. It is very important to keep luggage light and not bring any bulky, large rod cases or coolers or booze. Please send us your wish list ahead of time and we'll have it at the camp for you. Air transportation will be with Provincal Airlines using IFR twin engine aircraft between Deer Lake and Blanc Sablon and Beaver float plane operated by Ron Letto in and out of camp.
