Welcome to the Spirit Wind Salmon Lodge located on the Eagle River, Labrador. We have lodge accommodations for 18 individual guests at any one time with a total of 3 different priced Atlantic salmon angling packages to choose from.
The lower Eagle River over the years has become world-famous for its abundance of Atlantic salmon. We are not boasting when we say we have the finest location on the river because of our proximity to the salt water of sandwich bay, only 4.5 miles away.
When are the prime times?
June to July
Excellent Large salmon fishing with some grilse
July to August
First part of July Outstanding Large Salmon fishing and the grilse begin to show up.

Grilse fishing remains good. Jack (male) salmon begin to run.
Certainly all are subject to Mother Nature and the river conditions.
Eagle River salmon can weigh up to 28 pounds, with an average running between 12 and 16 lbs. The salmon will have all the fight you could hope for and more. Angling can be done up and down the river from a boat or you can wade in the many great pools that are well know for producing trophy fish. We are in the prime location, pools start 60 feet of the shore of the Lodge.
We encourage the teaching of the sport to young people and we do not charge for kids fourteen and under, a great father and son-daughter tradition.
Accommodations include air conditioned cabins, clean linens, satellite phone, propane BBQ's, full size ranges, deep freezers, refrigerators, ice making machine, all cookware and utensils, all new boats, motors, fuel, landing nets and floatation jackets. All of our packages includes house-keeping services.
Here at the Lodge we encourage catch, snap and release of the fish, however if you elect to take your legal portion of fish we will freeze and vacuum pack it for your departure.

I was born and remained on the river year round till the age of four then was forced to resettled. Like many Labradorians we share two cultures. First and foremost is aboriginal that has been on the land for only the great spirt knows. Secondly is European and this too has been prevalent on the river since 1835. With an unbroken way of life I have over 38 years of experience on the mighty Eagle River.
We appreciate your business and strive to meet your needs however our ultimate goal is to see you return each season.
