Fly fishing on the world's largest island

Join our hosts to some of the most spectacular and remote places and fly fish for species you did not know exist.

The Kangia River is a hidden gem located in Greenlands West Coast and is widely known for its large runs of huge Arcic chars and unbelievable beauty. The avarage size of these fish running up in the river is way bigger than in other rivers in Greenland.

The river is made for fly fishing with its cut-banks, rapids, slow and deep stretches, waterfalls and pocket-water all the way down to its delta at the rivermouth. 7km upstream from camp is a ten meter high waterfall that blocks migrating fish to continue its run up river which creates a deep pool stacked with huge fish. Since the waterfall blocks the access for the fish to move further up steam, they eventually spread out along the 10 km long stretch of river between the river mouth and the waterfall.

Unlike other locations in the region, char in the Kangia weigh in at well-above 2 kg on average, and we commonly land fish in the 3-4 kg range and above. The biggest fish landed so far weighed in at 6.3 kg (14 lbs), but several bigger fish have been hooked and lost. Fish this size are hard not only to hook but even more so to land. Anglers aiming to set new records better come well-prepared as Arctic char are strong fighters and will put on a show that will leave seasoned anglers baffled.

Sea-Run Arctic Char

Early in the season bigger steelhead intruders and streamers presented on a light skagit or sink-tip line outfit are perfect when searching for big chrome fish in higher water conditions. Switch rod or a single-hand rod is a matter of personal preference. Every pool in the river can be comfortably fished with a single-hand rod under all conditions. Streamers, nymphs, rubberlegs, and classic salmon flies work most of the time but we recommend that everyone try the surface game! Swinging or skating a gurgler or foam fly on the surface with bow waves rising up behind the fly is something special and is about as exhilarating as it gets!

The Kangia River Lodge is situated on a plateau at the delta of the majestic Kangia River and comes with spectacular views overlooking the home-pool and a sheltered bay where the river meets the Atlantic Ocean. Though the lodge is simple, it’s equipped with all the basics one needs for a comfortable stay during a week of fishing. The lodge can accommodate up to 12 anglers at once. Sleeping quarters consist of a total of six rooms, each contains one bunk bed that sleeps two anglers. The main lodge has two toilets, two showers, a fully equipped kitchen, a brand new bar and lounge area, and a spacious dining area overlooking the river. The veranda at the front of the lodge with its view of the river mouth and valley below, is the perfect place to enjoy an after-fish drink and share some fishing stories with your friends.

Apart from the main lodge, we have a smaller satellite-camp located 2.7 km upriver that offers anglers a comfortable resting place at one of our fishing hotspots. This camp is a great starting point for anglers who want to fish the middle and upper sections of the river. To make your hike to this location as easy as possible, you can leave your waders and wading shoes at the satellite camp and make the walk to and from the lodge in regular hiking shoes and pants. Whether you prefer to stay near the main lodge or venture all the way up to the waterfall is up to you. The fish are plentiful throughout the river and you can fish at your own pace all day, every day.
