PAYNE RIVER FISHING CAMP Coordinates – Latitude 60° North, Longitude 70° 40’ West

Dear Arctic Adventures enthusiasts,

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, current travel restrictions (international, national and regional) and out of concern for the health and safety of our customers, guides and all Nunavimmiut, we’ve made the hard decision to cancel our 2021 season. We are currently contacting all our customers who booked packages for this season.

We hope to see you all in good health and ready to start on a new adventure in 2022!

We thank you again for your confidence and understanding,

The Arctic Adventures team


Exciting Arctic Char Fishing…above Canada’s Treeline

Payne River fly fishing is second to none. The Payne is a major Arctic river flowing into Ungava Bay. It is the main watershed for the northwest tip of Quebec. The Payne River Camp is situated on the 60th parallel, 1100 miles due north of Montreal; 150 miles northwest of Kuujjuaq, and approximately 25 miles upriver from the village of Kangirsuk. The camp is only minutes away from the best Arctic char fishing to be found anywhere in North America.

Access has been simplified as guests travel to camp aboard a Twin-Otter on wheels and land on the camp’s 1100 foot landing strip a short distance behind camp.

The Payne River Fishing Camp offers anglers five days of incredible Arctic char fishing. Non-stop action, awesome scenery, abundant Arctic wildlife, comfortable accommodations, great meals and professional service are all part of the experience that awaits you.
