33-Day Camping, Fishing & Paddling Trip Across Northern Québec & Newfoundland & Labrador - The Full Documentary: In 2011 I was commissioned by Field & Stream magazine to complete and film three large scale adventure expeditions in the Canadian North. This was one of them and it has been my most challenging canoe trip to date. It was a true wilderness, wild camping trip as we were well off-grid on remote rivers. We were fishing for brook trout, land locked salmon, lake trout and char and the fishing was world class. We also had to get other food from the land through foraging berries and harvesting wild geese. about one third of the calories we took in came from the land. We started via the train from Labrador City to Schefferville, Québec which took us off of the road system. From there, we began our paddling trip on Lake Atticamagen, portaging over a height-of-land into the Du Pas River. We'd then undergo a challenging string of portages that would take us across another height-of-land between the Du Pas and George Rivers and we'd even travel down an unnamed river before reaching the George. Then, we'd go up the mighty George which was no easy task and we'd continue on through large wilderness lakes until we crossed yet another height-of-land into the Adlatok River. The Adlatok is a wild and extremely remote river that flows into the Labrador Sea. We were charged by a bear before our second two-day plus portage on this trip, we ran countless raging whitewater rapids, many of which were very boulder-strewn and we traveled a large distance on the Labrador Sea where we found ourselves windbound. We also sailed the Labrador Coast aboard the Northern Ranger once out trip ended.
