Rainbow, Brook and Brown Trout are the most common variations found in the waterways of Flat Bay and many residents continue to participate in this activity to lend a helping hand at mealtime. Fishing for trout is just as much a sustenance activity as it is a sport for residents.

Ice Fishing

Any traveler to Flat Bay during the winter months will be greeted by numerous vehicles littered near access roads to Flat Bay Bottom, especially the area below Perrier’s Convenience, as the fishing for a feed of Smelt through the ice has become an expedition for many people in the region.

Newfoundland Labrador Tourism
 Sometimes, you have to take the road less travelled before the real journey begins. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the journey can be as colourful as stories told around the kitchen table. As meandering as our thousands of kilometres of coastline. As surprising as a humpback whale breaching in the mist. Or as comforting as bakeapple jam. There are places that travel with you, wherever you go.
