East Canada

I will go to the East Canada on spring this year.
First- it will be to Toronto about 18.4. and I would like to try fly fishing for spring steelhead in some river +- near the Toronto. Could you recommend me some river? Is it good time for Great lakes steelheads?
Second trip (work trip ) will be about 12.6. to Montreal. I would like to make some longer fishing holiday. But I dont know if before or after this date. I would like to try atlantic salmon with spey rod and im interested in trouts and caddis time too. Could you recommend me good termin and some rivers with atlantic salmons run and trout?
Thanks to all.
Iīm sorry for my english.

Go to Gaspe

June in Gaspe can be great.especially later in June

I've fished with David Bishop and Marc LeBlanc there...among others
David has sold Salmon Lodge (and closed Gaspe Salmon Destinations) to Camp Bonaventure, so I am sure the prices have gone up...

if i were you i'd post this on the FlyTalk Forum. They have a section on Altantic Salmon. I know David visit that site frequently.


awesome place...

Check with Saumon Quebec web site regarding locations (http://www.salmonquebec.com). You may find regions closer to Montreal or up on the North Shore if your time is limited. You'll have to inquire to find out what and where the runs are that early on the St. Lawrence rivers and North Shore.

Gaspe proper will be fishing well during that time. Malbaie River Outfitters can hook you up (and they're even a sponsor).

Hello Martin
Glad you've got the June trip organised. The 12th of June is right around PRIME time for the Gaspe area for Atlantics and frankly it's VERY late in the yr. to try and get a guide/outfitter for this time, as all the good one's will have been booked up WELL before now and I would be suspect of anyone that is still offering anything around this time . As a matter of fact the REALLY good one's are already tied up for 2009 . I know one that is booked through
'10 as well !
As far as the North Shore mid June IS a little early except for one or two rivers such as the Moisie ,which again should be booked well in advance .
You can still get some decent Trout fishing IN and around the Montreal area ,however ,again your outside the prime time for local Landlocked Salmon (to 13 lbs) and Trout (to 6lbs ) .This fantastic fishery "shuts down" very fast in the spring !
As far as your April trip to Toronto , you COULD be into some very good Steelhead fishing very close to To. , and I'll ask a very good local fisherman to respond to your request . Could you also be able to get into the U.S. for some nearby Slteelhead fishing ?


Don't sweat the bad casts for they sometimes bring you fish

Thanks Brian, U.S. I cant visit, I need U.S. visa for it. I will have symposium in Toronto (I am Phd student) and I will have mya be 3-4 days for fishing. I found some intreresting steelhead river in USA, but I have not time for it. I hope, I will find some river near the Toronto.
In case of Montreal, it will be symposium too but I will have time for fishing.
I will need the guide for atlantic salmons? Will be some problems with permits for Matane river for example? I found that salmons rivers have controled and non controled sectors, but I dnot know, what is different between them. My idea is, that I will buy permits on some sales point from net and I will ready to catch fish. But I slowly think, that I am out in
Could you recomend me some river near the Montreal for this trout? I would like to have one week for salmon and one week for trout.
