Atlantic Salmon - Canada

Hi there
My name is Rob and I am in the UK. This is my first post on this fantastic forum and I apologise that it is a request for help.
Having seen the DVD of Hendrick Mortensen fishing Cascapedia and Bonaventure rivers, it has whetted my appetite for a visit to that part of the world.
Could you kind people give me any pointers on destinations, best time of year, recommended guiding or complete packages to contact. The
Mirimichi also looks very appealing. Thank you in anticipation
Rob

Hi Rob, I would suggest the Miramachi River system would be your best option, as almost half of all Atlantic Salmon caught in North America come from the Miramachi River and it's tributaries. Try a web search for "Salmon fishing on the Miramachi River", and you will find many lodges that offer guided services for your trip.
Good Luck and Good Fishing.

Hi Rob,

You could try the search function on the board here -

here's just one I found....

Seems July to back-end (Sept/Oct) fishing can be good

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson

Take only photographs, retain only memories, leave only a good impression of yourself, perhaps just footprints.

Your lines, your rivers, your way!

Rob, regarding Gaspe contact Malbaie River Outfitters, sponsor of this board, and that's the best start you could have. They are out towards the end of the peninsula near the town of Gaspe. There are three rivers that meet in and around Gaspe; York, Dartmouth, and St. Jean. They are all unique and they can give you good advice on when and where to fish.

At the other end of the peninsula is Matapedia. You can stay at the Motel Restigouche in Matapedia and fish the public water about 15 miles up river. The ZEC office in Matapedia is always helpful to me. July is prime time but there are fish around in June for sure. Check out www.matapedia.com for more details.

The rivers that Henrik fished are in the middle of the peninsula and I know he was at Camp Bonaventure with Glenn Legrand. They have two facilities now, Salmon Lodge on the Cascapedia is new for them, but is very historic. That is all guided, little to no do it yourself there.

David Bishop, "Gaspe Salmon" on this board, guides on all three of those rivers and is first rate among all Gaspe guides. I have to admit that "eagle eyes" is a very close friend, so I have a bias, but he's the guy who has taught me to fish all the rivers on Gaspe successfully. Can't say enough about his skills in a canoe or guidance on the river. You'll have to find a place to stay and draw your own water, but you'll fish hard and pick up a lot about how to fish these unique rivers. The middle rivers fish the best after the third week June, usually best in early July.

My plans usually go like this. Book as many days with David as I can, keep my ear to the ground, go in the 48 draws where I think the fish are, and travel light and fast.

-Chris

I would be happy to organiza an outting for you on the Gaspe if you like; there are seveal members of Spey Pages who have fished with Malbaie River Outfitters over the past few years and I can put you in touch with them if you like.

If the Miramichi is a place you would like to go then you might consider Wilsons Camps (no relation to Wilson who posted); their website is:

www.wilsonscamps.nb.ca

Thanks for the kind words Chris; hope to see you on the Gaspe this June (you as well Grey Ghost).

Look forward to seeing you in June; you will certainly enjoy the Gaspe.

Chris: Thanks for the glowing recommendation; hopefully we can wet a line again this June (how about on some private water or a canoe run )!

Back from Gaspe

Hi Rob,

I also saw the DVD from Henrik Mortensen "The Scandinavian Spey Cast" and today I came back from the Gaspe. I fished the Cascapedia, Petit Cascapedia and Bonaventure. Especially the Bonaventure is very good in the moment. At the Petit Cascapedia I fished the same Pools as Mortensen and the Informations in the DVD are very usefull. The information I got was that the best time for these rivers is the first week of July.

The outfitter was Pourvoire des Lacs Roubidoux.

The guiding of Gérard Gonzalez was very good and he is very fair to the fish while releasing it.

The lodge is near to the Bonaventure and also to the Petit Cascapedia. At the Cascapedia I hooked no salmon, but I saw plenty of them.

The rivers are very beautiful and you will enjoy a trip to the Gaspe. You also will enjoy dry fly fishing with Bombers, so don't forget your singelhand rod #9 and calm down when a big salmon takes the Bomber...

If you will, you can send me a PM.

Tight lines,

Andreas
