There are no pools in Quebec where Speycasting is frowned upon . You might get the occasional comment on a rods length ,however adding that it's only a 7wt .will bring things into perspective . There are ,however certain pools on the Matapedia where use of a rod more than 11 ft. is posted as not allowed . These pools are those that can be fished from both sides .Two examples ,'Heppel ' and ' Fourches' .These regs came about due to arrogant attitudes by French and Midwest anglers .Also due to a couple of folk that decided to overhead cast with 15 or 16 foot rods .Ain't no-one going into a rotation when they were about . If one talks to folk first, while waiting your turn ,and explain that due to relatively no line curves out behind a Speycasting 2 hander fisherman you'll have no problem . I don't bother with Heppel because it's definately NOT the pool it was back in the
early 80's . The Fourches , I will fish if I'm on the Matapedia in early June.
I'll also basically move through the pool in about 7 or 8 minutes because the takers are only in two very well defined spots .If yor lucky and the Causapscal is slightly dirty and the main Matapedia current is clear the taking spots will become very evident .
Don't sweat the bad casts for they sometimes bring you fish
