Great amateur video Claude! It shows not only that there are new faces appearing on the Salmon fishing scene in QC, but that it's more than just about catching fish. Cool!

What language do they speak there? Is it true that you can only fish for salmon with a guide?
Just curious as I still have to make my mind up for a round trip to Iceland or Eastern Canada nex year.

My best memories are not too old!!

They speak ( la langue de Molière) French. But most people in Quebec also speak English. In the province of Quebec you don't need to hire a guide for salmon fishing. The most popular rivers are ; Matapedia, Causapscal, Matane, Mitis, Grande Cascapédia, Bonaventure, St-Jean, York, Darmouth, Ste-Anne. All of these rivers have public access right and easy fishing. Grande Cascapedia, Matapedia, Causapscal, Bonaventure, St-Jean, Ste-Anne have sections you have to book by November1 and cost over 600$ per day for fishing right. Public sections with no reservation average 50$ per day and have good fishing. But could be more crowded depending on what time of the season you decide to go. If you want to fish in gin clear streams go for the Bonaventure, Grande Cascapedia, Ste-Anne, St-Jean.

The last 2 videos were only viewable by copying the video URL and then pasting into a separate web browser tab.

FWIW, I use a VPN and tried both Canada and USA locations. No happiness. Never had this issue on this web site with other embedded Youtube videos so am not sure what is going on here.

Science is not common sense. Much of it is devoted to a systematic documentation of what we do not know and understand.

Just to clarify something ClaudeH said, those rivers have public access… That is that you don't need to be a member of a private club to fish there. BUT… The Ste-Anne, Grande Cascapedia, St-Jean (Gaspé) and Causapscal only have ''limited rod'' beats; that is the number of fishermen by beat is limited to a small number (you need to win the pre-season or 48h draws); you can't just walk in, pay for the beat and go fishing there. The other rivers mentionned have both limited rod and unlimited rod beats so they can accomodate you even if you don't win a draw.

When fishing in the Gaspe peninsula I frequently meet anglophones, (Canadians, americans, Irishmen, etc...). I don't think you'd have too much trouble fitting in as long as you are personable with good streamside etiquette.

Cheers!

Simon
