Québec’s Gaspé Peninsula boasts some of the best and most renowned Atlantic Salmon Rivers in the world. Camp Bonaventure provides its guests the opportunity to fish over 80 miles of three fabled Atlantic Salmon Rivers. The Bonaventure is legendary for its water clarity and its sight casting opportunities, where underwater visibility exceeds 150 feet. The Petite Cascapedia is known for its gin clear picturesque pools holding big salmon and huge brookies, and the world famous Grand Cascapedia, where salmon in the forty-plus pound class are not uncommon.

The head waters of the rivers begin high in the Chic-Choc mountain range in the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula, providing cold, clear water throughout the entire season. Some of the very best salmon fishing occurs at times when other rivers experience poor fishing due to high water temperatures or low water conditions.

The lodge offers you, our team of expert Orvis-endorsed guides who are dedicated professionals and have fished these waters for many years. Your days on the river are enhanced by their profound knowledge and experience, but most of all, their passion for Atlantic salmon fishing and friendly approach.

Fishing is done either by wading or from traditional 26-foot river canoes. Early season can allow for a combination of both while later in the season the pools are better fished by wading.

Season: June to Sept.

Why bother travelling to far out places like Russia when a little know fact is the fishing on these rivers can and do match fish for fish and pound for pound
