RRL partner / owner Charlie Polsky flew in from the windy city June 27 to fish the river. He casually got on the water around 6:30 and plucked a 35 lb Atlantic from Home Pool within an hour. He then retired to the fire pit to take in all that had just happened. The fish took in the middle of Home pool after coming back to a Picasse the second time. She fought Charlie hard, four times well into his backing and landed the big girl well beyond the ledge.

We have been off to a slow start this season but over the last few days good numbers of large salmon have been spotted. On June 16 angler Anthony rang the bell raising two salmon dropping a 14 and cashing in with a 35 lb hen from our Poker Pool. They lost the photo opt but the memory is fixed between the ears of one happy face. Sandy a new guide at the RRL got his first big Restigouche Fish what a way to start. Guest Roger improved the streak with a 12 and 14lb salmon from Ledges and Home pools.

Hurricane Arthur provided all the fireworks for Canada Day and the Fourth of July in 2014. Arriving to the Canadian Maritimes with a big bang the storm kept most of the outdoor activities to a minimum. Arthur really whipped up the Restigouche River and on a time of the season when you would expect beautiful warm weather Mother Nature gave us the big chill. Winds took down one of the RRL flag poles, a large tree along with many huge limbs around the grounds.
In camp during this week was a fine chap, Roger Urwin from across the pond. Roger, who comes from England might have been raised on rainy, cold weather but not this. Other sports came in quickly as the storm started to rage, not so for Roger and his guide Matty. The two braved the powerful winds, rough water and frigid temperatures, oh boy was it cold.Read More…
