Restigouche River Lodge guide Mathieu spends a good amount of the winter month’s ice fishing on the Chaleur Bay. Out on the ice this morning he heard screaming from the shanty next door. Looking into his neighbor shanty he found his Cousin Philip cornered by this strange looking fish. After reviving the lads they were safely released and the fish headed back to the deep. Read more…

Sometime this morning while in a deep sleep a recurring dream came to me again. This dream is of an unknown Atlantic salmon river that I have visited many times while in my subconscious state. These dreams have offered me many wonderful adventures without travel, internet views or programs. My night time trip might have been spurred on by gawking at his magnificent Atlantic salmon from England Pool that Mack had just posted on Facebook. Read more…

The Restigouche River hides under the ice at last. This winter has been mild from New Brunswick’s on the new camp way of thinking. We were able to keep working well into December as the wind kept down and the temperatures stayed around freezing. The daily freeze thaw cycle created a muddy mess combined with the lack of daylight brought the new camp build to a holt. Read more…

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.
