An Atlantic Salmon Lodge on the Restigouche RiverMann’s Mountain | New Brunswick, Canada
In New Brunswick mature Atlantic salmon are protected from feeling the club. Grilse are still on the meal table as of now, and that’s a topic for another discussion. With our camp being in New Brunswick I guess you could say we should mind our own business. But if we all go about minding are own business, the Atlantic salmon that we all love will one day disappear. Read More

The RRL 2013 Atlantic Salmon season is underway. Here’s guest Justin with a nice fresh bright chrome spring Atlantic salmon. The waters high and the fish are bright. We are all hoping for a great season.
The Restigouche River is still iced over with a small open channel along the Quebec side from the Matapedia River down. There is also a small channel along Home Pool on the New Brunswick side, and another channel open in Ledges Pool. The open water channel runs and disappears under the ice on the river’s path to the bay. The Bay of Chaleur is mostly open water now with some shore ice. Up river, it has been reported of heavy ice in the river as at the lodge the ice is quite thick.
The ground is covered in snow pack deeper in the woods, gullies and creek beds. Daytime temperatures rise during the mid day but drop quickly and are below the freezing mark each night. Soft snow and water on top of the river ice in early afternoon and by morning frozen back over again. We await the ice run and will post when it starts.

History of the Restigouche River
The Restigouche River is steeped in history from the first explores of the river to the wealthy moguls of industry that built the lodges and fished the Restigouche River for its famous world class Atlantic salmon. The window to this history was opened to me at the time we purchased the Point Du Jour Salmon Camp now the Restigouche River Lodge. It is our hope that we can in time, take a look into this history and find and record some of the interesting facts about the people and events connected to this river through its salmon fishing.

Greg Heister, host of Seasons On The Fly will visit the Restigouche River Lodge to continue filming an episode and fly fish the Restigouche River for those big first run Atlantic salmon most likely during the first week of June 2013.Greg has been producing award winning outdoors television for nearly 20 years. The accolades are highlighted by four regional Emmy awards won for a fly-fishing series and his coverage of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race. He began tying flies at 8 years old and has parlayed that early experience into a life-long passion that has taken him around the world in pursuit of fish that will eat a fly. He has been a fly-fishing guide in Montana, Idaho and Alaska. His fishing combined with 18 years of on-air experience in television, including work for ESPN, FSN and many local television stations, makes him the perfect host and producer for this type of program. Many of the fishing shows today are produced by fishermen who don’t know television or by television producers who don’t know fly-fishing. With his award winning experience in television, his work as a fly-fishing guide and his 30 years spent on rivers around the world Greg Heister is the right man to create such a show.
We still have a few openings for those who might want to visit the RRL this week. KB
