The RRL is Creating Non-Fishing Opportunities

March 13, 2017 · Posted in Recent News · Comment 

With the completion of our new lodge and the increase occupancy we are able to expand the RRL experience to other types of guests. Here are some of the interesting ideas that the lodge is considering.

  1. Anglers will be able to bring along a non-fishing guest during our busiest weeks depending on availability.
  2. We are planning some packages for corporate retreats and weekend getaways.
  3. The Restigouche River Lodge will be opening our dining room for certain available dates. Reservations will be taken for these special dinner seating’s. Local restaurant goers will enjoy the relaxed, supreme dining experience that our fishing guests have always enjoyed. Spend a wonderful evening on the Restigouche River, full course dinners and bring your own.
  4. When available dinner with overnighters will be made available to travelers during the summer months.

The Restigouche River Lodge is delighted to expand the Restigouche experience to all. At the Restigouche River Lodge we strive to exceed our guest expectations.

Weird Fish

Weird Fish

weird fishRestigouche 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.  If there is someone who can name this strange looking fish, be the first one to  email info@restigouchelodge.com with the correct scientific and common  name. The winner will be entitled to a two for one three day trip to the  Restigouche River Lodge. This trip is redeemable for the 2017 Atlantic  salmon season by availability.  Good luck and have some fun! KB

Salmon and a Hurricane

November 26, 2014 · Posted in Recent News · Comment 
Roger Salmon

Roger Urwin

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.

The determined sport and guide fought all the punishment Arthur could dish out that evening. Despite the least likely salmon taking conditions this fellow managed one fine Atlantic salmon that evening. The two came in cold and wet with big smiles on their faces.

I think we would be hard pressed to find another Atlantic salmon angler that could tell such a story. The RRL hats come off to Roger Urwin one determined fly fisherman with an Atlantic salmon and a hurricane to remember.

Cheers Roger, you sure know how to play the game!
