Patrick’s 23.5lb Salmon


Guide Toby with Patrick’s Salmon

Here is Patrick with his 23.5 Atlantic from home pool yesterday. The guests have raised some big girls but the lines have not come tight. River is high, dark coffee and moving. We all know what that means water dropping and clearing in the coming days.

Mid-Winter River Report

February 22, 2016 · Posted in River Report · Comment 

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. RRL guide Mathieu spent many days working on his smelt shanty only to watch the bay fail to ice over. It’s getting too late to think of ice fishing now Matty, even though the bay is getting solid with the more consistent seasonal temperatures.

The snow fall has been far below the accumulations of the past few years with a blanket of three feet presently. In southern New Brunswick the ice ran on the Hammond River as the thermometer hit fifty last week. It is hard to say what the next month’s weather will bring. One thing for sure is it will bring us closer to spring.

We all should be getting up for the start of the Atlantic salmon fly fishing season. The RRL still has some prime weeks available so if you haven’t booked your 2016 trips give us a look.

Charlies 35lb Atlantic from Home Pool

June 28, 2015 · Posted in River Report · Comment 

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.
