Fly Fish to the Big Girls of the Restigouche

December 3, 2013 · Posted in Recent News · Comment 

big atlantic salmon The Restigouche River Lodge has posted a tremendous opportunity to fish for Atlantic salmon on the Restigouche River at an unheard of price. $2,900.00 gets you a full week of fishing, seven days for a total of 14 sessions with guide, private water, lodging and all your meals included. This week begins with a 3:00 pm arrival on Sunday May 11th and finishes with dinner on Sunday the 18th of May. Fly fish over Atlantic salmon in the range of 30 lbs. and over. To equal this trip one would have to travel to one of the few other big fish rivers in the world at a cost of five times or more.

Here is one other factor, the full moon falls on the 14 of May in 2014. This could be scary, fly fish to the big girls of the Restigouche.

River on the rise

May 26, 2013 · Posted in River Report · Comment 

Report on the Restigouche River at the RRL. The river has been rising over the past few days with a good amount of rain. Last night, with the river on the rise, one salmon was landed and many others seen. Before this raise all guests had shots at large salmon with a 25 lb and 23 lb landed. Some very big fish were spotted. The raise of water is 30 inches and the river is way up. Brooks are running clear and the river itself is coffee. Plenty of water for the month of June into July. Lots of big wood coming down and will post the conditions as they change.
