cascapedia a dream come true

We’d forever wanted to fish the Grande Cascapedia, a river coveted by salmon anglers from around the world for a good reason; it hosts the largest Atlantic salmons in the world. The dream came true when we had the chance to fish with David BishopIt’s on the Lake Branches of the famous river. The water was rather low and warm weather conditions were therefore not ideal, but our friend and guide David still managed to show us why we should never give up when it comes to fly fishing. It was around 20h15 that David hooked up on a beautiful salmon.

A Fly Fishing Adventure on the Cascapedia River

Home of the 40-pounders, the Cascapedia River or “Grand”, as it’s also known, is recognized as one of the finest atlantic salmon rivers in the world. This majestic river cascades down through the Chic-Choc mountain range in a southerly direction, skipping behind patches of alder and spruce forests on its parallel journey with route 299, before emptying into the Bay of Chaleurs some 70-miles down river.
