The Matapédia and Restigouche rivers are world renowned for their salmon fishing. Visited by world famous celebrities for more than a century but now accessible to all, these rivers remain among the most productive in all ofQuebec. Each spring after the spring thaw fishing for black salmon attracts an increasing number of fishers who enjoy the thrill of the rushing waters and the sparkling fish.
Dozens of small streams which flow in our valleys are destinations of choice for trout fishers.
The Corporation for the management of the Matapédia and Patapédia rivers (CGRMP) manages access rights to these rivers and provides all information needed on how to get to the public salmon fishing sectors of the Matapédia and Patapédia. They offer many different fishing plans including accommodation in a chalet on the wild Patapédia. Other firms in the region offer services for transportation, guides and fishing equipment as required. American plan all inclusive packages are popular as are plans for accommodation or camping without extras.
For hunting proximity to the Rimouski and Dunière reserves and the proximity to the large wild areas of New Brunswick help to make the region of Matapédia and the plateaus where trophy moose are common occurrences. Some of our outfitters provide high end plans to satisfy the most demanding hunters.
Other visitors prefer hunting for small birds and ducks.
