Camp Bonaventure and Salmon Lodge
I was simply stunned by the extraordinary beauty of the crystal clear Bonaventure River, and to top it off the prime method is dry fly fishing with bombers which is perhaps the most exciting way to catch salmon. You can swing flies with a small two hander or if you are feeling adventurous fish upstream dry fly and actually watch each wiggle of a fin as the fly drifts over a pod of salmon. The Bonaventure also contains some very large fish, although for fish over 25 lbs it would be better to head over to the Grand Cascapedia only 25 minutes away and both rivers are fished by the lodges.
Camp Bonaventure is a relatively new lodge while Salmon Lodge provides a real feel of history. This one hundred year old lodge has been refurbished inside and outwithout losing its charm or tradition. It nestles on a bluff overlooking the large meandering bend of the Grand Cascapedia and while you look over the river from the deck during the evening you will positively feel the aura of those who have come before you. Space is in high demand from returning clients so if you fancy trying your hand at these historic rivers, please don’t delay getting in touch.
When thinking of Atlantic salmon the East coast of Canada is not the first destination that springs to mind, yet for over one hundred years it has been the best kept secret in North America. There is one operation that surpasses all others in this area and has stunning lodges on both the Bonaventure River and the fabled Grand Cascapedia. The owner Glenn LeGrand,is one of those extraordinary men where NOTHING is ever too much trouble, and I have to say that the service from his guides and staff is second to none.
