Québec’s Gaspé Peninsula boasts some of the best and most renowned Atlantic salmon rivers in the world. We are located in the heart of the best and most productive salmon waters the sport has to offer. 

Camp Bonaventure provides its guests the opportunity to fish over 80 miles of three fabled Atlantic salmon rivers. The Bonaventure is legendary for its water clarity and its sight casting opportunities, where underwater visibility exceeds 150 feet. The Petite Cascapedia is known for its gin clear picturesque pools holding big salmon and huge brookies, and the world famous Grand Cascapedia, where salmon in the forty-plus pound class are not uncommon.

 

The head waters of our rivers begin high in the Chic-Choc mountain range in the heart of the Gaspé Peninsula, providing cold, clear water throughout the entire season. Some of our very best salmon fishing occurs at times when other rivers experience poor fishing due to high water temperatures or low water conditions.

We offer you our team of expert Orvis-endorsed guides who are dedicated professionals and have fished these waters for many years. Your days on the river are enhanced by their profound knowledge and experience, but most of all, their passion for Atlantic salmon fishing and friendly approach.

Fishing is done either by wading or from our traditional 26-foot river canoes. Early season can allow for a combination of both while later in the season our pools are better fished by wading. Or relax during a float trip along miles of pristine river where you will experience not only great fishing along the way but the breathtaking scenery our area is famous for.
