Fishing Quebec’s Bonaventure


I’ve just returned from fishing one of the most storied waterways in North America, The Bonaventure River in the Gaspé Peninsula, QC.  I was the guest of Camp Bonaventure, surely one of the finest Atlantic Salmon lodges in the world, located near what has been called the clearest salmon river in the world.  If would-be lodge owners were looking for the best way to learn the hospitality business in the sporting industry, I would send them to Camp Bonaventure to see how it is done best.

It was not only a successful fishing outing for me, but for every sport I met at the lodge.  I enclose a link here to a short video of a friend releasing the salmon he’d just caught.  The clarity of the water in the Bonaventure stands out.  If you’re looking for that once-in-a-lifetime Atlantic salmon fishing trip where you’ll stay in a lodge that attends to every detail and treats you like a king who’s after “the king of fish,” definitely check out: /
