The Salmon Lodge has been welcoming Atlantic salmon fishing enthusiasts to the world-famous Grand Cascapedia Valley for over a century. Perched high on an 80-foot bluff overlooking the majestic Grand Cascapedia River, The Salmon Lodge was built in the late 1800’s. This historic lodge has been painstakingly maintained and from the moment anglers arrive there’s a special feeling that they’ve been swept back in time to an era of Atlantic salmon fishing in the “Grand Old Style”.
Ideally located in the heart of Quebec’s famous Gaspé Peninsula, The Salmon Lodge is located on the doorstep of the finest and most renowned Atlantic salmon rivers in the province and affords angler the opportunity to fish not one, but three of Quebec’s finest salmon rivers. The Grand Cascapedia River is world renowned for producing the largest Atlantic salmon in the province, and indeed some of the largest salmon in the world. More Atlantic salmon over the magical 40-pound mark have come from the Grand than any other river in North America. The Petite Cascapedia is an absolute jewel providing miles of some of the most beautiful and productive salmon and brook trout water anywhere. Big salmon in the 30 to 40 pound class are a possibility here as well sea-run brookies that can sometimes exceed 10 pounds. And last but not least, the Bonaventure, regarded as the clearest of the clear, offers anglers an unique opportunity to sight cast to huge salmon on miles of pristine river.
The fishing at The Salmon Lodge is either done wading from in the Gaspé style, from traditional 26-foot river canoes. Early in the season the Atlantic salmon fishing is a combination of both while later in the season many pools are best fished wading. The Salmon Lodge has excellent late season Atlantic salmon fishing (August and September) since the mountain streams and spring-fed brooks supply The Grand Casacapedia, The Petite Cascapedia, and the Bonaventure with cold water throughout the entire summer, keeping each them cool and clear.
The Salmon Lodge can accommodate up to eight fishing guests and four non-fishing guests in complete comfort. Well-appointed and comfortable bedrooms, an inviting living room and spacious dining room, both with their original fireplaces, create a relaxing and cozy atmosphere. A highlight of staying at Salmon Lodge is the spectacular
view from our deck and cigar-friendly screened porch, where a century’s worth of fishing tales have been told.
The Salmon Lodge also has a rod room, located in a separate building, which is the ideal place to keep fishing equipment during a visit. The rod room is where guests meet their guide in the morning before a day of salmon fishing. The features of the rod room include individual storage areas for each guest, a large rod rack, and there’s always fresh coffee in the morning and cool drinks at the end of the day.
Each day the resident chef prepares a different menu to tempt guest’s pallets. Homemade breads and jams along with all morning favorites will have guests ready for a day of salmon fishing. Anglers are welcometo return to the lodge to enjoy a wonderful lunch or take their midday meal picnic style on the river. Evening meals at the lodge begin with hors d’oeuvres served in front of a blazing fire or on the deck overlooking the Grand Cascapedia. These mouth-watering meals are served in the dining room begin with fresh salads, soups and appetizers, main courses include fresh lobster, local seafood and sizzling steaks off the grill, just to mention a few. The Salmon Lodge is happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions or requirements. Wine is included with lunch and diner, personal alcohol is not included, however, guests are welcome to bring their own. At the bar area The Salmon Lodge supplies all ice, mixes and necessary ingredients for the perfect drink. The lodge is also a short distance from a very well stocked liquor store.
Guests are fully guided by a team of experienced and professional guides, committed to the sport of fly-fishing for Atlantic salmon. All are qualified instructors; they teach the fundamentals to beginners or work with seasoned anglers to perfect their abilities. Most importantly, perhaps, is the friendship you’ll develop with these great guys.
