These are suggested times, but should you wish to have an early start or to sleep in, we are happy to accommodate. Breakfast service begins around 6:00 am. The guides arrive at the lodge at 7:00 am. Your departure is whenever you are ready. You are usually gone for a full day of fishing. You have the flexibility to return to the lodge at your discretion, provided it is before supper and darkness. Upon your return, hors d’oeuvres are served at 6:30, and supper is served at 7:30.

Departure Day – Before going out to fish on your last day, all your personal belongings should be removed from your room prior to your departure to the river. The daily routine is just like any other fishing day. However, upon your return to the lodge, your stay will come to an end.

Built in 1993 and designed as a classic fishing lodge, this is the perfect destination for your fly-fishing vacation. The main lodge features a spacious and open-concept living room and dining room area that is accentuated by a stunning thirty-foot river-stone fireplace. Laughter and fishing stories take on a life of their own, and friendships are made because of their shared passion for the sport. This lodge accommodates up to eight guests in four inviting and comfortable double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. Evenings are enjoyed gathered around the crackling fire or on the outside veranda, where many coffees, nightcaps, and years of fishing adventures have been shared.

Just steps away from the main lodge, you will find the private guest house, which is the ideal accommodation for a family of four, two couples, or four fishing friends. It features a spacious living room with a river-stone fireplace, two comfortable double bedrooms with private baths, a screened-in porch off each bedroom, and its own patio.

This lodge also features a functional Rod Room. Thoughtfully designed, it offers anglers a secure location to house their rods, reels, and gear. Custom rod holders line the wall, and expertly crafted wooden lockers offer private storage for each angler to dry their gear overnight. The Rod Room always has fresh coffee in the morning and refreshing drinks for your return from the river. It is where you will meet your guide and anticipate the days of fishing to come.

Your fishing experience is perfectly complemented by the enjoyment of homestyle cuisine. Your Executive Chef, Diane, has a passion for both fishing and the culinary arts and has crafted a menu inspired by an assortment of seasonal favorites. A full breakfast is served every morning with daily specials, homemade wild berry jams, and local maple syrup. Lunch is served by the river and includes hearty soups, fresh salads, savoury stews, delicious chilli, and a variety of sandwiches. Your shore lunch is not just a refuelling stop but an experience that fosters a sense of camaraderie amongst fellow anglers and guides.

Upon your return to the lodge, enjoy tasty hors d’oeuvres with your favourite cocktail in the living room or watch the sunset on the veranda. In the dining room, guests are served a delicious full-course supper with wine and irresistible homemade desserts. The exceptional culinary offerings will become an integral part of your stay and a testament to the commitment provided to your memorable fly-fishing experience.

Guests have the opportunity to fish on three of Gaspe, Quebec’s most well-known and productive Atlantic salmon rivers. The Bonaventure River is legendary for its water clarity and offers its anglers a captivating sight-casting experience. The Petite Cascapedia provides an intimate fly-fishing adventure, creating a tranquil haven for those seeking both the thrill of a catch and the solace of nature’s embrace. The world-famous Grand Cascapedia River, home of the Cascapedia Giants, will create memories to last a lifetime.

You will enjoy a full-day fishing experience with a riverside lunch served by your guides. During the month of June, anglers will fish a combination of casting from traditional 26-foot river canoes and wading. July and August present anglers with the opportunity to walk & wade during the action-packed dry fly season. September is an exciting month due to seasonal changes on the river, so anglers can expect both wade and canoe fishing depending on water levels.

Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome on these trips. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, your fishing adventure is designed to provide a welcoming and enjoyable fly-fishing experience. Your professional guides are great teachers, too.
