A Matapedia River Lodge Guide will take care of you each day that you fish, this professional 
guide will take you on the river and direct you to the best pools of the zone you will be fishing. 
He will show you the hot spots, help you in your casting and recommend the best flies to use at that time. 

Fishing hours are at your discretion, but we highly recommend that you take a nap in the afternoon. Let's give the fish and guide a break! 

The Matapedia river has a clear, tea-colored water tint that becomes very dark when it receives a good rain, but the water can be very clear when the water level drops for many consecutive days. 

The Matapedia is a large river that can be fished from a canoe or with waders from the shoreline. You can fish in most of the pools with a single hand rod but a Spey rod is a major advantage especially in high water and with larger flies.

We also offer in the spring in mid-april, sea run trout and black salmon fishing on the Restigouche and Matapedia river and also guided fishing in boats on the Matapedia lake starting at the beginning of may.

If you need effective flies, waders, fishing boots or fishing accessories we have a large inventory in the lodge shop.
