The abundance of giant Atlantic salmon in these two
magnificent rivers have elevated Matapedia to the Salmon
Capital of the World and a destination of choice not just
for the passionate fly fishing angler but also for hunters,
hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Matapedia and Restigouche rivers have for over
a century attracted the world's financial, political, and show business elite to our small village, including Princess Louise, King Edward VII, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor,
Bing Crosby, and more recently George H. W. Bush,
Dick Cheney, General Norman Schwarzkopt and
a host of U.S. dignitaries.
