La cache outfitters is proud to present in addition to our currents offerings, guided fly fishing excursions for Atlantic Salmon. Our approach as with migratory birds is to remain mobile moving from river to river in order to target the fresh fish entering the river system for the best odds of hooking into an early summer bright. Our favorite rivers include; the Matapédia, Matane, Bonaventure and the Grand Cascapedia. Our guides are similarly experienced with the Gouffre river, with close proximity to Quebec City, in Baie-Saint-Paul-Charlevoix.
The month of June marks the return of the first big reproducing females, which are sought after by all who pursue Atlantic Salmon, are notoriously hard to target. Although the numbers of fish remain low at this time, the rewards can be extraordinary, due to the first fish that enter the river are the largest of the season. As of the second week in June these big fish have entered the rivers and are ready to eat a well presented fly.
In certain sectors and rivers of the Baie de Chaleurs we work in partnership with Guide-coop, David Bishop, and Falls Gully Outfitters. Contact us today to plan your next Atlantic Salmon adventure.
Our packages include the necessary equipment and flies to pursue these once in a lifetime early season monsters.
