Checking In On Atlantic Salmon


Article Date: June 2001

There's some exciting news these days from Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula, considered holy ground for Atlantic salmon anglers. First, there is a brand-new "permitting service" in place there that will make it easier in the future to obtain the necessary permission to go astream. And, second, some mighty large fish are being taken in Quebec these days.

As for the "permitting service," the need for this arises because salmon waters on the Gaspé are either private (or exclusive and thus very expensive), or they are open to fishing by permit only. These permits are awarded to anglers through a pre-season lottery system that operates much like the one used in the Rocky Mountain West to allocate big game hunting licenses. Problem is, all of the management organizations that control stretches of public waters have their own drawing protocol and specific deadlines. On top of that, most of the literature you need to wade through is in French. The upshot is, it is quite daunting, trying to sort out which waters you want to apply for and when you must do so.

Enter Glenn LeGrand, an English-speaking native who operates Camp Bonaventure. He has taken what I think is a very necessary step toward making this fishing more easily accessible. Continuing subscribers will remember that Camp Bonaventure has received high praise in these pages for the quality of their service and their fishing on the Bonaventure and the Grand and Petit Cascapedia rivers. Now, LeGrand will be offering a full "permitting service" that will allow you to apply easily for any fishing permits you want. Here's how it works....

You discuss with LeGrand the various options you have for dates and prime waters, give him your pertinent information and a check to cover application costs and his fee. He'll handle the whole process of filling out the applications, following up on securing the permits and any other services you may need, including entry into any follow-up drawings for permits on waters you wanted but weren't successful in drawing initially.........(continued)
