GASPE PENINSULA—In addition to the hunting and fishing grounds directly along the line of the Intercolonial Railway (see Matapedia River), there is splendid sport in the Gaspe Peninsula, reached from Matapedia Station by the Atlantic & Lake Superior Railway, running as far as New Carlisle; by team from Cross Point opposite Campbellton; and during the season of navigation, by steamer running from Campbellton, N. B., to various ports in Gaspe. The interior of the peninsula is unsettled, and much of it is a vast forest, where guides are an absolute necessity. The salmon rivers include such well-known ones as the Grand Cascapedia, Nouvelle, Pabos and others. Fine sea trout are caught in the Barrachois and other rivers, and many good lakes in the interior furnish splendid sport. Moose and caribou are found in the forest.
