MATAPEDIA RIVER—The Matapedia River section owes its chief fame to the salmon fishing, which is found everywhere for at least forty miles along the course of the stream, to say nothing of the other rivers by which it is joined. One of these is the Causapscal, and some rare fishing is enjoyed at the forks. The Intercolonial Ry. follows the river from Lake Matapedia to its mouth, in Restigouche Harbor. The best fishing in this vicinity is from the middle of June to the middle of July. Trout may be caught with ease all through the season, not only in the rivers, but at such places as Amqui and Trout Lakes. The Matapedia trout are as large as some fish which pass for salmon in other places. At Assametquaghan, at McKinnon Brook, and at Mill Stream, will be found particularly good fishing.
