Restigouche River & Kedgwick River

The Restigouche River

 New Brunswick's famed Restigouche River, which anglers call "the best darned salmon river in the world," draws legions of fishing enthusiasts annually, including wealthy businessmen, the famous, and even a former American president. And "running the Restigouche," is a pastime enjoyed by canoeists and nature lovers.

The Restigouche River has touched the lives of many people, from the Micmacs, for whom it was a major transportation route, to poor Irish immigrants seeking a better life. Breathtakingly beautiful and historically significant, the Restigouche provides exceptional recreational opportunities.

The Kedgwick River

It is easy to imagined the Kedgwick River to be small and wood-choked, and rocky, especially as it flows between Narrows Mountain and Crabbe Mountain, two hills at the southernmost end of the Appalachian Range that runs through New Brunswick. But it was not quite like that.

The water is deep at the put-in and wide. The current is quick but not rock-choked. Instead, rocky turns followed one after another, prompting us to rudder gently between rounded boulders. The Kedgwick river is full of salmond and ends in the Restigouche River.
