"RainMan"nice name..........fish will enjoy your company!!

Brooks in Gaspé:

If you drive up the York river (from the town of Gaspé) you will cross 3 bridges.

1st: "Ruisseau d'Argent" ( very tiny brook.I would skip it.

2nd: "Petite Fourche" ( there are brook trout ) small brook ( maybe difficult for fly fishing only) You can fish simply with a Provincial trout license. You must be 300 ft away from the York river, thus start fishing up river ( on your right) and you are okay.

3rd: "Grande Fourche" larger stream, nice pools to fly fish and I'Ve seen and caught trout 8 to 12 inches. Again keep a right and stay away from the York river
and you are all set with your trout license.

The St-jean river also has an interesting brook ( near Sector 2)....again you must fish at least 300 ft away from the main river ( St-Jean) - it will be on your left.

The river Maps for the York and St-jean will guide you to these brooks ( they are indicated on the maps).

Another challenge......... "Mackeral fly fishing "from a wharf!! Man!! They are strong!!! and like Mickey Finns !! :chuckle:

Diversion:
Whale watching
Bird watching
kayaking
Lake fishing
guided tours in National Park
etc.etc..

Let me know if you need more info ( I'll send it by mail or email)

Hey Rainman. Welcome to the forum! If you're looking for an incredible place for your next trip, I highly recommend Libby Camps in Maine. There are two outpost cabins that offer stream fishing right out your door, the "Mooseleuk Stream" and "River Camp" cabins. The waters are all wadeable, or you can take a canoe (provided).
