I'll see you on the Matepedia. Hope this year is better there than last year. All the Matepedia guys were fishing the Matane due to the lack of fish in their river. Hope this year is not a repeat.

Hi Chris,

I went for the main water on the GC. Never fished the big water and always wanted to. Fished both branches a few years back. Loved the Salmon Branch especially the Indian Brook Pool.
