Pat, The Atlantic salmon run on the Matane River peaks out during the last of July and the first part of August. It has a run of 2500 salmon per year on average. There is a water control dam with a fishway at the mouth of the river right in town just off route 132. For a fee of $2 you can observe salmon through a glass portion of the fishway. The daily rod fee is approximately $65 Canadian and there isn't any reserved sections in the river. The best pools are always crowded, but are rotated, and you will get your turn to fish the entire pool.
