Quebec - summer trip for atlantics

Been away for a bit. Looks like I missed a lot of goings on...

I'm researching a summer trip (driving) to Quebec to do some fishing for atlantic salmon & possibly some brookies. Does anyone have any experience, recommendations, referrals, etc? Any and all input appreciated. I've done some preliminary research around the St. Fermin region - about 120 miles above Quebec City. Originally, was thinking New Brunswick, but we've a core group of 4, all of whom are willing to put in a 10 hour drive from Boston.

Thanks in advance!

Tod

I'm hardly an authority on the subject but a good starting point would be here:

http://www.quebectel.com/saumonquebec/anglais/index.htm

You get to see all the scheduled rivers, seasons, license fees, etc. for all salmon rivers in the Province of Quebec.

Tod-

In searching for the answer to the question "where the hell is St.Fermin?" I found an awesome map site that I am starting to like better than mapquest for general world searching.

Check it out <!--http--><a href="http://uk2.multimap.com/map/browse.cgi?client=M4&lon=-69.7312&lat=48.1066&scale=500000&place=St-Firmin,+Quebec,+Canada&db=w3&local=&type=&start=&l imit=" target="_blank">HERE</a><!--url-->

The key for atlantics will be general state of the runs in the river systems you are targeting, season, recent rainfall, etc.

Who have you talked to thus far?

Thanks guys! Juro - came across St. Fermin in an article I was reading a while back... can't remember the author, publication, nothing other than he did a self-guided trip in mid summer. So, save for doing some preliminary web surfing I've done little. Trutta's & your inputs have been very helpful. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks again.

Tod

My pleasure looking into it.

One note, if you look at the <!--http--><a href="http://www.quebectel.com/saumonquebec/anglais/r1609f.htm" target="_blank">stats for the St.Jean</a><!--url--> you might look elsewhere. The adult salmon catch stats for 1999 was 9 salmon.

We have a good friend on Cape Breton, Nova Scotia who knows the Margaree River like his backyard. Any thoughts in that direction?

Absolutely! We're pretty open to options. At this point the only limiting factor is that we'd like to keep the "commute" to no more than +/- 10 hours.
