Atlantic salmon live in the ocean. He return to the river where he was born in order to spawn. This is when anglers have the opportunity to face off against the legendary combativeness of this noble fish!
A spawning salmon doesn’t feed. The challenge for the angler is therefore to disturb the fish enough to provoke an attack – which is certainly difficult – but the fight is worth the trouble! Indeed, it is all about winning the battle.
The Atlantic salmon is available for fly-fishing in certain wildlife reserves and on Anticosti Island. Remember that salmon fishing requires a salmon licence and a fishing right of access pass.
