For some salmon lovers, the Kedgwick is surprising, unpredictable and wild. These three adjectives aptly describe this singular river.
At first glance, you wouldn't expect to find salmon in such a small river: it's surprising. It's the water variations that seriously influence the salmon runs. Despite its small size, the river has the advantage of being easy to explore on foot, via sketchy paths that have preserved its original appearance.
A tributary of the Restigouche River, the Quebec portion of the river offers a dozen pools to discover over a 15-kilometer stretch. The Kedgwick then joins the main part of the river, which flows entirely through New Brunswick.
