For some, the Kedgwick might look surprising, unpredictable and wild at the same time. These are three words that perfectly describe this unique river.
First of all, you wouldn’t expect to find salmon in such a small river—variations in water levels have a major influence on salmon runs on the Kedgwick. It’s a small river indeed, but in spite of this, you have the advantage of being able to discover it on foot thanks to well-preserved walking trails that have been laid out along its course many years ago.As a tributary of the Restigouche River, the Quebec side of the Kedgwick features about a dozen pools spread out over a 15 km stretch. The Kedgwick River then merges with the main part of the Restigouche and runs in New Brunswick entirely.
