Episode 9 - The Kedgwick Lodge

100 kilometers away from Listuguj, Mi'gmaq guides are welcoming veterans to a salmon fishing retreat at the Kedgwick Lodge.

Herbie is from a long lineage (133 years) of Indigenous fishing guides at the exclusive Kedgwick Lodge, where the rich and famous have come to fish for over a century. He and the other guides prepare for the 2019 salmon season, ready to welcome their first guests, a group of military veterans. Fishing can be a little slower these days. The Restigouche River used to be abundant with salmon, but today, the stocks have diminished significantly. We’ll find out what the Listuguj science team is doing to try and increase the population of salmon in the river.
