2019 Salmon Fishing Season
On June 4, 2019, Chief and Council met at a Duly Convened Chief and Council meeting to discuss Salmon Management and the opening date of the 2019 Listuguj Salmon Fishery.
Chief and Council would like to remind the community that all salmon fishers are to respect the Salmon Fishing Plan established in the 1995 Listuguj Mi’gmaq First Nation Law on Fisheries and Fishing (also known as the Salmon Law). More so, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Rangers will enforce the Salmon Fishing Plan on the entire Restigouche system, including New Brunswick waters.
Fishing season will begin on Wednesday, June 5th, 2019, at 4:00pm and end Friday, July 26, 2019 at 8:00am. Fishing is strictly forbidden on Mondays and Tuesdays. Fishing times are from Wednesdays at 4:00pm to Mondays at 8:00am, N.B. time.
For an official public notice of the opening date, fishing schedule, and fishing plan, please contact the Listuguj Rangers at (418) 788-2222.
