Daily catch limit on La Malbaie River
Code of ethics
Rotation system rule
The ''Rotation on the ½ hour'' rule must be respected by all fishermen;
Having arrived at the assigned or chosen section of the river, the angler makes a series of casts while working your way downstream. It must be remembered that each angler must start upstream from a pool and always maintain a normal distance between the angler following and the angler ahead;
Having arrived at the part of the river having been assigned or selected, the angler calculates a half hour when there is another angler waiting or a half hour per angler when there is more than one waiting.
The last fisherman to arrive must queue upstream of the pool, behind the one who arrived before him.
When the first salmon is caught, all other fishermen located in the same area must stop fishing. If there is a lost or a catch, the fisherman must return to the end of the queue, if he’s still allowed to fish.
A fisherman or a group of fishermen aren’t allowed to monopolise a pool.
C&R or Catch and Release technique
After catching a salmon alive and even if he has the right to keep it, the sport fisherman can free the salmon if he so desires. The daily C&S limit at La Malbaie River is 2 salmon. Great care must be taken when releasing a hooked salmon.
