Salmon Capital

Campbellton is situated on the south bank of the Restigouche River opposite Pointe-à-la-Croix, Quebec. Sportfishing enthusiasts literally travel from around the world in search of Atlantic Salmon.

To honour the king of game fish, the City erected an 8.5-meter stainless steel sculpture on its waterfront and lovingly adopted him as “Restigouche Sam”.

In the summer months, Salmon Plaza provides a picturesque backdrop for many photo opportunities and serves as an ideal spot for activity during the annual Salmon Festival (usually held the last week in June).

 

Restigouche Sam is located in a large fountain next to the Information Center along the river.

Battle of the Restigouche

The Battle of the Restigouche was the final naval battle between the English and French for the possession of North America during the Seven Years’ War. It was waged in 1760. In an attempt to protect their fleet, the French constructed a number of gun batteries along both sides of the Restigouche River.

Battle of Restigouche National Historic Site of Canada is located at the bottom of the Chaleur Bay, in the estuary of Restigouche River, on the Quebec side.

But you can find a few artifacts in Campbellton too. Marking this event are two cannons in Riverside Park, one with three fleurs-de-lys on the barrel and the other with what appears to be stylized anchors.

Phantom Ship of Chaleur Bay

The Chaleur Phantom or the Phantom Ship, is a form of ghost light – an unusual visual phenomenon. Some eyewitnesses have described a ball of fire far out on the bay, usually seen before a storm. Its cause is unknown.

The legend of the burning phantom ship in the Bay de Chaleur dates back more than two centuries. The most credible story centres on two Portuguese explorers who are believed to have made voyages to the Chaleur Bay region around 1500. A sail ship burned in the waters of the Bay – possibly from the Battle of the Restigouche.

The ghost of the vessel and its crew is visible on the water in certain weather and light conditions to this day.
