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.
