Legend has it that the first sport fisherman to cast a line at Causapscal was Lord Mount Stephen. Around 1870, he established his very own private fishing estate by buying up much of the property along the banks of the Matapédia and Causapscal Rivers. In the early 1900's, a group of wealthy American and English Canadian businessmen purchased Lord Mount Stphen's estate and founded the Matamajaw Salmon Club. For more than 60 years, the luxurious Club was a second home to members and their guests, lured by the prospect of measuring their strength and cunning against the king of our rivers, the Atlantic salmon.
