Camp Bonaventure Fishing & River Report, Aug 6th to 12th, 2018

The first week of August was our toughest so far this season . Warmer than normal temperatures combined with little to no rain has made fishing tough. Water levels on the Bonaventure, Petite Cascapedia  and Grand Cascapedia are low and warmer than normal for this time of the season.

That being said its certainly not gloom and doom. As I writing this report its raining hard and the Grand Cascapedia is already on the rise. The Bony and Petite move a little slower but the fresh water will make a big difference.

The Bony has a good number of fish and fishing has been pretty good considering the conditions. The Petite Cascapedia is much the same with lower than normal levels, but we are having some good fishing. Water levels on the Grand Cascapedia were the lowest of our three rivers but the rain changed that in a hurry.

  They may have been harder to catch in the warmer weather, but its not because they weren't there!
