Finally we got some rain, not the 40 to 50 mm they were announcing but enough to freshen up the water, supposed to get more this week. I think they should hang the worst weatherman each year, just to give the others an incentive! The water levels are low on all our rivers but we have plenty of salmon in our pools. Fishing has been very good but we are working a little harder. The Bonaventure, Petite and Grand all have good runs of fish and there are plenty just waiting to enter the river on the next bump in water. Overall we have low water but the water temperatures are fine and we are catching plenty of salmon.
Jean Roy releases a bright silver salmon back to the Bonaventure, nice fish Jean.
Small flys have been working the best, in particular the Undertaker, John Olin and Green butt in sizes 8 10 and 12. We are still doing very well on bombers especially the Green, Dark Brown and Blue.
Camp Bonaventure regular Francis Gauthier never misses, good going Francis!
We could really use some rain, all the rivers on the Peninsula are low at the moment but certainly very fishable. We are fortunate that our rivers run cold from the Chic-Choc mountains and remain cool even when the weather warms up.
Benoit Dubord with his first Atlantic Salmon, congradulations Benoit!
Dominique & Gerard Dubord with their first Atlantic, a good start guys!
Until next week, tight lines,
