Camp Bonaventure Fishing & River Report July 23rd to 29th, 2018

We finally received a bit of rain, not what we were hoping for but rain none the less. The Bonaventure,  Petite and Grand Cascapedia's are getting very low, the rain helped a bit but we sure could use a good couple of rainy days.

The weather system passed a little more to the Northeast so the Grand Cascapedia received more rain than the Bonaventure and Petite Cascapedia.  The Grand went from 10 cubic meters per second to 20 overnight, giving it a small but much needed boost. The Petite Cascapedia went from 7 to 11 and the Bonaventure from 9 to 15  not much but new water is nice.

 Sunny days and warm weather over the past two weeks have made fishing  more challenging, we have plenty of salmon in all our pools but they were a little harder to catch.  Last weeks full moon and high tides brought a good run of fresh salmon in our rivers as well. The weather man is calling for showers over the next few days as well, keeping our fingers crossed.

 The hot fly's for the week have been a mixture of dry's and small wets. Green and Dark Brown Bombers were responsible for most of the catches.  In the wet fly department, the John Olin, Black Bear Green Butt and Silver Rat did the job, the Green Machine is catching up pretty quickly as one of the best fly's. The John Olin and Green machine were the winners on the Petite. The sizes that are working best are number 8's 10's and 12's.

Until next week,

Tight Lines,
