Camp Bonaventure Fishing & River Report June 27th to July 3rd, 2016

 

Just another a great week to be at camp. Great water conditions combined with huge tides and good numbers of fresh salmon was the perfect recipe for bunch of happy anglers! Water condition on all our rivers couldn’t be better, temperatures are still cool, levels are a little higher than normal for this time of the season and there are plenty of fish to go around. The weather man continues to be good to us with a couple of rainy days each week and a couple of cloudy ones thrown for good measure. Everybody at camp landed salmon, needless to say we had a group of very happy fishermen.

Last weeks rain maintained our rivers and kept them great shape.perfect. The Bonaventure is at a perfect level flowing at 35 Cubic Meter per second, wonderful for dry fly fishing. The water temperatures are in the low 50’s.  The Petite Cascapedia is fishing well and we haven't missed in over a week. Fresh fish are running and most of the pools are holding fresh salmon, the Petite is also cool in the low 50’s. The Grand Cascapedia is fishing very well, it was beginning to get low but rain in the hills on Friday brought it back to perfect levels . Rain over the weekend combined with big tides should give us another week to look forward to.
