Camp Bonaventure Fishing & River Report Sept 10th to 16th, 2018

The weather man was kind to us this past week giving us the rain we needed. We received  a good rain fall on Tuesday and Wednesday giving our rivers a much needed boost. After being exceptionally low for most of the season our water conditions were much better this week. 

  Congratulations to long time Camp Bonaventure friend Lori Sullivan, here she is with a nice Petite Cascapedia Salmon. Nice one Lori!

Some beats fished well  while others weren't as productive.  A good number of nice salmon were landed along with a good number of grilse.  Cooler water conditions combined with big tides should be bringing a run of fish in this weekend and next week.

  Jean Charbonneau has been coming to Camp Bonaventure for many years, he’s a good friend and great angler. Congratulations Jean!

Dry's are still working well, especially the Blue and Dark Brown Bomber. As long as our water temperatures remain in the 50 plus degree range, dry's will continue to be productive.
