Camp Bonaventure Fishing & River Report - Sept 14 to 20 , 2015

Our season is slowly winding down and you can defiantly smell fall in the air. Fishing however, is holding up well and continues to be very  productive on all our rivers. The weather's been warmer than usual and water temperatures remain above the 50 degree range.  Water levels are higher than normal for this time of the season. This summer was certainly a wet one and we’re still benefitting from all the rainfall. The Bonaventure, Petite Cascapedia and Grand Cascapedia are all a little higher than normal for this time of the season.

 The Grand has been fishing exceptionally well and we've been catching good numbers of salmon every day. September is always a great time to be on the Grand Cascapedia, especially for big salmon, it’s one of our favorite times of the season. The Bonaventure is seeing a good number of fresh fall run salmon  and most of our lower pools are holding fresh fish. The Petite is also receiving a nice late run, fishing has been excellent.

 Warmer water temperatures are allowing us to keep using dry's as they continue to be big producers. Tube flies are also working well along with some bigger streamers. The hot fly's this week are the Red Francis, John Olin and dry fly’s, in Brown, Green and Blue. Some bigger tunes such as the sun Ray Shadows are also producing some nice fish.
