Camp Bonaventure River & Fishing Report, July 10th to 16th, 2017

This past week has been the best so far this season. Despite last weeks warm weather and lower than normal water levels, we did do very well on all our rivers.

Our rivers are lower than normal for this time of the season but we still have plenty of water to allow fresh fish to run up. Water temperatures remain favourable in the low 50 degree range and the weatherman is not announcing for hot day in the bear future.

The Bonaventure and Petite Cascapedia are getting a nice run of both salmon and grilse. Water conditions on the Bony got a bump from a day of rain and a couple of thunderstorms in  the hills.  Similar conditions on the Petite Cascapedia has kept the fishing productive as well.  The Grand Cascapedia has been one of the best rivers in 2017. Fishing has been great since day one and this past week has been no exception. Warm weather effects the Grand a little more that the Bony and Petite, by weeks end water conditions were beginning to warm up but the level are great.

2017 hasn't been the easiest but we are doing well despite the tougher than normal conditions. Next week's high tides will certainly bring in more fresh fish and the weather man is announcing some rain and thunderstorms.
