Camp Bonaventure Fishing and River Report, June 25th to July 1st, 2018

So far this past week has been the best of our 2018 season . Water levels and temperatures are just perfect and combined with this weeks high tides and new moon, conditions were just right. Our lower pools, on the Bonaventure are fishing extremely well and giving up  salmon every day.

The  Bonaventure is in  normal June flow for the end of June and dry fly fishing is picking up. The Petite Cascapedia, a later river than the Bony and Grand is also  fishing  well. The big run on the Petite Cascapedia usually takes place in late June and early July and this year seems to be the same. The Grand Cascapedia continues to produce well and we caught a number of fine salmon this past week .

On the Petite and Grand this weeks favorites have been the Stone Ghost, Silver Rat and John Olin, in sizes 4, 6 and 8 . The Nagli was our big produce on the Bonaventure in sizes 6 and 8 . We also caught a few on tubes including some nice fish taken on micro-tubes as well . Bombers, especially those tied in Green and Dark Brown patterns are the favorites as usual.

Thursdays heavy rain gave our rivers a much needed boost and hopefully entice more salmon to head up stream.

Until next week,

Tight lines,
