Camp Bonaventure Fishing Report Sept 16th to 22nd, 2013

It’s strange how one week can be so different from the next, when it come to fishing that’s parr for the course I guess. Don’t get me wrong, we did manage to land a good number of salmon this week but the cold weather and two nights of frosty temperatures made us work a little harder. During cold snaps like we just experienced our water cools down really quickly. The weatherman is calling for a bit of rain and much warmer temperatures for the rest of next week.

Camp Bonaventure regular Elaine Landry with a nice fall run salmon. Elaine always fishes with us at this time of the season, her favourite time of the season.

We have been catching our fish on the Red Francis and Alley Shrimp. When the water is cooler use a sink tip, it get the fly down a bit and it’s much more productive. Other patterns that have been working, the  Cascade, Flame Thrower and Collie Dog. Dry’s weren’t on the top of the list this week but we did catch a few on  a dark Brown Bomber. 

Sam Jewell likes to get out of the New Mexico heat in September and get his feet in the cool Bonaventure river.

One more wee until the 2013 season ends, it passes so fast.

Until next week, tight lines,
