Salmon Lodge Fishing Report – June 24th to 30th, 2013

What a great week to be at camp! The fishing keeps getting better and better. Last weeks high tides combined with the much needed rain was the recipe for a wonderful week of fishing! Everybody at camp landed salmon, needless to say we had a group of very happy anglers.

The rain late this week gave our rivers the bump in water they needed. The Bonaventure is at a great level and the water temperatures are perfect, especially for dry fly fishing. The Petite Cascapedia is fishing very well and we haven’t missed in over a week. Fresh fish are running and most of the pools are holding good numbers of fresh salmon. The Grand Cascapedia is “Hot” at the moment and I don’t mean the water temperatures. So far it’s been a great season at both our lodges. We are looking forward to another blessed week on the river.

The ammunition of choice this week were bombers, especially the Green and Dark Brown patterns. Wets alsodid very well ,  the top wet fly’s for the week were the Nagli and Silver Rat. The Blue Charm, Green Highlander and Undertaker did their job as well.

Don’t forget to check out our photo album each week. Along with my weekly river report, I post a number of salmon shots from the past week on our photo gallery page.
