Overall we've had a good week at camp and good numbers of fish in the book. The weather warmed up considerably on Thursday and the last few days have been hot and sunny with temperatures in the 90's. We continue to have great fishing but the last few days have been more difficult. Mornings and evenings are the time to fish when it gets hot. The Bonaventure continues to produce well and the water temperatures are still cool. We are having a great year on the Petite Cascapedia, our guides are telling me that there are plenty of fresh salmon in almost all the pools. The Grand is also doing well but we could use a couple of rainy days to bump the water levels. Considering the weather we had another great week. The conditions this past week have given us more of a challenge but we are having a great year on all our rivers.
Salmon Lodge regular Pierre Martini puts another one back in the water, this was one of many for Pierre this week.
The hot fly's for the week have been a mixture of dry's and small wets. Green and Dark Brown Bombers were responsible for most of the catches. In the wet fly depatment, the John Olin, Green Butt and Silver Rat did the best. The Picasse and Green Spey were the winners on the Petite. The sizes that are working best are number 8's 10's and 12's.
Like Father Like son, Jean Pierre Martini show his son Pierre just how its done!
Mark Powers from Halifax puts a nice one back on the Grand cascapedia, nice fish Mark!
The weather man shows a bit a rain early next week and temperatures will be cooling down . Maybe this hot weather will produce a thunder storm, we are keeping our fingers crossed.
