Our guests at Salmon Lodge are all very happy after another great week on the river. Water conditions on the Grand Cascapedia are good at the moment but we could use a little rain to freshen things up a bit. The gin clear Bonaventure is in normal June flow and dry fly fishing has been Great. The Petite Cascapedia, a later river than the Bony and Grand is also beginning to fish well. The big run on the Petite Cascapedia usually takes place in late June and early July.
Salmon Lodge guide Clement Bernier is just about to release Jerry Jenkins first Grand Cascapedia salmon,congradulations Jerry!
This weeks hot fly's have been the Undertaker, Stone Ghost, Silver rat and Green Highlander,in sizes 6 and 8 . Tube fly's are continuing to do very well, including some nice fish taken on micro-tubes. Bombers, especially tied on Green and Dark Brown patterns are hot and responsible for most of the fish this past week. The weather man is calling for showers on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday, can't wait!
Salmon Lodge regular Brian Spence and guide Patrick Cyr release a nice Cascapedia salmon.
