Salmon Lodge Fishing & River Report, Aug 15th to 21st, 2016

The third week of August has been our toughest so far. Warmer then normal air temperatures and little to no rain has made fishing more of a challenge. Water levels on the Bonaventure are slightly below normal for this time of the year, however the temperatures are still favorable at about 58 degrees Fahrenheit . The Bony has a good number of fish especially in our low water pools. Fishing has been good considering the conditions.

 The Petite Cascapedia is much the same with lower than normal levels, water temperatures on the other hand are good, in the 55 degree range. Fishing have been great on the Petite with plenty of action everyday.

Water levels on the Grand Cascapedia are the lowest of our three rivers. The branches are low and not fishable at the moment. We have salmon in many of the pools but the water really too low for good fishing. The main stem is producing and catching has been good granted we are working a little harder to catch them.

The weather man is calling for a good amount of rain on Monday and a mix with showers for the rest of the week, we sure could use it.

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 machine and Silver Rat did the job. The John Olin and Green machine were the hot ones on the Petite. Sizes that are working best are number 8's 10's and 12's.

Until next week,

Tight Lines,
