Salmon Lodge Fishing & River Report July 11th to 17th, 2016

Overall we've had a good week at camp with decent numbers of fish in the book. The weather warmed up considerably on this week and the last few days have been hot and sunny with temperatures in the high low 30'sand very humid, definatly not the best fishing conditions. We continue to have good fishing but the last few days have been more of a challange due to the sunny and hot days.

The Bonaventure continues to produce well and water temperatures are still pretty cool, especially in the upper sections of the river. We are having a good season on the Petite Cascapedia as well, our guides are seeing plenty of fresh salmon in almost all the pools with new ones coming in on every tide.. 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 on the Grand. The conditions this past week have given us more of a challenge but we're still catching them!

The hot fly's for the week have been a mixture of dry's and small wets. Green, Blue and Dark Brown Bombers were responsible for most of the catches.  In the wet fly department, the John Olin, Green Machine and Stone Ghost came out in front for the week, the Langa Fancy is catching up pretty quickly as one of the best fly's. The John Olin and Picasse were the winners on the Petite. The sizes that are working best are number 8's and 10's .

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.
