Salmon Lodge Fishing & River Report June 26th to July 2nd 2017

Last weeks fishing was controlled by the weather, some days were rainy and cool while others were warmer and sunny. The high tides associated with the full moon at the end of last week brought in a nice run of salmon. It seems the Bonaventure and Petite Cascapedia are about two weeks behind schedule this season but the Grand seem to right on schedule.

Our lower pools are in good condition and holding fresh salmon, water conditions on the Bonaventure and Petite all our rivers are a little lower than normal for this time of the year. We'd like to see a couple of rainy days to freshen thing up a bit.

The Bonaventure's flowing at 20 cubic meters per second with water temperatures in the 50 degree range. The Petite Cascapedia is flowing at 18 and fishing very well. The Petite received a nice run of fresh salmon during last weeks high tides . Most pools on the Petite are holding fish and  water temperature are in the low 50's.
