Salmon Lodge Fishing & River Report Sept 10th to 16th, 2018

The weather man was kind to us this past week giving us the rain we needed. We received  a good rain fall on Tuesday and Wednesday giving our rivers a much needed boost. After being exceptionally low for most of the season our water conditions were much better this week.

The Bonaventure  went 5 cubic meters per second to 7 and Petite Cascapedia from 4 to 6 . The Grand Cascapedia received a good amount of rain as well , water levels are good with temperatures is in the 50 to 55 degree range and flowing at 11 per second from 7. Some beats fished well  while others weren't as productive.

A good number of nice salmon were landed along with a good number of grilse.  Cooler water conditions combined with big tides should be bringing a run of fish in this weekend and next week.

Dry's are still working well, especially the Blue and Dark Brown Bomber. As long as our water temperatures remain in the 50 plus degree range, dry's will continue to be productive.
