Salmon Lodge River & Fishing report - Sept 14th to 20th, 2015

As our season is slowly winding down and you can defiantly smell fall in the air. Fishing however is holding up well and continues to be very  productive on all our rivers. The weather has been warmer than normal for this time of the year and water temperatures remain above the 50 degree range.  Our water levels are still higher than normal for this time of the season. This summer was a wet one and we’re still benefitting from al the rain. The Bonaventure, Petite Cascapedia and Grand Cascapedia are all a little higher than normal for this time of the season.

 The Grand has been fishing exceptionally well and we've been catching good numbers of salmon every day, September is always a great time to be on the Grand Cascapedia, especially for big salmon, it’s one of our favorite times of the season. The Bonaventure is seeing a good number of fresh fall run salmon  and most of our lower pools have fresh fish. The Petite is also receiving a fall run and fishing has remained excellent.

 Warmer water temperatures are allowing us to keep our dry fly’s on and they continue to produce well. Tube flies are also working well along with some bigger streamers. The hot fly's this week are the Red Francis, John Olin and dry fly’s, in Brown, Green and Blue. Some bigger tunes such as the sun Ray Shadows are also producing some nice fish.

 Until next week,

 Tight Lines,
