We have had some fantastic weeks so far Atlantic Salmon Fishing Camp Bonaventure Canada with nearly everyone coming back with great stories and excellent pictures.
Over the last week at camp we have had good numbers of fish in the book. The weather warmed up considerably on Tuesday and the last few days have been hot and sunny with temperatures in the high 20’s and very humid, not the best fishing conditions. We continue to have great fishing but the last few days have been more of a challenging due to the sunny days. Mornings and evenings are the time to fish when it gets hot.
The Bonaventure continues to produce well and the water temperatures are still pretty cool, especially in the upper sections of the river. Bill and his wife Suzanne were into six nice salmon on Friday while fishing way up on the Bonaventure. We are having a good season on the Petite Cascapedia, our guides are seeing plenty of fresh salmon in almost all the pools. The Grand is also doing well but we could use a couple of rainy days to bump the water levels. Considering the weather they have had another great week on the Grand. The conditions this past week has given them more of a challenge but everyone still catching them! Atlantic Salmon Fishing Camp Bonaventure Canada
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 department, the John Olin, Green Butt and Silver Rat did the job; the Green Machine is catching up pretty quickly as one of the best fly’s. The John Olin and Green machine were the winners on the Petite. The sizes that are working best are number 8’s 10’s and 12’s.
The weatherman shows a bit of rain early next week and temperatures will be cooling down. Maybe this hot weather will produce a thunderstorm; we are keeping our fingers crossed. Atlantic Salmon Fishing Camp Bonaventure Canada
