Bonaventure & Salmon Lodge 19th – 25th Sept

The fishing reports and all the action just keeps coming in week after week from these TOP two destinations. If you ever wanted to fly fishing for Atlantic’s in the world both Bonaventure and Salmon Lodge are the best and most reliable places to visit as you can see from below.


September fishing has been excellent and this past week was no different. We had a wonderful week especially on the  Grand Cascapedia, the Bonaventure and Petite Cascapedia were a little more of a challenge.  Our fall run is coming in strong and most our pools are loaded with salmon . The warm weather has kept our water temperatures just perfect and dry fly’s continue to work well. The Bony, Grand and Peite all received a good amounts of rain and water conditions are at June levels.

“Next weeks forecast is calling for more of the same, warm temperatures and a little rain, should be Great fishing.

The September fly choice is different from any other time of the season. The Red Francis is always the fly of choice this time of the year and this year’s no different. Along with the Red Francis the Alley Shrimp and GP are also doing very well.  As long as our water temperatures stay in the 50’sdry fly’s are working very well. As always, Green, Brown and Blue are the hot ones.
