Salmon Lodge Fishing Report Aug & Sept

Salmon Lodge Fishing Report, It’s hard to believe that August has already come and gone.  August fishing was excellent, a little warmer than June and July with mixed bag of conditions but overall it was a great month to be on the river. The last two weeks of August gave us some of the best dry fly fishing of the season, water temperatures were perfect and our pools were producing very well. We are now into the first week of September and our pools are full of salmon, both older ones and fresh fall run fish. We had an excellent week at both our lodges with plenty of big fish landed and many others lost and missed. The Bonaventure and Petite Cascapedia are seeing an excellent run of late season salmon and river conditions are good. The Grand Cascapedia is also in great shape and fishing has been excellent.  The weather man is calling for a bit of rain on Monday and Tuesday, we could use a bit.

Salmon Lodge Fishing Report, September is by far my favorite time of the season, water temperatures are perfect and we always receive just the right amount of rain the keep the rivers levels perfect.  Our pools are loaded with salmon at this time of the season and our bright fall run of bright fish are coming in. This has been a wonderful season, one of the best I’ve seen .We have a camp full of very happy anglers!

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 flies are working very well. As always, Green, Brown and Blue are the hot ones.

2016 is filling up very quickly, we still have a couple of opening here and there. If you would like to fish at Camp Bonaventure or Salmon Lodge next season, now is the time to contact us in our UK office 0044 (0)1603 407596
