We finally received a day of rain, not what we were hoping for but rain none the less. The weather system passed a little more to the Northwest than we expected so the Bonaventure head waters didn't get the accumulation they had announced. We did however receive enough to move the flow from 9 Cubic meters a second to 14.
Sunny days and warm weather over the past two weeks have made fishing more challenging, we have plenty of salmon in all our pools but they were a little harder to catch. Last weeks full moon and high tides brought a good run of fresh salmon, we are beginning to see them in our lower pools.The weather man is calling for showers over the next few days as well, keeping our fingers crossed.
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, Black Bear 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.
Until next week,
