After a slow start to the season we are slowly seeing things get back to normal. This past weeks high tides brought in a decent run of salmon on the Bonaventure. Our sister lodge Camp Bonaventure reported good numbers of salmon in its lower pools.
I was speaking with ASF's president Bill Taylor this week. Bill was telling me that all the rivers are late this year but starting slowly to see some fish. This was not a record breaking week at the Club but we did catch a number of fine salmon.
Mondays' rain gave us a need boost in water levels and moved the levels up a slight bit. We certainly don't have low water conditions but a nice rain always freshens things up. The Bonaventure river is flowing cold and clear at 43 cubic meters per second.
The weather has also been cooperating, temperatures have not been too warn and we received just the right amount of rain to maintain the levels. The forecast is calling for rain and showers during the first part of next week and clear towards the end.
The fly or the week was the Stone Ghost in sizes 4 and 6. The John Olin, Nagli, Green Highlander, Silver Rat and Langa Fancy also did a very good job. Dry flies have also started produce, however the water is still a little too cool for great dry fly action.
Until next week,
