Update on trip (s)

OK ...here goes, there are the totals for the entire camp

First leg - main stem of the Restigouche upper section camp: June 14-17 (3 over 4 days), 3 canoes with 2 shared rods and one full rod, 9 hooked and 8 were landed. The largest fish was approximately 25lbs.

Second leg - Matapedia River lower section: June 17-20 (3 over 4 days), 3 canoes with 3 shared rods for all but last day. 2 fish hooked and released (one at 38 inches). The river appeared to be between the end of the Cascaspscal Run and start of the main river run. Only saw one other fish move.

Final Leg - main stem of the Restigouche upper section camp: June 20-22 (2 days over 3), 3 canoes with shared rods. 7 fish hooked and 4 were landed. I personally landed my best two fish ever.

Overall, for an early season trip where you are taking risks with migratory fish, it played out more or less as expected. If i manage to download some photos, I will add to the thread.

The Restigouche has some real problems with the users on the river, imho ...I will outline in another thread.

Tine lines this summer.
