The news from the Gaspe is good. I spoke with Darlene in the Grand Cascapedia office, and she said that, while it started slow, the fish are now in in droves and the fishing is hot. As of Friday, they had almost 500 fish to the season (roughly) with a few in the 40 lbs class, and a few more in the 30's. My dad was staying at one of the camps for a night, en route back from the Restigouche, and he said two fisherman were back in camp by 9:30 am, having caught their quota for the day. Meanwhile, I've seen and heard solid reports from the Bonnie. Seems to be fishing beautifully. However, they're meant to get some heavy rain this week so I don't know how that will change things. Also don't know how the other rivers are fishing, but that's the intel I have.
Hope you have a good trip! I'll be up there later this summer. Already it looks better than last summer.
