Cascapedia and Bonnie

Well after several years of lottery losses, I finally won on both the Bonnie, and D2/E2 (wade) of the Grand Cascapedia.

I will receive the call in a few weeks, so I have time to mull over my decisions.

Has anyone fished both wade sections of the GC? If so, what was your experience? How did you find the pool rotations? Did you prefer the lake branch over the salmon branch?

If time was an issue, would you do you spend more time on the Bonnie Vs GC?

I understand that the calendar will influence what sector to fish on the bonnie, but what are your favourites? Technical water, scenery etc.

I plan on getting at least 1 guided day on the Bonnie, but with only a handful of days to fish, I am wondering how I should divide my time.

If I was able to frequent this water, I would be willing to do the leg work and invest the time, however, with such a small chances to win a spot on these rivers, and the cost for the passes, I am hoping to be as informed as possible when I make my decision.

Take care,

Eamn

Hi Brian,


Any chance you could copy and paste the GC info to me? I drew lucky #13 on the wading sector. I'm looking at going around the 3rd week of June. I'm planning on filling out the dates on the Bonnie and entering the 48 hour draws while I'm up there. Any info or tips is appreciated. Thanks!

Ben

Hi,

If you get a chance - after your trip - I would be interested in finding out details about accommodation for the wading sector of the Cascapedia.

Thanks.

Thank you Brian, I really appreciate your input.
You were very helpful when I fished the Cap Chat, so I will trust your words again.

Eamonn you' re in deep S##t now
Before I finalize an answer ( PM message about 80% done) ,do you and Ben have the map of the area?
Are either of you considering bringing a canoe or inflatable ?
It's not apparent at 1st glance but Montgomery (#80) is NOT in the Nov. 01 draw but is a 48 hr option only .
LEAVE YOUR SKAGGIT LINES AT HOME! and practice your single Spey casts . You're all alone up there with yer fishing partner and one doesn't have to show off with any fancy casts . Stealth is the name of the game .

Thanks, Brian. I have no plans on bringing any sort of watercraft. I was considering hiring a guide for at least one day to get the lay of the land. I'm fine with single spey. I have to make sure my partner practices before the trip, though (old dog, new tricks). I downloaded the map that's on the CS's website. Thanks!
