Bonaventure & Grand Cascapedia

In case anyone os wondering how the angling will be on these rivers, I offer this update:

I just returned from Salmon Lodge on the Grand Cascapedia with 4 guests plus myself for 3 days. We primarily fished the Bonaventure River, and upper wading sections of the Grand Cascapedia. Our party had no winter draw water, so we were confined to water from the 48 hr draws, and public sections. One of our party had never cast for salmon before, and another has limited experience. My expectation was 5 hook ups for the 15 rod days would have been very good, given the water choices and lack of experience, and the fact that 2 of the 3 days were blazing hot and sunny.

We had 7 hooked and 4 landed. No real pigs, but all good fish that fought well in the cold water. I will post some pics when I can. The water levels were just OK, but the forecast was for 3 days of rain as we left.

The service at the lodge was OUTSTANDING! It is always so refreshing to fish on the Gaspe with professional guides.

I did not fish there last year, but I understand that the runs wee off significantly from previous years. This might be a fluke, but it seemed very early for the numbers of fish that were seen (by all camp guests). Also, we heard through the local shop that they have released 5 fish over 40 lbs on the Grand Cascapedia so far this season.

Hope this is helpful to those planning a trip.
