Newfoundland Atlantic salmon

I will be heading to Deer Lake Newfoundland. I will be trying Big Falls For a few days then heading to Stephenville Crossing to try my luck with the rivers around there.(Fischells, Robinsons,Southwest). I got a 7wt. z axis switch rod and was hoping to try swinging some flies. I got a guide for this trip as it is a requirement. I was hoping some of you guys could give me a tip or two. I got this rod a few months ago and am still new to two handed rods so any advice would be greatly appriecaited. Thanks

Big Falls should be good fishing now,with water dropping a little after a rain storm came through a few days ago,a couple of more pools that should be good now and are close to Big falls would be Cabin pool and Island pool.South West Brook should be in prime time now and if I were you I would also try Harry's River.Most local fishermen around here use a 9' #8 or 9' #9 rods,so your switch should be nice,I personally use my double handed rods on all rivers,great and small.Have a good trip.
