24 fish counted plus estimation of 50 before the dam was close and the fishway opened. Water level is already low. 1 fish caught in town on sunday, 2 lost, that's it.

Matapedia seems to be fine for this date, 3-4 fish caught everyday and 2-3 on Glenn Emma, which is in the normal range for mid-june.Many BIG fish (lost a 30-35 pounder last saturday) Causapscal is on fire, 4 to 6 fish caught everyday for 8 anglers. Heard Bonaventure already has a run of grilse, and have some fish sparse everywhere.

News from the North Shore are good, seems salmo salar rediscovered these rivers. In the Saguenay, a friend caught the first of the year on the Ste Marguerite, there were 3-4 fish in the Glass Pool.

Hey Mike,

Commin out of the woodwork are we? Its that time of year. Sounds like Pierre has a good sense of what is happening up there. Not happy to hear the water is low. Don't want low water up there this early in the season. Not a great sign, although it is supposed to rain for the next few days. See you soon my man......
