: Rain Rain and more Rain

The well needed rain has come to the Matane and the Gaspe this weekend. Right now it is pouring rain and forcasts predict it will continue throughout the weekend. It will take days before the river will be fishable again but once that happens, all hell will break loose with 1400 fish in the river...... Lucky for us, we scheduled a trip to Rimouski for the horse show so fishing was off limits for me this weekend anyway. Should be like starting all over once the river settles down. We have approx 1400 fish in, not to mention the continuing influx of fish entering the river. Should be pretty good IF we get a good window of settled weather.

Over 1500 now. But it will probably take some days before new fish comes in, the water is just to high for the fishway...

Fishing has been very good in the last couple days even if the water was colored...
