Charlie Bill,

Glad you had a good trip. Unfortunately I will not be going up any more this year. I will be going to Montana in September. Let us know how you do in NB.

wrke Hi Charlie
Yes, was up for my normal week on the Grande, Petite and Bonaventure. Upper Grande had very little water when we fished it, but the Petite and Bonnie were in great shape. My first grilse ever in 9 years on these rivers. Bob and I didn't catch any big fish this year . . . all looked like they came from a cookie cutter . . . 13-16 lbs. All fresh, bright and feisty. 4 fish on the next to the last day on dead drift dries. There was one fish over 30 lbs in camp for the week from the Petite. Off to NB for a couple of weeks in Sept. Will you get up there again this year?

Charlie Hey Bill!

Did you go up yet this year? And if so how did you do?

07-22-2005 10:43 AM
wrke It was a June fish. Greg said it measured 45" x 23" and was estimated at between 35-37 lbs. Size 8 green stonefly.

Bugman A question ... Is Mr. Pearson's amazing fish a recent catch or an early June fish?

It would be great if fresh fish of this size were coming up the rivers in mid-July!

A few years ago, I remember seeing a fresh fish of at least 42 inches in the bottom of Grande Fourche (Sector 2 on the York).

The time???

Last week of September.

Good Season

Thanks for the report Jim, it looks like the St. Jean is regaining some of its former glory (c&r paying off). What do you think Anne? It looks like it is fishing really consistently this year. It looks like your clients are having more than their share of success (wouldn't have anything to do with the quality of the guiding would it? ) Jim forget the martinis nobody has better scotch than Charlie.

Bugman Thanks Charlie - our Gaspe trip really worked out well, despite the shocking lack of quality Martinis and freshly-barbequed Hot Dogs at the Fort Ramsay.

Fall steelheading EH??? This sounds great! Steelhead fishing is very relaxing for me, as I never actually hook a fish. I watch Axe drag them in, and practice my spey casting.

I find it to be easy fishing - totally undisturbed by annoying strikes.

A quick report (second hand) from the Humber River in Newfoundland - a couple of our buddies have just started their trip on this great river. I think they are fishing below Big Falls in the Deer Lake area.

My second-hand sources say that the Humber is low and fish are stacked up in relatively few spots. One friend had a great first day - 3 hookups, 2 fish to the net! I assume that they were grilse, but my contact did not say.

Atlantic Salmon everywhere - GREAT!!!

Nice mid-season count on the York, EH? I think I saw a monster in White House with a hook scar from Brian's fly!

Take care!

Charlie Cool report Jim,

I'm glad you and Axel had a good trip. I'm bumbed Brian, Tony, Rick and me didn't get a chance to see the two of you up there this year. Drop me a line in the fall. We will have to do some steelheading.

Bugman Hi Ann, Jim Corrigan here. Thanks for getting my little Gaspe collage up on this site! As well, I'm proud to be in the 'Testimonials' section of your own website.

Sounds like the fish are in the York! We saw a substantial number of massive fish when we stopped for a peek at White House Pool.

I'll hope for rain for the Gaspesie - bonne peche!

Salar-1 Hi Ann
Nice pic's. However,The Madeleeeene looks rather low !
Folk that have fished the York, have mentioned that the river had few fish and we were all waiting anxiously for the count ! Some very experienced fishermen were worried about the river !
BTW,met up with Seth Harris on the Petite Cascapedia,right after his York fishing ,and he THOROUGHLY enjoyed it ,and your guiding service .

QuebecSporting Hey Jim!!
Fishing Secrets???????????? Who can hold them inside???????????

I just knew it!!!!!!!

I respect that, though..... quite a few anglers here know what I mean!!
I figure, hey!! they are not stopping by for a chat......... it's because they are fishing hard and catching fish!!!

(Jim here are your photos.....)

Oh!! York mid-season count: (official count: 879 salmon / 177 grillses (17%) for a total of 1045. Some pools were not counted, but it gives us a good idea of the runs .

Bonsoir Axel & Jim!!

(bravo ils sont tous encore l'eau!!)
