Great reports smolt, takes me back to the last time i was up to the matapedia. I fished three days in July/02 with only two raised fish. The thing that sticks in my mind from your post is the 15lb hen. Sad to hear that they still kill big spawners!!! I watched an 18lb hen killed in Heppel Pool on that last trip and thats probably why i haven't been back since,,,,or maybe its monetary . I also checked the log at the station in Causapscal and a 35lb hen had made her way through there earlier in the day. What a shame.
again, nice report and good to hear how well the river fished for you.

Hey Charlie, lovely looking machine! I have gone to the krystal flash tail exclusively for salmon. I fish it 'regular" for trout in small sizes
