Condtions on the Gaspe

Fishing conditions on the Gaspe are just about as difficult as I have ever seen in them in 26 years. We have extremely low water levels. Fortunately the water temperatures are good (high 50's and low 60's) now. There were very warm water temps a few weeks ago and there were fish kills on several rivers.

The river that we have had the best success on is the Grande River because the upper part of the river benefits from some springs and a lack of cutting. I suspect there are lots of fish in the estuaries awaiting the next decent bump of water. It doesn't look like we will get one ahead of this week's full moon, though.

Our friends from Eastern Fly Fishing are in camp and have had decent luck on the Grande; hopefully the York will treat us well tomorrow!

Send us some rain!!!
