Hooked two on the Grand Cascapedia today, including a real big fella, who unfortunately threw the fly after a few minutes. Water is coming down (the river has been closed the last two days; the Cascapedia experienced a 4.5 foot raise of water) with visibility of @ 4-5 feet.
The Bonaventure River is up 1 foot from a heavy rain last night. Water levels are those of late June; in other words, more or less perfect. A friend landed a 40 pound hen on the Petite Cascapedia today.
The fish are here in excellent numbers. The month of August should supply some of the finest fishing in recent memory. Anyone booked in on the Grand Cascapedia had best tie some good knots and check their supply of backing.
