This will be really short because I'm about to leave for a week in a few minutes. I'll try to add more when I return. Fly sizes can be anywhere from 12s to 2s. Your sunray shadows will work well . . . I actually use them all the way down to tubes that are 15mm in length. The rivers are crystal clear, especially at that time of year and great for dead-drift dry flies as well (bombers, etc). They're some of the best dry fly salmon rivers anywhere.

Chris,

Sorry I meant to post this sooner, but had one of those weeks,

The Picasse (like Jumbo said) and Magog Smelt are my two top producers on the Gaspe. Other flies that work well are the Pompier, Black bear green butt, Green Highlander, Night Hawk, Brysonís Sheep, Muddlerís, Tiger Ghost, Lady Caroline, Mackenzie, Akroyd and Annís Emerald. If you need patterns or pictures of any of them let me know, a few of them are kind of obscure. And donít forget the Bomberís! Like bill said, the Gaspe has some of the best dry fly salmon fishing in the world and you will be there at a good time. Get some in white, brown, yellow, black and green.

As for size you will probably have to tie them in a very large range. The water level on the Gaspe Rivers can fluctuate greatly. You will probably not need any 3/0 flies (I use them at the beginning of the season) but if you run into high water you may need some larger ones up to #2ís. If the water is extremely low you may need some down to size 10.

Charlie

Just back from my trip. Will post more later. But the version I tie of the Picasse (like the fly that Marc Leblanc has sent me) is slightly different. It uses silver pheasant as a front hackle (no Amherst pheasant) and we also use jungle cock. We also add about four strands of black krystal flash to the wing.

Here are some additional flies I've found quite productive: blue charm, cosseboom, black ghost (in small sizes, too), undertaker, both green and black wing stoneflies. These stoneflies are unlike stoneflies you're likely to have seen anywhere, but they're very productive flies that work well. . . pics attached. The hackle is tied horizontally on a pin that's tied to the body with a 90į bend topped with a small plastic bead. One of the best (and most traditional) flies on the Grande Cascapedia (not as crytal clear as the other two) is the Lady Amherst.

I know the stonefly patterns are very popular on the Gaspe rivers, but I'm not sure how they should be fished-----regular wet fly swing, dead drift, stripped???
Please clue me in.

As a regular swung wet fly. Also, one other pattern that finds use is the black dose.

Since you're going in August don't forget the small stuff and flies that can be hitched. There are fish caught in that area very early in the year on small doubles with not much more than a touch of bear hair, peocock body, and jungle cock on a #10.
