The York is just gorgeous today... funny you ask, I was just driving back from the Ste-Marguerite area this morning and took a few shots in Sector 6.



I can pretty well see all the bottom of MurdocH!!


Cheers!!

SO ...

The season has been open for several days. Enquiring minds want to know

Does anyone have early-season stories from the York???

The salmon world awaits ...

Well.........
Tomorrow will be our first day in Sector 6.
The river is clearing up, but still a little " blurry "...so, we are seeing fish everywhere!!!! ha!!
I mean, some spots look very suspicious.... could be fish or could be rocks.

Ah!! It's Sooooo stressing !!!!

( sneak preview of Dartmouth Ladder pool today !!!)



Sweet dreams!

I will be fishing Gaspe from June 6-11 (York and Dartmouth). This will be my first spring visit to these rivers. I have tied a large quantity of flies, mostly in sizes 2 and 4. Any reason to go smaller and tie up a bunch of 4's, or is it generally the big stuff only?

Thanks!
Troy

Tie a couple of Pompier in #6 and #8 just in case.

I was just getting to sector 4 on the York a couple of years ago and a very nice gentleman, whose name I forget now, was walking out and told me his "secret" for the week was to drop down in size (water dropping) and left me a #6 Pompier in the keyhole of my car door.

Needless to say I wasn't going to look a gift horse in the mouth, and it was such a nice little tie, I ran it through the next pool. Long story short, that little fly scored all over the peninsula and saved my trip.

So tie some smaller or just bum a fly off of some nice soul on the river. Your choice ;-)

-Chris

Bonsoir Chris,
I must agree with you..... I know a few guys ( k... girls! too) and witnessed catches early in June.......large salmon on NO:6 and even smaller.!!! (single hooks !!)
High water conditions, cold water (floating lines and tippet).

I also believe.dry fly in early June is a must .... ( no matter what color the water and temp...)
If the fly is in your fly box, it won't catch a fish!!

I also, wanted to wish you an excellent season... !!
Looking forward to read you again!!
I know you explore different waters.... let us know!!!

Fish are in...!!
I have this Thing for the St.Jean... one landed yesterday.and a large salmon won' the battle today... ( good!! he's still in the river!!)


Bonne saison!!

A..
