Heat wave!

Pat fights this spunky salmon! King of sportfish indeed! (larger version)
We have been in a heat wave for days now. Air temps in the low to mid 30s C every day for days now. I'm a bit surprised with the flow of the river. It is holding up very well. Still above 2m and while the mid day water temps peak around 70-72F, the temp was reading at 66F this morning.

There is a healthy run of grilse on with a mix of about 15% large. Everyone is hooking up and most boats are getting the limit every day. That action is taking place in the early morning and evening. There's no sense beating water in the mid day heat when good success can be had in the cooler mornings and evenings. A good nap in air conditioned comfort and cold beverages is how most afternoons are spent in the heat.

There's showers forecast for Goose Bay today and cooler temps and showers forecasted all over the plateau for this weekend. Hopefully that brings the temps down to be just in time for the building of the tides. That will likely bring a good run of fish!

Check out this snap from last week. Patrick was fighting this powerhouse salmon when his father, John, caught the moment! Great shot!!
