Salmon fishing summary
by Bruce Patterson

Aug 26th All salmon fishermen are hoping for a late run, but it does not look good now for this season. Gaspe rivers are falling again but salmon fishing is slow,. Salmon fishing is catch and release on all three rivers.I had a chance to fish zone 1 on st Jean river today. released a nice 8 lb fresh salmon. Had a nice morning..A count was made in July which shows less than half the number of salmon that should be in Gaspe rivers at this time. NEW on salmon page,..salmon pools on York river, and where the names originated. ZEC GASPE is asking that all salmon be registered whether tagged or releaed . .striped bass are now in at Haldimand and in Barachois but cannot be killed before July 26th and then only one per day and one is the possession limit..

How the pools on York river got their name.
