2007 Salmon Fishing trips to Crown reserve and Larrys Gulch (am I spoiled yet??)
This next fish is 43 Inches long. She took a Green Rat, Mark Delaney and Bryant took 25 minutes to land this one in the rain, she too left the pool in the same shape she came into it. A G Loomis GL 3, 9 foot eight weight, she is a 30 pound fish.
A recent trip to Larry's Gulch was successful with Don MacFarlane and Bryant Freeman sharing the rod in Johnny Sullivan's boat. Johnny Sullivan has been our guide for several years now, and has produced some good fishing for us old lads. Don hooked and landed a nice 12 pounder on a Carter's Bug on June 26th at the Flying Eddy Pool.
Nice fish Don, and not being skunked Bryant hooked and landed a 14 pounder at Pool #5 in the evening of the 26th
The trip to Larry's was one of our highlights this year, hosted by Bill Ensor and the rest of the gang, Doug Haney and Bill pounded Bryant and Don in Cribbage, the third year in a row, is it something they do in Charlotte county that brings the cards to these lads so often? Of course there will be better shots to come as the summer is just beginning.
A nice shot with Mark Delaney and a 12 pounder in a new hole on the Restigouche called Freeman's Run. A nice holding spot above one of the favourite pools on the stretch, located one day when Bryant and Mark went down to the lower stretch to try the main pools.
These two large fish were caught by Danny Bird on dates stamped on the picture, just an example of the kind of fish which ply the Restigouche. Caught at Home pool of Kedgwick Lodge.
Bill Ensor and Bryant went to Larry's Gulch on July 30-Aug1, Bill caught this fish, it was one of 19 caught by the group on the trip. Five Grilse, the rest were salmon, four were over 20 pounds.
