Thank the Big Guy for today's rain because water levels were continuing to drop. None of the rains over the past couple of weeks raised the water much. That stretch does go up and down quickly after a rain though. Even after a big down pour like today the water could peak late tomorrow and be on its way down by Saturday. Water temperature in the stream is considerably colder then the river so that a big help to the fish. Don't forget to krimp all your barbs down.

where is north pole stream?
The north pole stream runs into the LSW right near the camp for the Charlies Rock Stretch of CR. There is reserved water called the palisades on the section just above the LSW. One of the most beautiful views in the province is just above the camp for the palisades.

Glad to hear there is some water there. Heading up this Sat.1/2 inch rain in headwaters last night won't hurt.

In my humble opinion....... the falls are ok, the pools are not my cup of tea. To small.Casting of 20 foot ledge. I hope they fixed the upper trails since last year as they were terrible.My best guess is they were not done in years. We parked our trucks and walked in. A real joke. Finally found some so called pools. Signs were overgrown and deadfall everywhere. One guy in our group actually called DNR he was so upset. My friends and I all did not enjoy this spot. (bush wacking) Last year was my first and last trip to the palisades... ever.... No offence to anyone. I grew up fishing the main river. Oh I landed 4 today and lost 3 and numerous raised. Crazy day. Fresh fish running like crazy. I wish I didn't have to stop but the inlaws and the laws required me to do so.

Fishing was tough .A few fish around mostly salmon. Water was up a bit but all pools were fishable.Water temp 13-16 C. If you go be careful with garbage and groceries around camp. Had one come right inside while we were in the camp. As usual licenses not available at the blackville ranger office. Had to go without them. BTW party down at Palisides stretch had pretty good fishing.

Yes a bear. Came in camp while we were in there. There was a handful of fish at Lockarts camp and one or 2 here and there at some of the other pools. Guess we caught 3 fish between the four of us.

Just got back from charlies Rock fishing was fantastic water was a little high but the fish where biting.
There were about 50 big fish on the palisades stretch, a few at the falls. Me and my buddy had multiple double headers.. a first for me. Not a big fan of the palisades but wow! havn't seen that many fish in that camp pool in a long time. All the fish we caught where grils some trout..The fish where hard to locate but once ya found them they where a biting, whoever is heading up there this week is going to have allot of fun.... hope the good fishing continues for the next couple of weeks..

Were you fishing the North Pole Palisades or the Charlies rock stretch?

Heading up to the Palasades on Sept 4th. Anyone up there lately? What are the pools and water conditions like. I have been to Sinclair Stretch but not Palasades.

Thanks.

Hey JimH, as in my post above I was into the Palisades early last week. The water was pretty low, but the water temp was in the low to mid 60s. I landed a grilse and a salmon at Table Rock pool. Caught the grilse right off the edge of table rock, fishing from the casting rock with the makeshift bridge, and the Salmon was caught fishing a Shady Lady from down stream up into the table rock pool. Most luck was had down at Camp Pool. We were crossing the stream on the large granite slabs that are right where the little bench is and then walking down the other side of the river to just past the boat. There is no back cast, but a Spey or Switch rod can get you out there. We pulled about 5 grilse and 2 salmon from here. We were fishing right between the line for the boat and the large rocks below, but you have to be able to get out to reach them. Flies of choice were small black flies on number 8 - 12 hooks. Undertakers, Shady Lady, Black Bear Green Butt etc. Good luck and let me know how you make out.
