The 17th Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships 2016 have
been awarded to Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada.
The dates for the CFFC being the 27th August - 1st
September, a week before the World Fly Fishing Championship
in Vail, Colorado.
The River Du Diable
The river Du Diable which
runs from its headwaters in Mont-Tremblant National Parc,
has been chosen for the 2016 Commonwealth Fly Fishing
Championships. The Diable (Devils) River is a fairly wide
mountain-fed freestone river with an expansive watershed
which makes it very responsive to precipitations. As water
levels drop to their lowest levels in August and September,
the features of the Diable river become much better defined
and the slower pace of the currents offer the best dry fly
opportunities of the year. Within the 15 kilometer fishing
sector, the Diable River consists mainly of long stretches
of pocket water, at times deep, with scattered but poorly
defined pools. Streamers and nymphs are recommended for the
most part with good dry fly opportunities towards the end of
chosen lakes for the CFFC are Lac Long , Lac Renversis and
two others yet to be confirmed.
Awaiting more info on the Lakes but
will post as soon as available
