Miramichi – We are now approaching the “in-between” season as the last of spring salmon is winding down, and the brights haven’t yet arrived. There are some reports of trout, although most say they are black trout. There are hordes of smelt in some areas and lots of bass to contend with.
W. W. Doak and Sons in Doaktown said spring salmon angling was quietly winding down, but there were still salmon and grilse around, with some reported in the Boiestown area last weekend. However, they are tougher to catch. There have been reports of some black trout. Water conditions were good.
Flies of choice were Muddlers, and Mickey Finn and Black Ghost streamer patterns for trout.
