Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 28, 2012

Rain on this past weekend, and more this week, certainly helped river conditions, adding oxygen to the water and raising the levels to spring high, or even higher.  Although a bit too much water for the present, it should be very beneficial for the rivers in the next couple of weeks, and should bring in… Continue Reading

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 21, 2012

The two key words this week are “slow” and “low”, and by the weather forecast, we might add “warm”. The traps nets at both Cassilis and Millerton were averaging less than five fish a day. There are small squirts of fish moving through, but in no great numbers. A few were seen jumping on the weekend in the city area. So, we are still in the waiting mode for the June run to begin. However, the fish go by their own calendars and they know water conditions a lot better than we do, so we have to trust them and be patient. Continue Reading

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 14, 2012

The counting trap at Cassilis on the Northwest was averaging a fish every other day, while Millerton on the Main Southwest was averaging about six a day. A positive is found in an email below about the Penobscot River in Maine. Continue Reading

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 7, 2012

Generally, angling was slow across the system, with a spattering of bright fish here and there, but no concentrated run. The weather from Sunday on has also been a contributing factor with few anglers out in the cold, windy, rainy and drizzly conditions. The one bright spot was the Juniper area of the Main Southwest, where the sea trout were providing good fishing.

A reminder that as of June 1, 2012, all angling above the Wayerton Bridge on the Northwest Miramichi, above the Square Forks on the Sevogle and above Catamaran Brook on the Little Southwest is catch and release. Hooks can be barbed, but check the regulations for clarification on some of the Crown Reserve Stretches where Hook and Release had been practiced for some time, and required barbless hooks.

As well, with these regulations, anglers are well advised to respect trespassing on private property without permission. Don’t assume you have the right to go where you please. Be courteous. Continue Reading
