Cains River Trivia Contest

We had a nice raise of water on the Cains again this past weekend so John and I decided to take the 28 foot jet canoe for a fishing tour . The first person to correctly identify the pool we are in will win one day for two rods on the Miramichi on one of Wilson’s private pools . I will post a new hint each day or so until the winner is declared . Contest will run for 5 days .

    My guess is Leighton Pool but many pools on the Cains look alike so it could be anywhere. Thanks,

    Hey Keith,

    Sure looks like Chestnut to me!


  25. Good morning anglers- Looks like we have a fair number of Cains River dwellers in our midst . Thanks for your input and interest , although some of you are close there are only two correct answers to date . The pool we are in was accessed by the big jet canoe but only because the water was high , and we are in the upper stretch ( above RT 123 ). I will anounce the winner on Friday , June 26th .

    Hi: Would it be school house pool.

  27. It must be chestnut.

    Where I can I get a boat like that? (…just in case I win the lottery 🙂 )

  28. Nathan Wilbur says:

    I figure it’s chestnut too, but that was the first reply so I picked something close-by in the upper stretches!

  29. We have four correct answers for the Cains River Trivia contest ,the very first guess ( Silvie Malo-Clark )was the correct one , followed by Tim Smith , Travis Quigley and Nathan Wilbur . So I have decided to give all four individuals a free day of fishing . The date will be Saturday August 1st ( fishing hours are 8 am- noon , then 5 pm – dark ). Winners please contact me to confirm .

    I want to thank all those who participated .

  30. Congrats to Sylvie, Nathan, Travis, and Tim! I hope your day on Wilson’s turns out to be special.

  31. Nathan Wilbur says:

    Hi Keith,
    That’s great! thanks a lot. Maybe I will just give you a call to talk about plans. Can I just use the Wilson’s phone number? You can contact me via email if you wish.

    Thanks again!

  32. Sylvie Malo-Clark says:

    Thank you Keith,

    I can’t wait to fish the Wilson’s water again.


  33. Thanks Keith, I’ll be there for sure. Much appreciated…

    I’ll give you a call this week.
