Wilson’s Miramichi Report Aug 2nd

[singlepic=853,520,390]
As you can see the water is still low . Things have improved a bit with the recent light rain and cooler temps but we are in desperate need of a few good rains to soak the ground and bring the river and water table back up to normal . We have a bunch of salmon in our cold water holding pools but they are not taking of course . It looks like a good weekend to get caught up on your chores around the house so you are ready to go just as soon as the river improves . One of the most memorable weeks of fishing we had here in the last twenty years was immediately following a low water period like this one year in August when John & Jean with EJ caught a cool rain that brought the river up ten inches and all the fish moved .

  1. Was that about 8 years ago, Keith? I recall the same thing -it rained the day I went to a camp below Doaktown and they had not been catching anything. It was about Aug 5-6, I recall. The next morning the river was up and it was just full of fish. And they were taking, too.
    Hopefully we will get a repeat this year.
    cheers
