Wilson’s Miramichi Report for August 15

dscn1582-1200Wilson’s Miramichi Report for August 15 is like an anglers dream come true. We got a nice slow soaking rain over the last three days resulting in a 16 inch rise of water, cool temps both air and water and …………plenty of salmon in the large holding pools. Mountain Channel reported two grilse with sea-lice on them mid last week , perfect. This is exactly what we wish for in August so I suggest you get on the water as soon as possible.

Wilson’s Miramichi Report For July 12th

ASF
Wilson’s Miramichi River report for July 12th . Unfortunately we are back into the heat again . We had a few days of grace with overcast skies and cool temps but not many fish taking . On the positive side we have a fair number of salmon in the cold water pools so we can expect some action early morning and maybe a rise or two in the late evening . Bombers and tiny black hair wings are the order of the day.

Wilson’s Miramichi Spring Fishing Report

Spring April
Wilson’s Miramichi River Spring Fishing Report for May 1st . The water is holding nicely in our area and the weather is superb . You can see here that Sylvain had good luck using a Spey rod while wade fishing along shore . The Spey rod gave him the advantage of reaching well out into the deeper water and after a tip change to get the fly down deep he managed to hook several salmon . The fishing has definitely slowed down but there are still a good number of fish still in our area so the people who can cast well and don’t mind adding a more technical game to their approach will have good fishing for a while yet .

Wilson’s Miramichi Spring Fishing Report April 24

Karl & Gage 2013
I had a great time last night fishing with Karl and Gage . Gage likes to catch the salmon but is not up for handling them . The conditions are near perfect with dropping water levels and very clear again . We are still hooking more MSW salmon than grilse and our best luck is on dark marabou flys .
