Daniel Porter’s “Jock Scott”

Daniel PorterHi Keith, just a quick note to show you something you might enjoy! (Or possibly your clients!) I just finished this recent oil and I am planning to have it as part of a series that focuses on the more well known classic salmon flies….I did a very small run print off this one (25) and so far the response has been outstanding!!!….anyhow I figured I would share since I know it’s a subject you and I share a common passion for, have a look below.
Hope all is well! Won’t be to long until we are back on the river again!

All my best,
Your friend

Wilson’s Miramichi Ice Run Report for April 11-2016

DSCN1474Wilson’s Miramichji River Atlantic Salmon fishing report and annual Ice run report for April 11-2016. The ice is now completely cleared out and water conditions are perfect . Just four days to go!!!

Wilson’s Miramichi River Ice Report

ice-miramichi-2016Wilson’s April 4-2016 Ice run report . The weather turned cold last night leaving miles of running ice frozen in this morning in the McNamee area. The water is still very high and warm weather returns on Thursday with rain in the forecast too, so we should have an interesting week .There are long sections of the river already open though so I think it is safe to say we will be fishing on April 15th.

Wilson’s Miramichi Ice Run Report for March 30

DSCN1468-1000Spring has arrived, finally ! After a warm rain and a few sunny days the ice is beginning to move on the Miramichi. There is no way to predict when the river will be wide open but most Miramichiers feel confident that we will be fishing by April 15th .

Wilson’s Central NB ATV Report

Courtney-Group-2015-1000Wilson’s Central NB ATV Report for October 24th .Timmy & Melanie Courtney with the crew from “down river” had a good day on the trails this weekend . Not sure how they managed to get this photo and it is probably best not to ask . The ATV trails in central NB are in great shape and the weather has cooperated making for some fantastic riding .

Miramichi Reports Banner Year

Chris-Legere-1200 Hi Keith, Hope all is well and hopefully this year’s Atlantic Salmon numbers are a sign of things to come. After last year, I thought that hooking a trophy would be a something I told my kids about “how we did back in the day”…….I guess I was wrong……and very glad I was wrong. Proper fisheries management “FOR ALL” should and must be followed if we want to keep the “King of all Gamefish” like this in our part of the world. Tight lines!!!!!!

Wilson’s 2015 Cast & Blast Report

Cains fall 2015Wilson’s 2015 Cast & Blast report for Oct 11. The water on both the Cains and Miramichi remains slightly above normal. We are having excellent fishing on the Miramichi with many MSW salmon in the twenty pound range. It is still slow fishing on the upper Cains as of yesterday but that will change soon as the fall migration picks up steam. Upland hunting has been slow so far. We still have too many leaves and with the dry summer it seems that most of the birds are hunkering down in the heavy alder cover . We have rain and wind coming later today and Monday so the leaves will drop quickly and feed will become more plentiful in the easier covers .

Wilson’s Miramichi Report For Sept 26th

IMG_0169-1200Wilson’s Miramichi River Atlantic Salmon report for September 26th . The water is down again but temps are cool and we are catching salmon. As you can see ,anglers are hooking into some monster salmon this fall like this beauty that Vicki landed at a camp in the headwaters of the Miramichi last weekend. Rob did not share the fly pattern in his report to me so if I had to guess I am thinking the Green machine with a white calf tail since that is the fly of choice at Wilson’s so far this fall .
