Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions for the Miramichi River at McNamee on August 19th . Big question, what does all this high water mean for our upcoming fall run . The picture posted today shows a tiny spring that always dries up by early July . This high water is the same for all brooks and swamps that make up the Miramichi watershed . Normally a guide on this river is never one to complain about extra water , but we are concerned about what this means for our fall run . Over the last three or four days we are seeing more and more fresh -run salmon travelling and now that the river height is getting down to what would be considered a good June level , anglers in the upper river pools can expect good fishing from now on . As the water drops off to a normal late summer level we are predicting the entire river system to really turn on for the fall . We hope the “fall run ” will come in on normal schedule and all camps and guides have an excellent fall .
