Wilson’s Miramichi Report For June 1st

Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions for the Miramichi River near McNamee for June 1st . The river is in absolutely superb condition as we enter the critical month of June . The water is up again this week app. 10 inches and staying cool . Farmers are complaining about the wet soggy weather and even I am not happy that I have 250 yards of top soil to spread , and can’t , but this is what we need right now . We are receiving reports of some nice salmon being caught already . The DFO science people are predicting another good year for Atlantic salmon and from what we see so far that is what we are in for . For those with the urge to get into “the best of the best” I suggest getting on the water now . You might fish all weekend without a strike but when it does happen you are not going to get a better fish on a fly-rod than these early run salmon . I fished the Cains this week with mixed results , the water is high and trout are on the move . I managed two nice 18 inchers one evening on a #10 green machine with white calf tail .

    Came back from camp on Sunday after fishing in Blackville May 31 and June 1,2. On 31 we rolled three fish that never came back – travelers- and saw one loose fish roll. I would guess part of a pulse of fish that moved up with the small raise of water last week. We saw one more salmon roll in three days of fishing. It is very early yet, but so far, at least for us a little slower beginning than 2011.
