Wilson’s Miramichi River Report April 30th

The water level if still higher than normal but fishing is improving daily . We are still catching fish in the back water ( Bogans ) which indicates that the spring migration to sea has not begun in full force . We still have snow in the woods and until it is gone the water will remain cold . The big push to the ocean will not begin until the water warms up so we expect good fishing in the upper reaches of the Miramichi for a while yet . My personal favorite time in spring is when the evenings are longer and the fish can be taken off the top of bars with a sink tip . For now we are still using full sink lines on a cast close to shore . In the first week we were hooking mostly grilse but this week we are seeing some beautiful big salmon .
