Wilson’s Miramichi Report August 27th

As you can see the water is at it’s lowest point all summer . These last two hot days did not do us any favor but there is good news in the forecast. Light rain coming tonight and showers all week combined with the cool late August nights will make the world of difference .Reports from the estuary are very encouraging as well so keep the faith folks, the river always turns around and with just a little luck we will be in for a great fall season . We have only a few slots open so so get your name in now .

    In my relatively brief 10 seasons of close contact with the Miramichi I’ve only seen the water this low once before, and just about this time of the year too. We had a hard frost and then some grey rainy weather. There were a lot of fish in the river, and we did very well on them with the tiniest of flies including some #12 dries, tied by Willy Bacso, that I haven’t used since. It was great fun. I’d love to see that happen again.
    That’s one of the great things about the Miramichi. In high water we have a big river, and that has its own excitement, but when it is low it becomes very intimate – almost an entirely different river.
