The water is coming down nicely on the Miramichi but still a little high . We are seeing plenty of fish and hook-ups are frequent , but short . Most takes are short pulls so you have to be on the ball and ready to set . The big spey rods are great for casting long lines but if you are just learning to spey then leave it on the shore for this kind of fishing . The guides notice a big difference in success with the single handed rod this week . Our big fish of the week was a nice 41 inch “fresh-run” hen taken on a sinking line and large streamer . Most of the other fish were dark .
The Cains ( headwaters ) is still good for water but not much happening yet as for numbers . Joe is doing a float trip there today with two guest’s so we will know better tonight .
