Miramichi Salmon Association report for June 25th.Hi All
Numbers are still low at the Millerton and Cassilis traps but the gaspereau trap near Chatham we are using to tag salmon for the adult assessment had a great day on Friday with 28 salmon and 42 grilse going through the trap. We are hearing reports of fish throughout the system – as far up as Rocky Brook and Juniper on the Southwest and on the Crown Reserve stretches on the Northwest. While looking for some information I found an old e-mail from Norman Ward of Metepenagiag First Nation where he said the run in 2013 started around June 27th – consisting of mostly large salmon – and I have been told that historically people didn’t fish until the end of June as the run didn’t really start until the first of July – so maybe we are not so late after all.
I am attaching a picture I just received of Tony Brewer with a fish he caught in the Boiestwon/Doaktown yesterday (June 24th) – picture by Brad Toole. Regards, Nola Chiasson
