It appears that all Atlantic salmon destined for our north American rivers are late this year . Our contacts from other rivers are reporting much the same news as the Miramichi . The “down river” reports continue to improve each day so early to mid July looks good . And , with the cool temps and perfect water conditions at present the fish will be more than happy to move along once they do get here . Bottom line , still slow fishing but we are all optimistic that things are going to improve very soon .
