Please check out my three youtube videos showing the Cains River Crown Reserve Road devastation . It is not my intention to beat up on the forest industry in general . I have many friends and even family members who depend on these jobs and the way I see it with the obvious display of greed and disregard for the environment and unique situation such as this Crown Reserve road issue , I feel that my friends jobs are actually at risk if these practices continue .

Wilson’s Miramichi River Report July 8th

Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions for Wilson’s in the McNamee as of July 8th . The sun has finally came through . The water is still app. 8 inches above normal but clear and cold . Temps are running around 61F this morning . The weather forecast is for sun and moderate temps till Sunday so as the water drops things should improve . Up till now we have had very slow fishing , just last night we began seing more fish and landed a couple of grilse . Wilson’s guests are fortunate to have several high water pools spread out over a mile area and we fish a small crowd , so if there are any fish going we get you over them . We are using #4 and 6 size wet flys but still on floating lines . Who would ever guess , both grilse yesterday were hooked on a green machine with white calf tail .
