Wilson’s Miramichi River report for May 1st. Despite the cold north east wind and rain all week we had great fishing. The water is dropping slightly and is remarkably clear. The fly of choice was a funky looking dark rust colored fly with red/rust crystal flash in it .This looks like the prime weekend for our area of the river and probably good fishing for a couple of more weeks. Blackville is reporting good fishing most of the week too so it looks like the boys down river are in for some great fishing for several more weeks .
