Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions for the Miramichi River at McNamee for July 4th , 2009 . It has been 20 todays of rain , cloud and cool temps but this picture shows a glimmer of hope that it will soon end . The water is still high and we are seeing just a fish or two on each beat , but we are optimistic that things will improve very soon . We landed two nice grilse yesterday and saw a couple of big salmon in the same pool . Big flys are the choice still and some people are using sink tip lines . The sink tip lines don’t seem to be doing any better than the full floating . I think most will agree that we can’t pass acurate judgement until the water comes down to normal at which time I am certain that the fishing will improve .
