Wilson’s Miramichi River fly-fishing report as of May 11th . We had another heavy rain late last week which brought the river up again. We had good fishing for both salmon and local trout on Friday then the high water hit .The high water is great for the soon to arrive “Rocky Brook Salmon” and word is that there are Sea-run brook trout in the lower system now . Some people will be tempted to fish for the trout with a 5 wt., but be aware you don’t want to hook a rocky brook salmon with a trout rod . Even the big sea-run trout can be a challenge on light gear , so stick to a 7 or 8 wt. for the next few weeks . We are still seeing a fair number of spring salmon but tactics will change almost on a daily basis now .
