Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions and report for the Miramichi River at McNamee on May 18th. The river is finally down to a normal level . We have excellent water and the temps and still cool . The resident trout numbers appear to be up again this year and as the water warms up further the trout will be feeding better . The Sea-run brook trout on the Cains and the upper Miramichi last year were in record numbers so we are very excited about getting back into these trophy fish here in a few weeks . The ever elusive Rocky Brook Atlantic salmon run will begin to show up soon as well . This run is tough to catch but without a doubt these salmon are the best of the best . An evening on the Miramichi in late May and early June is like a piece of heaven , ones expectations are not that great for a ton of salmon hook ups but brook trout are plentyful and the river is so peaceful and fresh with all the new tree growth and new wildlife being born .
