Atlantic salmon fly fishing conditions for the Miramichi River near McNamee for May 23rd. The water is still higher than normal and we are starting the third week in a row with a cold east wind . We are picking up a few “old trout” but no sign of the fresh sea-run trout yet . I fished Friday May 20th with a friend for twelve hours during a boat tour from McNamee up past Boiestown and back , we landed only two small trout , and they were hooked right in front of the lodge here at the end of the day . SLOWWWW Day ! There are no complaints about the present river conditions though, this is exactly what would like to see going into June , cold high water would be great for the famous “Rocky Brook Run ” !
