The water and weather conditions are perfect this week which helps with the annual migration of the Upper Miramichi River Sea-run brook trout run . Unfortunately this beatiful specimen took the fly down into the gills and was bleeding badly . He was nearly dead by the time I netted it so I took this one home. He will not be cut up and put in a frying pan , he will be proudly displayed on the wall allong side my late fathers trouphy trout caught in 1976 . This is the first big trout I have killed in many years and I hope it will be the last . Please release all of these very special fish , they need all the help we can offer them .
I am running a housekeeping cabin special the next three weeks where you rent the cabin for a discounted price and fish our water for free . Retail on this is $250.00 per day , with a group of four you get it for $50.00 per man . There has been one Rocky Brook salmon caught this week as well .
