Atlantic salmon fly-fishing conditions for the Miramichi River at McNamee as of September 12th . The water is holding perfect and there are fish in every holding pool . We are starting to see more big fish in the 20 – 30 pound range but unfortunately they are taking slow . The fish are in the jumping mode , which is not unusual for early September but will soon switch to the taking mode as they begin the fall move in preperation to spawning time ( late October ) . All fish taken this week were on everyones favorite fly , the green machine with white calf tail . If the water stays normal height and clears up a little more we will start using more small black flys again . The long range weather forecast is calling for a little rain and moderate temps so hopefully the river will not get too cold before the big fall fish turn on . Anglers , keep the faith , we always have this little slow period with fish jumping eveywhere but taking slow , then it suddenly turns on .
