Wilson’s Miramichi River Spring Fishing Report for May 1st . The water is holding nicely in our area and the weather is superb . You can see here that Sylvain had good luck using a Spey rod while wade fishing along shore . The Spey rod gave him the advantage of reaching well out into the deeper water and after a tip change to get the fly down deep he managed to hook several salmon . The fishing has definitely slowed down but there are still a good number of fish still in our area so the people who can cast well and don’t mind adding a more technical game to their approach will have good fishing for a while yet .
