Good to hear from you . I agree , not that great of fishing with all this high water but sure is helpful for the trout . I had a few really good days on the Cains then the water came up and moved the trout around , great . It seems like there are fewer trout this year but hard to tell really with the high water .
I am considering launching a petition to lobby the government to declare the entire Cains River catch and release until at least July 1st while the migration is on , then maybe allow killing of a few small trout from RT 123 bridge downstream after July 1st . Late May till July is the crucial period for these big trout coming in .
I am not sure about other parts of the Main S.W. Miramichi but for the McNamee area it seems almost impossible to hook into the big Sea-run trout here while they are heading up your way but maybe your headwaters area should be hook & release too until a later date .
Give me a call sometime when you are on your way to your camp , I would like for you to stop in and fish one or two of our pools on your way by .

This is Chris Leger from the Dieppe Fly tying Club emailing a few pics of some “Big Boys” landed in the last couple weeks using a 7 1/2 foot 5 weight rod. Many anglers have had a hard time this year to find these elusive fish this year and for the catch and keepers, I’m very thankfull for that. These fish are a treasure to New-Brunswick’s rivers and streams and should be given the same respect we give to the Atlantic Salmon. These fish were all caught using barbless hooks, all in different pools and released quickly.
