Miramichi Fishing Report for August 25, 2011

We are into the heart of the Dog Days of August, but fortunately for the fish, most rivers are on the high side giving a buffer to warm days. Cooler nights in the past few days are also keeping conditons very much on the positive side. As soon as the water drops off, probably by the weekend, this is prime Carter’s Bug time. Let’s hope Irene doesn’t drop a flood upon us and ruin the fishing for the better part of a week.

Both Cassilis and Millerton Trapnets reported few fish with both averaging one, maybe two salmon a day and two to three grilse, so there is no fall run to report yet. However, these numbers are about typical for the time of year. Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for August 18, 2011

Generally speaking, angling has slowed in comparison to a few weeks ago. In some places the water needs to drop to fishable levels, and being August, there aren’t many new fish coming into the system, and those that are here are a bit fussy. On the positive side, there are good numbers of fish in the system in most places and water conditions are good at least for the fish.

The counting fences at both Cassilis and Millerton were averaging a couple of fish a day, which is about typical for the time of year. Read more »
