Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, May 25, 2017

MIRAMICHI – IT’S THE TURNING OF A PAGE SEASON.  Spring or black salmon are basically finished except for the very odd straggler.  Bright salmon and sea trout are starting into the system, and the numbers of striped bass being caught are gradually increasing as the water warms a bit. The 2017 Miramichi Striper Cup and… Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, May 4, 2017

MIRAMICHI – Fishing this week depended where you were.  From the mouth of the Cains down the water was very high and dirty while above it was fishable and catching was good for spring salmon. Striped bass was sporadic with some places good and others just producing a few here and there. The weekend weather… Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, April 20, 2017

MIRAMICHI – The 2017 angling season for spring salmon and striped bass is underway for the Miramichi system.  However, the weather has not been the most conducive to heading out.  We have been plagued by very cold temperatures and bouts of wet snow which not only have made angling uncomfortable, but has also kept the… Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, April 13, 2017

Welcome to another year of Doug’s Fishing Report.  A new angling season is upon us Saturday, and it looks like we might be able to head out, at least in some sections of the Miramichi system.  With it being the Easter weekend, there could be a few Bunny “Sightings”.  Maybe a streamer with “Rabbit Hair”… Read more »

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, October 20, 2016

I had intended to do an overview of the season this week, but the stats are not posted yet, so I’ll try again next week. However, a general perception is that the Main Southwest Miramichi had the best angling this season.  The Little Southwest was average at best, and the Northwest was poor, certainly in… Read more »
