Miramichi Fishing Report for May 17, 2012

By Giv'er Miramichi / May 17, 2012 / Comments Off on Miramichi Fishing Report for May 17, 2012

MIRAMICHI – With the rivers, streams, brooks, ponds and lakes now open, she’s full-tilt once the brights start to enter the system. Already there are reports of a few bright trout on the Northwest and Little Southwest Miramichi Rivers, but generally, angling has reached “in between seasons”.

W. W. Doak and Sons in Doaktown said the water was a bit high and cool, and more rain was expected earlier this week. The river was not quite wade-able, and the pools weren’t identifiable. Angling was generally slow as the spring salmon season was ending and the bright sea trout and salmon had not arrived yet. They felt that realistically, it was still a bit early for bright fish, but they expected sea trout by the end of this week or next. There were also a few fiddleheads being reported, but they should be in full swing next week.
