Water levels at Blackville

By Giv'er Miramichi / June 28, 2012 / Comments Off on Water levels at Blackville

The rain that we have received since last weekend has certainly helped the river conditions and should help bring fish in over the next couple of weeks. Personally I would like to see the sun again as would many anglers I am sure.

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 28, 2012

By Giv'er Miramichi / June 28, 2012 / Comments Off on Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 28, 2012

Rain on this past weekend, and more this week, certainly helped river conditions, adding oxygen to the water and raising the levels to spring high, or even higher.  Although a bit too much water for the present, it should be very beneficial for the rivers in the next couple of weeks, and should bring in […]

Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 21, 2012

By Giv'er Miramichi / June 21, 2012 / Comments Off on Miramichi Fishing Report for Thursday, June 21, 2012
