Spring Salmon Blog

By Brad Burns / May 4, 2018 / 0 Comments

Spring has finally come to the Miramichi valley. As those of you living in the Northeast know, it was a crazy winter. We had a snow cover in coastal Maine from virtually the first of December until well into April. They still have it in parts of inland Maine. One true Blackville gray beard told me that it was the most snow he had seen in the woods,

MIRAMICHI – The only remaining salmon rivers open until October 29 are the Bartibog, Tabusintac and Burnt Church Rivers which are all very low water at present.

Here’s the end product of a few of those great fall battles....

CORRECTION: Last week I inadvertently gave out wrong information regarding the daily retention number of stripped bass. I had stated “two” which was wrong. As of September 1 until October 31 the daily retention is ONE FISH ONLY between 50-75 centimeters. NOTE: For the past three weeks, there has been a disruption in this column’s…

MIRAMICHI – Anglers should be aware that starting Tuesday, September 26 the annual NB Moose Hunt begins and lasts until Saturday September 30.
