Miramichi Fishing Report for August 18, 2011

By Giv'er Miramichi / August 18, 2011 / Comments Off on 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.

Generally, there are still good numbers of fish within the system, but some not fresh. Water height and temperature are staying on the positive side. You may have to work a little harder, but putting time in has a reasonable success rate.

The Millerton Trapnet was averaging 5 to 6 grilse a day along with about 10 salmon. The Cassilis Trapnet was picking up 1 or 2 grilse a day and maybe 3 salmon. The counts were down from earlier weeks, but about normal for the time of year.

Miramichi Fishing Report for August 4, 2011

By Giv'er Miramichi / August 4, 2011 / 0 Comments

As we enter the month of August, we can normally anticipate a bit of a slow season, but this summer so far is an exception. Water levels and angling continue to be good in most places for the time of year, which is gravy for the exceptional season we’ve had so far.

With the arrival of August, the stretch of the Northwest Miramichi from the Mouth of Little River down to Wayerton Bridge is now open for the retention of grilse. All other “Hook ‘n Release” regulations remain as they were.

After a day or two of no fish, Cassilis Trapnet had seven salmon and 14 grilse on Tuesday. Millerton had slightly higher numbers.

Honourable Keith Ashfield, the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans for Canada, will be visiting various spots around the province this coming week.

As we prepare to move into August, angling continues to be on the positive side. We’ve had tremendous runs of both grilse and salmon, water levels and temperatures have been very positive for the most part, and there are still decent numbers of fresh fish entering the system daily. The Cassilis counting fence on the…

There are both good and bad to report this week. First the good. There are still good numbers of fish in the system, and the trapnets are putting through an average of 25 grilse and four salmon a day, which is certainly down from the exceptional runs of the previous week, but about normal for the time of year.

Angling continues to be extremely positive with excellent numbers of fish in the system, the like not seen in years. High water and some warm days caused a slight slowing, but the over all picture remains great. Attesting to this are reports that the Trapnet at Cassilis on the Northwest was getting a steady average…
