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

MIRAMICHI – A decent splash of water really improved fishing on the weekend, but much more rain is still needed. Striped bass angling should improve as the fish are back in the city area.

MIRAMICHI – As we move into September, we are looking for a good Fall run. The only stumbling block is the lack of rain. We did get some this week, with more in the forecast. If we get the amounts predicted, it should spur the fishing, as water temperatures are good. COMMENTARY: The Coalition for…

MIRAMICHI – Water temperatures have improved this week, resulting in a few more fish being in the taking mode. However, we still have had no significant rain to improve the water levels. Having said that, I’m sure Houston would gladly share if they could. Our sympathies go out to them in this time of crisis.…

MIRAMICHI – With the cold-water pool closures now lifted, and very few anglers on the rivers, I will do a summary report this week. Fortunately, temperatures both during the day and night have been cooler. However, the rivers remain low, and we need a good day’s rain to really improve things. On the positive side,…

Ledges guide Kyle Price with Grilse caught this week by Ledges guest

MIRAMICHI – Once again this week, there is a slight improvement in the number of fish coming into the system, but still no great run. However, if slow and steady wins the race, we’ll take it. One concern is the striped bass which are spreading further and further up the river systems than ever before…
