Fishing report for the Main South West Miramichi River and Tributaries by Rodney Colford. With the season winding down for the Atlantic salmon season on the Miramichi there are great signs of fish still in the system. Last night a rookie to Atlantic salmon fishing Christiana 28 from NY landed a 18 to 20lb female salmon on a LT Special. It took her almost 35 minutes to land this fish in the fast water. She was using my 15 foot Loop Classic Spey Rod and a Snow Bee line, it really helped her to get a few extra feet in her cast with the wind and get that great salmon on the fly. I have it all on video and pictures of the fish jumping until the time it was netted. This morning on the same pool we had two takes but either stayed on. Also on the Cain’s River this morning Guide Gary Colford sports lost 2 salmon at Moore’s pool.
This report from a friend of mine that fished the Cain’s a couple nights ago, Jay Earle.
I fished the Cain’s up above the 123 bridge yesterday evening.
According to the local guys there were a number of fish hooked in the morning and afternoon
I hooked and lost two while my buddy hooked and landed a grilse.
The fish were taking small dark flies, right at dusk.
Headed home in the dark.
