Huge Atlantic Salmon on the Cain's River

Fly fishing report for the Miramichi & Cain’s River by Guide Rodney Colford.

Fishing on the Cain's River again this morning and had very good results. Ron Falausy of Pennsylvania landed a grilse covered in sea lice, then tightened on another that looked to be a grilse and then he hooked this whale of a salmon 46 inches long! I estimated it to be around 35lb’s. It was a huge female salmon. We have pictures of the salmon and I will post them in the next day or so.

Bill Moore hooked a grilse this morning as well about at noon.
Guide Gary Colford and sport Jim Messel landed a salmon on a lT Special.
Flies this morning were GP’S and LT Special‘s. A lot of fish were showing this morning on the Cain’s River. The water temperature was 49 F and it was a very sunny morning. The barometric pressure was rising all morning as well.

I checked a few pools on the lower stretches of the main Miramichi and it looked very fishable! We also saw some in the pools we were at. I hope they take tonight?

Tight Lines,
