Atlantic Salmon takes on the Cain's

The Miramichi River Report for the 6th of Oct. It was a cool day on the river with sunny periods for the most part. The air temperature is 9 C. The water temperature is 47 F. There is a high tide tonight at 11:13 PM and is 1.35 meters high. The water was very clear today but with the normal dark color it looks dirty if you do not look closely.

Now for the fishing today! The Cain’s was fishing very well today at Moore’s Pool for the Colford’s with 6 fish hooked and 5 landed by noon. Then I hooked another at 3:30 on a undertaker #8 double. It was around 7 lbs male. We saw several fish jumping today so maybe they are starting to move up river a bit. The water was down by another foot on the Cain’s but is still very high for most pools in the lower stretches of the river. The Miramichi dropped a foot or so as well but I have no reports from the river as how the fishing was today. Then just before dark this evening Guide Gary Colford landed a 25 pound salmon in the middle of the Moore's Pool.

For guide Rodney Colford tight lines for today.
