Jim Messel landed a salmon and rolled a couple more. Christian Staffas landed a grilse on a LT special on the Cain's as well. Guide Rodney Colford sports landed a 8 lb salmon on the Cain's and lost another using a GP #2 single. This evening sport Bill Moore lost a huge salmon 20 pounds or more and still growing!! Ha! He was using a GP again. Guide Gary Colfords sports Christian Staffas landed a grilse & salmon on the Cain's this evening again using the LT special. Jim Messel rolled one twice but could not get it to take.
The water temperature on the Cain's River was 45 F this morning and still only 47 F tonight. The water was clear today but very black in color. The water level is very good on the Cain's and there are fish showing in most pools up and down the river. The barometric pressure was dropping all day and stayed damp on the Miramichi area. Reports for the main SW Miramichi River are still slow in most of our pools with very few fish being hooked or seen. maybe tomorrow with a little more drop in water over night?
Tight Lines for today,
Guide Rodney Colford
