Miramichi Salmon Fishing Off To Hot Start

Miramichi River Reports From Guide Rodney Colford on the Banks of the Famous Miramichi River.

Well anglers are well underway on the Miramichi Salmon Fishing and off to a hot start with huge numbers being hooked and landed up and down the river. What ever method of fly fishing you prefer you are hooking up said guides on the river. If you decide on casting from shore or casting from the boat, long lining or trolling they are taking the fly.

The Miramichi River still has a bit of ice floating and a lot on the shore lines. Water color is a sandy but the fish don't seem to mind taking the fly.With all the ice on the shore line there is some making its way into the water and boaters should be cautious and always on the watch for it while fishing or boating. With such a drop in the water conditions there is room to fish from the shore lines now as well so get out and fish. And if your in the Blackville area don't forget to drop by the Curtis Fly Shop and give your catch report today.

I have this report from Jamie Keenan for the 16th April:

My father Alley and I were on the river late morning till supper. We landed 6 in our boat and lost a few. Other people in the area had their limit in 2 hours. A great day on the river in Keenan's siding. I have been checking with Jamie and they are still catching fish on that part of the river.

Colfords Guiding

The last few days for Colfords Atlantic Salmon Fishing its been great fishing. High numbers of fish being caught. With the barbless hooks makes releasing them so much easier! The numbers are good for salmon and grilse and a lot of fish in the 30 to 36 inch range so far. This is Ronnie Steeves and Shelly Gildert of Moncton area at Colfords guiding. The both ended up catching there limit of 10 fish each.

The water is very low for this time of year and some rain or warm weather would be nice to see.

The weather for the next week looks very good with warm temperatures and rain for Tuesday. Highs of 4C to 13C with 10 to 20mm of rain.

This is a photo of Ron Falusy landing all grilse today for a total of 6 and a trout.Pat Colford and John Cost landed 5 and 2 of them were caught up the Cains at Weasel Brook. Zachery Colford age 11 Landed 2 yesterday both on the Cains, 1 at the mouth and 1 at the School House Pool usung his own fly he tyed. Peter Bersford was out with me on the 16th and he landed 6 fish and I landed 8 and 5 trout of about 10 to 14 inches.

Looking for Reports from Upper to Lower Miramichi River areas!

I am looking for reports from you up and down the river system to help get the word out about the fishing conditions. If you want to post your report just email the details to me at and I will try my best to add them for you for the Miramichi area. Guides, Fisherman, Fisher-Women and Outfitters up and down the river. Outfitters please send a link to your report if you have a web site and I will copy a paragraph and the link to your River Reports.

Fly Shops
Just a suggestion to all fly shops in the areas all over NB to try and have a link for all river reports for fishing in New Brunswick. I know some already have done this but lets keep this information available for all.
