High water on the Miramichi

High Water On The Miramichi River

I can almost here the engines roaring from the Miramichi river boats as the river is rising and the ice is moving and starting its routine of breaking up. Next thing you will hear is your buddy or sport saying lets try that spot where we got them last year, you no that spot? We all have them lucky spots that we know we will here that reel screech for the first time out fishing. Get ready its almost here!

The Miramichi has been rising over the past few days and with the rise we are seeing some changes with the ice conditions. The river must be up 5 to 6 feet from where it was last week and ice is starting to break up or crack. Looks like we should have a opening day for the 15th of April.
