Leapers on South West Miramichi River

Salmon on the Miramichi the last few days have been showing more and more! I raised a salmon tonight 4 times on a brown bomber with white ends and once on a green machine white tail number 8 double. My son and I both landed a trout around a pound on dry flies. I saw a few more jumping below us so the runs are coming in.

Danny Stewart hooked one Saturday morning at Nash Bar on a number 4 Cossaboom. Joel Kitchen hooked a salmon at Hogans Pool Sunday morning. And my father said Dave Ranslow of Maine hooked 2 at the Hogan bar. Not sure on the fly patterns they were using.

As for those interested in Shad fishing, they are also here in big numbers! I will keep you posted on our shad fishing over the next couple weeks.

The water temperature is 59F and the barometric pressure is rising and was at 1010 tonight. For tide info please check the links on the side bar of my blog and it will open to the Miramichi Tides.

I also have several spots left for guided fishing this summer and fall so check out my prices on my web site for more information on packages.

Tight Lines,
