Heavy rain hit the river

Colfords Miramichi Fishing Reports for Saturday July 24th. After heavy rains this week we finally got a change in river conditions to help out the fish. The river was 66 degrees this morning and about 2 or 3 feet higher than it was before the rain. Its still a bit dirty but clear enough to fish except they can be anywhere in this high water. Tides for the next few days are as follows.

I fished all morning and saw plenty of fish moving but could not get a one too bite our flies. We were fishing white tail green machines and butterflies. Saw a few anglers fishing and few boat fishing but very few locals fishing so that kinda tells you something! Maybe Sunday will be better with a little more drop in water, we`ll see. Also calling for rain 15-20ml on Sunday which will not hurt the system one bit!

Well got to go get at it again and give you some fish stories for the next report! Catch-ya later and Tight Loops,

Glad the system also got the rain. We were there Wednesday morning(Cains) and the water was very war,. We did see some fiah in one pool but that was it. None of them took anything we fished with.
