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,
