August 2012

Now into the middle of August and the weather over the last couple of months has resulted in the opposite of what we normally expect this time of year.  Usually we are praying for rain to lift the low river levels.  This year the rivers are full or overfull and coloured.

Get there at the right time and you could be into fish, salmon and sea trout are distributed throught the system now.  A few hours can make all the difference, good conditions in the morning and a coloured and rising river in the afternoon.  Weather forecasts and a lot of luck prevail.

Even the stillwaters are variable.  Some fishing well but others more difficult.  There are good numbers of bass around and when weather conditions co-incide with favourable tides the fishing is good.

Our trip to New Brunswick to fish the Miramichi for Atlantic salmon is full this year but we will be running our week again next year at the end of September.  I will be updating my website to include this year's report so if you are interested in the 2013 trip get in touch.
