Hi Every One,

I went to the Margaree River fishing from October 11 to the 16 with a friend Allan MacDonald (His first trip). The water was the highest I've ever seen the river in about 15 years of fishing it. On Tuesday the 11 we couldn't even get near the river. On the 12th we went to the upper part of the river where the water was a little less and I was able to hook into a nice fish around 10 Lbs but lost it on the first jump. On the 13th Allan MacDonald had hooked into a nice fish at Cranton Bridge, we figured it to be about 20+ Lbs. He had in on for about 15 minutes before he was broke off. On the 14th Allan MacDonald hooked a nice grilse at Lower Tompkins. On the 15th we boyh landed fish, mine were around 10 Lbs and 12 Lbs and Allan MacDonald landed a big female 41" long. This is the first time I've tried to attach any pictures so here it goes.
