Just got back from the Miramichi this PM. I fished the lower Miramichi for 8 days. The river was on the high side and very cold. The best fishing was in the 4:00 PM to 7:30 PM shift. Not too many salmon coming into to the river. I landed 4 salmon and 4 grilse. My most productive flies were Green Undertaker, Ally's shrimp and Yellow Butterfly. The water is perfect right now and the fishing should be good.

Glad to hear your trip was successful. I know you were looking forward to it. Seems like the productive hours here too are in the mid to late afternoon to evening. Its probably due to the cold nights and water warming up slightly by mid day. Not much action here on the Matane.......but a few fish are caught each day.
Finished the new deck and series of stairs down to the river a few days ago. Gonna get off my butt off the chez lounge now and fish this afternoon. Its been a few weeks.
