The Strawberry Run of grilse and young salmon on the Little Southwest Miramichi river was late by a week this July, but they've finally arrived. Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans trap nets have had good counts of returning fish this week as opposed to the previous two weeks and anglers are reporting lots of hook-ups the past few days. Tight lines - SG.

Not so on the Matane! As of July 15 the numbers of returned salmon are half of that of last year same time. Last year right now there were 1150 salmon counted and today there is approx. 550. The locals are blaming the low hot water. I hope they are right.
