Just when you think you have it all figured out Salar puts you back in your place. Even the old timers are scratching their heads on this one.
I went to the Margaree five days after a substantial raise of water in the latter part of September in search of fresh fish. I was sure I had it right. The many fish holding in the lower part of the river moved up stream and no fresh fish moved in from the ocean. The other part of the dilemma is the scarcity of male fish.
I did manage to raise a few fish to white muddlers and GP's(Jerome, I finnaly had a chance to use your fly’s. Had two fish take at the hatchery pool to one of your perfectly tied Generals.)
The Margaree is truly a Great Canadian River. She's up again today and maybe, just maybe, the brighties will decide to run. If you are going this week give the lower river some attention. If your going for the first time hire a guide.
