I live about 15 minutes from the Humber, and for the most part you can experience exceptional fishing from about June 12-oct 15. Only the lower section (below Deer Lake) has a fall fishery (Sept 5-Oct 15), which is catch & release only. But theres much more to the Humber river than Big Falls and spey fishing on the lower humber. There are literally hundreds of fabulous salmon pools on the upper humber. The first pool is in the small community 10 minutes north of Deer Lake. From there on there is easy access to many wonderful pools, wet & dry. Some of the more popular ones can be crowded during peak runs but theres alot of good water which has little to no fishing pressure. Upper sections of the river are much easier to wade and use single handed rods. Last season was a little slow, with a great deal of the season experiencing very high water conditions. High is usually good , but we had about a month where we couldn`t get on the river. But from my experience, its the best river on the island.
