RE:Upper Merrimac Brood Salmon
If you want good Atlantic Salmon action close to Mass try Nova Scotia. A high speed ferry ride out of Portland is all it'll take. Lodging's cheap, trout fishing is outstanding, and if the water is high, the Salmon fishing is good too. Fish the Medway and LeHave rivers. About 1 1/2 hrs from Yarmouth NS which is the ferry destination.
