RE:Upper Merrimac Brood Salmon
Reading these in retrospect, I now realize I need to do BOTH! The Merrimac fishery should be heating up (April) as the water temps hit 40. John Greenwood (director of anadromous program NH) says there are plenty of salmon rolling in the Franklin stretch, but the temps were 34 back at the Wlimington Show (March 11). The great fishing doesn't last long as the water temps exceed comfort levels for salmon in May and June.
The Margaree is on the list for fall trips. I hope I can finally get up to swing a fly with Bob Boudreau this year. I'll be hitting you guys up for more information as the season approaches.
Brian - if you're still going there in mid-summer let me know.
