Miramichi Fishing Report

I fished the Miramichi above Boisetown from July 13th through 16th. Water was a perfect height and temperature good, and very clear. The fishing -- as always -- was excellent, but the catching was not.

We arrived at 4pm on Wednesday, July 13th, and started fishing at about 6pm -- the perfect time for the evening fishing to begin. At about 7pm, I hooked what felt like a nice fish, but it got off before I could see it. That was the only fish I hooked. My fishing companion hooked one on Friday, but that was it for both of us. A third fellow who was fishing the same pool as we were hooked a 5 lb. grilse that jumped about 7 times before throwing the hook.

We did go down to the pool that I like to fish -- Big Hole -- but the daily fee has been increased from $450US to $600US for four rods. We sat around jawing with the guides at the pool for about an hour and saw about a fish every 90 seconds either jump, porpoise, or rise. They estimated the pool was holding about 1500 fish at the time. Fishing that pool will takle some planning, but I think we will do it next season.

We spent most of the mid-day scouting other public water, but found nothing too promising. The water we fished was farther up-river than I normally fish, but it looked good. I am told it is better in autumn.

Sad as it is, that's the report.
