Miramichi Atlantic Salmon Report


DATE OF THIS REPORT IS: August 21, 2018.

Fishing is spotty at best with very few new fish moving up river.  A few fish did move from the cold water pools over the last couple of days, but those pools which are still closed to fishing hold most of the fish in the lower river system.

WATER LEVELS AND TEMP:  Note Degrees in F = 1.8C + 32

The gauges are both down but based on yesterday’s observation water temps will start the day at about 17C or 63F.

Water height gauge in Blackville is out, but I think it is about 1.1 meters or so.  That is a good height and rain is forecast for tomorrow.  Unfortunately some warm temps are forecast for the weekend but nothing like earlier in the month.


Wets or dries in the 4, 6, 8 range can all work as water is dropping and with cooler nights is quite cool in morning.

I caught a grilse yesterday on a 4 Same Thing Murray.
