One or two – your choice – lucky anglers will arrive on the Cains River at Mahoney Brook, 4 miles upriver from Shinnickburn on Saturday afternoon May 23. That evening you’ll be guided on some excellent nearby pools by New Brunswick registered guide Kevin Sabean, host of the Facebrook Group Sabean and Friends on the Trail. Kevin has fished the Cains River for 25 consecutive years, and he knows the river and its fishing extremely well. Kevin will help you plan the right equipment and make the proper fly selections. Note Kevin’s fully packed Chestnut sitting by the shore at Mahoney Brook during a late May float trip a few years back. This trip is timed to provide excellent fishing on the resident Cains River brook trout plus provide a good shot at the larger sea run brookies.
When you’re finished fishing the first evening you’ll enjoy your favorite adult beverages and a steak on the grill from the deck of a private camp overlooking the Cains River – see the attached drone photograph. After a good night’s sleep on a bed in the camp you’ll take off the next morning to fish your way downriver to Shinnickburn. There are many excellent pools in this stretch too including Six Mile, Muzzeroll, Doctor’s Island, Moore’s, and School House Pools. At the end of the day you will take out at the site of the old Cashen’s Cabins in Shinnickburn to head home.
In addition to the fishing you’ll float by some historic Cains River fishing camps, and there is every chance of seeing some great wildlife. Kevin knows every inch of the Cains and is a student of its history. You’ll find Kevin an interesting and knowledgeable tour guide.
All food and beverages are included. Beside clothing and fishing gear the guest anglers should bring sleeping bags for the night at Mahoney Brook camp.
