Q - When is the best time to come fishing?

A - This is a very common question asked, yet difficult answer. Scientists say that Atlantic Salmon are non feeding fish once in fresh water . Therefore we are not trying to figure out feeding habits. Water temperature, barometric pressure, river levels all play a role in how well salmon "take the fly".

Q - How do I know which fly to use?

A - This will depend on water levels, clarity and a variety of factors. Your Guide will assist you with fly selection based on their expertise and experience. General rules of thumb to remember are: faster moving or deep water - use larger flies . Conversely lower or slower moving water - smaller flies . The colors - black and green are magic on the Miramichi, never a bad choice. Fall (September on) - orange, gold, reds are a smart choice often in streamers.

Q - Are the bugs bad?

A - May through mid July is considered worst. After that much more moderate. A "bug jacket" is advisable if you have one, and of course fly repellent is a good idea to bring along.

Q - How long do we spend on the river?

A - On average about 8 hours a day. This is typically split between morning and evening sessions. These are considered to be the most productive times to fish for salmon.

Q - Why do salmon jump?

A - This is an age old question that there are many answers - non of which we know for sure are accurate. For fun ask your Guide!
