The Atlantic Canada salmon season ended on October 15th with a solid run of salmon entering the upper reaches of the Main Southwest Miramichi and its tributaries. The fish came in on the back of an enormous raise of water that occurred in the last days of September. Several towns along the Miramichi broke their all-time, single day rain totals. The water along the lower Miramichi rose 6.5 meters flooding the intervales and carrying away boats, stairs, and even bridges. A few days after that the heart of the late fall run entered the river and fish were arriving in headwaters locations.

Some of the seasonís best fishing took place with many large, repeat-spawning henfish available in the mix.

Previous to the raise we had very low water conditions and fussy fish, but the run remained solid all season long.

I was in camp for the last 3 weeks of the season. For a full report on the fishing go to my website blog, scroll down a little and click on Miramichi and Cains River Season Finale.
