The month of May has always been a magical one for me and at times it seems as if there is just too many things to do during this time period. The spring fishery for Atlantic salmon is now over and the first bright fish have started to show up on the NW Miramichi. This spring the fishing was excellent for black salmon with good weather and lots of fish in the the system. There was a good mix of grilse and large salmon and that is encouraging. One prominent outfitter in the Blackville area said it was his most successful season in all his years of operation. That's good news for everyone involved in the sport and recent programs and support from DFO is sure to help improve the numbers of the ''King of Sportfish''. This photo shows me with a nice salmon taken at the springs on the MSW Miramichi.
I was out scouting for bear and brought my fishing rod along to try some culvert fishing for small brookies. We caught a few and took in some nice scenery during our tour. The following photo shows me with a small trout I caught during one of our stops.
