Fresh silver Atlantic Salmon - Miramichi River, Canada
Fresh silver Atlantic Salmon – Miramichi River

Best Time To Fish Miramichi

The season on the Miramichi runs from 15 April until 15 October.   The early season fishing is predominantly made up with the huge numbers of Salmon making their way back out to sea, with the early runs of silver fish entering the river in earnest from mid May onwards.   The prime months on the Miramichi are over June and July, when the river will be at its peak.  

Lower water conditions in August can result in slower fishing, but the runs of fresh Salmon typically continue into mid September when the conditions will be cooler. From mid September to mid October there is nothing more resplendent than the foliage colours of Eastern Canada, a myriad of reds and yellows making this period a magical time to fish and visit.
