It’s no secret that the Miramichi is one of the best salmon-fishing rivers in the world. Come stay at one our many fishing resorts and experience the zen of casting your fly while the river flows slowly past; and the thrill of reeling in the legendary Atlantic salmon. From your first step into the salmon pool until the last bite of dinner, fly fishing on the Miramichi is truly an experience you’ll never forget.
The 2019 season commences on April 15, find information on the 2019 salmon fishery guidelines here.

- The recreational striped bass fishery season will begin on April 15, 2019; once information becomes available, more information on retention can be found here.
- For both the retention and the catch and release fisheries, it is mandatory to use single non-offset barbless hooks (when using bait) throughout the Southern Gulf of St. Lawrence.
- This type of hook decreases the chances of mortality when a fish is returned to the water, especially important during catch and release periods.
