Atlantic Salmon Fishing in Eastern Canada

When most anglers think Atlantic salmon fly-fishing, the Miramichi River is usually the first river to come to mind, and for good reason. The Miramichi’s run comprises over 40% of all the Atlantic salmon returning to spawn in all North America’s rivers. Besides the massive size of the run, the river offers a long season with angling for “spring salmon” or kelts (post spawning fish) from April 15th – May 15th, and bright salmon fishing from June 10th through October 15th.

Conservation efforts over the past 20 years have dramatically improved the returns of Atlantic salmon in Eastern Canada. The Miramichi in particular is sporting salmon numbers reminiscent of “the good old days”. We represent Wilson’s Sporting Camps and Country Haven Lodge, which provide access to some of the best salmon water on Miramichi.
