Fishing in the Bartholomew und Miramichi River

The Miramichi is the eldorado for fly casters from around the globe.
This is one of the world's preferred river systems where the mighty Atlantic salmon returns in good numbers to renew his wedding vows.
Commercial salmon fishing is definitely a thing of the past along the Eastern seaboard. The salmo salar, nowadays well protected, can henceforth only be pursued by sport-fishermen with fly rod and artificial fly.

The season begins in mid-April and lasts through Indian summer, to the end of October. The main runs are at the end of June/mid-July and again from mid-September through the golden month of October.
Highlight of any fisher(wo)men's life: (S)he who has drilled a wild Atlantic salmon will not forget the ensuing surge of adrenalin.

The Miramichi, depending on the season, offers excellent sport for sea-running brook trout, shad and even stripers.
In early spring, schools of smelt enter the river in great numbers.
