Fishing Season/Hunting Season
Spring Salmon: April and May
During this period, a majority of fishing is done from a boat. 8 or 9 weight fly rods with full sinking lines or floating lines with sinking tips are commonly used. Brightly colored streamer flies(for example the Renous Special, Golden Eagle, and Mickey Finn) are usually good choices. The ability to fly cast is not an essential ingredient for successful spring fishing.
Bright Salmon: June – October
During this period, most fishing is done while wading. Traditionally, the most successful anglers have worn chest waders, used an 9 ft or 9.6 ft fly rod with an #8 or #9 weight forward, floating line. The Green Machine, the Black Bear with green butt, the Curry’s Red Shrimp, and the Ingalls’ Butterfly are just a few of the productive wet flies. The Bomber, the Whiskers, and various Wulff patterns are some favorite dry-flies. These flies and many more are tied by the skilled craftsmen of the Miramichi Valley and can be purchased at the Lodge. Recently, the Switch rod and the Spey rod have gained in popularity. They have a distinct distance advantage in windy conditions with high water.
The Cains River is on the flyway for woodcock and provides the potential for spectacular shooting. Partridge hunting is unpredictable and varies from year to year. Recently there have been more moose than deer in this area, but who knows what this year will bring. The winter was unusually mild and deer survival should have been up.
Waterfront Description & Nearby Activities
The Cains River is at the foot of the ridge. This river has superior brook trout fishing during the early summer and excellent Atlantic salmon fishing in late September and October. A canoe trip down the Cains is one you will never forget. The scenery, the wildlife are breathtaking. A Canoe and kayak are provided for your use.
Most of the Cains River is publicly owned. A trip down the Cains River to the Main Southwest Miramichi is an all day adventure.
