I was wondering if Ritchie wharf was open, or if anyone was on the river with boats yet.
Open boat launches on Miramichi?

We went out yesterday 4 boats in total water is extremely high and fast and dirty almost un-fisheable. Did not see any fish.

The striper fishing in Miramichi picked up this afternoon and this eve during outgoing tide to low tide That with the warm temps turned the bite on. From what I’ve heard quite a few fish were caught this afternoon/eve in the loggieville area and Chatham. Fish were also caught in Chatham head by the Morrisey bridge. Usually stripers bite much better in low light to no light conditions such as late afternoon, eve and after dark because they are light sensitive which in turn affects when they feed the heaviest For about the first two weeks after the ice runs the water in the river is stained enough that you can catch stripers pretty well all day even when it’s bright and sunny with no cloud cover. This can even happen toward the end of May and in June when the water levels are usually getting low and really clear but then we get really heavy rains causing the river level to rise two feet or more and becomes brown and dirty When this happens get out on the water as soon as rhe river level begins to drop as there is always GREAT fishing to be had. Over the past few years some of my best fishing has taken place after periods heavy rain and high water. Often very few fisherman are out on the river fishing during periods of high dirty water that is beginning to drop because most fisherman dont think that it’s worh it to even bother going out-they couldn’t be more wrong!!!
