Hello everyone.

I am thinking of heading over to the Bartibog tomorrow morning for some trout fishing and I have a few questions?

From the No.8 highway and east is it possible to wade along the river?
Or is it better to go west of the highway?

All I have is some chest waders and my Civic isn't quite made for off roading to get to the middle part. I drove the Russleville Rd. twice but I don't think there is any place I can drive through to get to the river.

Is the Keenah Rd. a good way to gain access to the river or is the best access at the highway?

Also are you allowed to walk across the Fin and Feather property to gain access to river?

Thanks guys

Here are some helpful tips:

There is a pool where the No 8 hwy goes over the Bartibog just before Kenna Road. Its a good salmon pool in the fall.

Don't go back Kenna road, as most of the land is private and he pools are extremely hard to get to if you don't know where your going.

Take a drive back the Fraser road which is about 2-3 KM past Kenna on the left. It's well graded so you can easily take your civic back. There are a couple pools inbetween Baileys Bridge and the hwy. I will let you find them for yourself.

A good trout spot on the way to the Big Bog is on the Oldfield road (formerly the old bathurst Hwy) about 6- km back. It't the little Bartibog river. Just below the bridge is a nice pool on a bend. It's fished hard, so you might have to be there early.

Fins and Feathers was okay to walk across the last time I as by in the late spring.

Man I am in Saint John and wishing I was home fishing on the Bartibog rivers. I hope you have a blast! Let me know how you make out.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks Fletch B for the great info.

I was there today but there was alot of rain last night and the river looked like it was hot chocolate and the water was pretty high. Will wait and try again on the weekend.

Thanks again for the info. I will be taking my camera along for the trip and if i land any trout I will post them.

Thanks

I'll be on the lookout for your civic, should be on the river bright and early Saturday AM. Hope we don't get too much thunderstorm activity this evening, this would ruin weekend fishing on this river...way too much sand silt.

Good luck, there are fish everywhere in the system, I've caught'em high and low...no monsters yet for me though...


Thight lines,

I'll try to be there tomorrow.Was there today but it was pretty warm. Was at the bridge on the highway. Yas using a yellow stimulator and had quite a few small guys take a look and from the flash I saw at least one decent trout but no takers.

Hope we don't get too much rain tonight.

Tight lines

Gdog,

The Bartibog is not fly only. It't not a scheduled river. You can fish bait on the Bartibog until the end of trout season in September.
