Hey everyone,
I'm headed up to the Dungarvon river the weekend of June 26th. If anyone's been there this year and could post an update as to water levels, fish sightings and if hooked then on what, that would be awesome.
Thanks

My step dad tried there the other day, bugs were too bad and said he had to leave after 30-40 minutes without even a bite.

Fished the Dungarvon yesterday, water was very low but fishable. No sign of any fish.
Good thing is as we were leaving, a thunder storm started with fairly heavy rain to Doaktown.
Thanks, the forecast isn't calling for a lot of rain in the next 10 days, so hopefully it was a big down-pour. In a way, I'm selfishly hoping that I don't hear about a big run of brights until the night before I leave!
What parts of that river do you guys usually fish? I basically try and cover as many pools as I can driving 15 to 20 minutes up/downstream from Furlong Bridge. I don't know the names of many pools along there, but my favs are the pool right at the bridge and one further upstream that we just always called the ledge pool (rock ledge on other side of river). The only way I know how to get there is to go past the bridge, veer left at some point, drive for a bit and when power lines cross the road, turn around and it's your next right.

How far the Dungarvon river is from the big Quarryville bridge?

I never fished the Dungarvon but hooked a salmon on the MSW Saturday upstream from Doaktown, and caught a whack of trout, water seemed pretty low but not terrible, i would suspect if we get some rain the brights should be in the Dungarvon soon

It's approximately 10 miles from Quarryville to get to Blackville, where the turnoff I use is. If coming from Quarryville, you'd be taking a right just before the bridge in Blackville and just after a fly shop (Curtis', I think ?).
Then another 10 miles from the turnoff to the Furlong Bridge.

If ya don't mind me asking, where'd you hook that fish?

I fished the Dungarvan on Tuesday from 4Km above the Furlong bridge down to it. I found many nice runs/pools but no salmon to be seen. Water is very low. Caught a few trout.The Dungarvan has to to the nicest little river of the Miramichi system.

Thanks for the update Bones, and I'd have to agree --it's a beautiful stretch....

So? Someone must have been up there this past weekend......
A friend of mine reported to me that a salmon was caught this past weekend at the bridge pool just near the campground... that is a heck of a ways up that system... Bamford area...

Thanks Paul. I'm not familiar with that area, but is it just south of Kennedy Lakes?
Anyway, I'm headed up to camp for a few days at the Furlong bridge tomorrow. At least I know I didn't just miss a big run!
I'm pretty excited. I've never landed a Salmon or Grilse other than the one my dad hooked and let me play when I was 12.
I'm thinking mostly white tailed Green Machines, but I also have some Shady Ladys, Smurfs? (blue deer hair bug...dont' know if that's what they're called), Blue Charms, Undertakers, all of 'em sizes 6 and 8. Oh, and I got a few big Bombers.......I've been told that the white tailed Green Machines are really all I need, but any last minute advice is welcome.
