Excellent start of season for the fish, not the fishermen. The water level is high, there are fish everywhere in the system, but the bite is off from the fishing reports I got so far from the salmon bum fraternity (I have only been out once for a few casts...)is there anybody who has been in the Bathurst area fishing
how is the nipisiquite river anything moving
I am heading there this weekend
The basin is choke full of jumping fish just waiting for the right conditions to start a run. We expect 30mm of rain in the next 24hrs, so that's not gonna help the water levels, but might get some fish running up.
By week's end, I plan on wetting a line, some high water pools might be producing fish. You should get into half-decent fishing by that time I have to imagine.
Good luck on the river and hopefully thight lines.
