First day of the season on the Hammond and so much for sea run trout. Saw a few hundred gaspereau moving up the river today. Time to move onto streams and brooks for now.
Heard of some people hooking into some nice salmon near the angling association as well as some smallmouth bass being caught.
Cheers.

We were on the Hammond as well, but way up river. We didn't get a single trout, but heard they were getting them by the train bridge. I got two salmon grils way up there. We were surprised to see them that far up river this time of year (they were slinks). The main reason we were up river was to avoid the salmon in the first place. We were fly fishing, so they were both quckly and safely released with no injury at all.

What were you using when catching salmon?
I was nymphing all morning between first bend past angling association and deep hole and only snagged a bass.

Stroover, how far up the hammond were you?

We were around Upham. I used muddler minnows, woolybuggers, and nymphs and didn't get a thing. I switched to a buck bug I tie (my killer trout fly) and got those two grilse.

you are not allowed to target the salmon on the hammond, they have to be immediately released, so keep that in mind. it becomes fly fishing only in july but is open to all gear right now.

the trout were hitting spinner and worm and small bomber flies and even one was caught on a dark streamer. i saw a number of may flies on ther water, so they should work too. not many trout caught today there, but lots of black were c&r and the yellow perch were biting as soon as the sun started to go down. hopefully the trout bite will get better soon. i didn`t see any gaspereaux.

for places to fish there, basicly anywhere from the green train bridge up to a mile above the fishing association lodge (past crowleys pool) seemed to be the places the fish were being caught, but that is sort of like saying they were in the water - it`s still too early to tell where the real hot spots are. i was talking to some one for every hit and fish i landed today except one, so look for some people fishing and say hello.

only trout we got on the hammond was down past the train bridge, just past the fork. caught on a little f-5 brown trout rapala. other then that nothing on the hammond. later that day went and hiked some brooks,about half a dozen resident brookies but nothing over 8-9 inches. only nice sized trout i heard of were up by the upham area.

If you say trout are not out of the Hammond yet i'll give it another try on Friday. Most likely still in the upper part of the river. I don't know how fast gaspereau migrate, but hopefully not that fast.

I saw the gaspereau in the straight stretch between deep hole and angling association. I was walking on the elevated bank an there was a huge school just below me. I wish they were trout!!

Still too early for sea trout isnt it? Ive only ever caught 1 down by salt springs 2 years ago, no luck any other time.
