Which trout fly are you suggesting for the Cocagne/Notre dame river (near the Notre-Dame bridge) ? I've been using a bunch of them so far this year and last year and no luck. I've noticed a few fly fisherman down there, but nobody seems to have any luck...

I was there fly fishing on Sunday morning and caught 1 small brookie on the small tributary where it branches out farther up from the big culverts. I have taken nothing big so far this year but last year I have seen some biggies come out of this river on small orange coloured bugs that a friend had tied (made up) in random patterns but all orangish in colour. Hope this helps.

Nice little bug.. never seen it before.. where can I get some Stroover ??
There used to be a fella in Moncton who tied them, but he passed away a few years ago. I tie them myself, now.
It's basically tied on a #8, the tail is black deer hair and a few strands of crystal flash, and the body is deer hair (natural, red, natural). Fish it wet.

I see, I don't tied fly so I'll check around the area if someone can do it for me, thanks for the pattern

This river... *sigh*
It's so frusterating... I never catch anything large by any means however people are always pulling big fish out of this river...

I was thinking of going there today after work butttt the last time I was there the gaspereaux were clowning around and from experience the trout don't seem to be as active when the gaspereaux are running around... Might be time to start heading up the miramichi!
:D:D:D:D

I find that the Brown bug works well here as well as mosquito type flies. Most small flies work well for the trout there but if your after the big baddies you need to use something wet and larger..

I never have much success there either but like you I have seen some monster trout come out of there in recent years usually held up for a picture by grinning friends. :-(

Have the sea trout started running there yet anyone know?

Darn. Now I can't sleep in on Saturday morning in case I miss the little buggers swimming by. Oh well........I can sleep in next Sept I guess. Gotta get me a sea trout so that my wife can see that I actually know how to catch "something" LOL. Thanks for the tip.

same here...

however I've been there almost every night since last week and fly fishing isn't really good though, not sure which flies they want but they're fuckin "peeky" hehehe .... I've been trying dry/wet flies... you named.... but night crawler seems to works pretty good, if you know where to go

I was fishing one of the tributaries this week and saw an actively feeding trout. It only raised for light colored mayfly patterns (light cahill and several adams patterns). I did see a few light colored mayflays buzzing around the river. It seemed to be feeding just below the surface so I threw on a pheasant tail nymph and thats what brought it in. I never got to try any other nymphs but that one worked well.

The pheasant tail nymph... is it the one with the bead head (gold head) you mean? Or more something like this one http://www.graysofkilsyth.com/Trout-Nymphs-Pheasant-Tail-Nymph.jpg
