Hammond River becomes flyfishing only as of July 15th. Palmer Brook (dumping into the Hammond River by Hwy 100) is catch and release only right now, and is later closed to all fishing as of July 1st.

The water is VERY high and dirty this week, with little to no fish being caught. I wouldn't bother coming all the way from Moncton. Give it another week or two and it should get better.
