What type of fishing is there in the northumberland strait??striper fishing is closed in the northumberland strait and all of the east coast of nb. the stripers on this side were the last to come back after the big drop in the 80's. hopefully this may change soon since the natives restocked the st. lawerance and they are expanding back down from the gaspe. the miramiche locals are complaining about them being back in numbers there too but this is a native fish coming back in numbers, not illegal stocking (the st/ lawerance restocking was also legal - feds told them it wouldn't work, then now are argueing over who sets the rules now that it worked...!) it's hard to tell if the miramiche ones were even effected by the restocking, it appears they are simpley coming back themselves. since they lay so many eggs, just a few years of success produces large numbers of fish. oddly, there has been a commercial striper fishery in pei for nb stripers the whole time, and worst, for schoolies, not mature fish. this may have been keeping the miramiche striper numbers down...and giving them access to salmon as a bycatch...!
Best bet is to check the NB Guide to be sure about wat is available and what the seasons are. This is the 2010 guide, but the 2011 will probably be similar when it is released.What type of fishing is there in the northumberland strait??
thanks for all of the replys.salmon, mackeral, trout, flat fish. be careful of the rules for salmon and trout. lots of other species to catch too. for salmon and trout you still will have to follow the nb regs for fish for that area, even though it's salt water. there is a major mackeral run starting about the first of august.
