Cold Water Pools Opened as of Tuesday August 16th

DFO has informed us that as of Tuesday, August 16th, 25 cold water pools will be reopened to fishing on the Miramichi River system (3 pools remain closed as per normal schedule). A variation order was just issued today to this effect , and a notice to anglers will be published shortly on the regional DFO Web Site  (under the ‘salmon’ headline). These reopenings are triggered under the warm water protocol in place on this system, as in date of this Monday, we had two consecutive nights that the water temperature in the Main Southwest Miramichi stayed below 20C, we received some good rain and our staff on the field observed salmon moving out of cold water pools.
