Miramichi guide referal

Hi everyone,

My partner and I are going to be spending a couple days in Miramichi, NB in June and I'm hoping somebody might be able to suggest a guide they're had a good experience with in the past. I'm looking for someone oriented towards spey casting and who does not require me tie in lodging.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

Might be worthwhile to contact Dan Bullock at Bullock's lodge (easy to google their website). He's a very good speycaster himself and they have very good pools for a spey rod. Been going there 20 years, the last 5 or so exclusively using spey rods. They normally provide housing, but he has a day rate too, I suspect. They are in Boiestown.

Edit, I just noticed you said you'd be in Miramichi. Boiestown is quite a ways up from that city (which is where the Miramichi enters the bay/estuary. I guess you'll have to decide how far up river you want to drive each day.

Adding to Gary's good advice, I'd suggest touching base with Bryant Freeman at Eskape Anglers in Riverview,NB. He knows every rock and ripple of the Miramichi system, and could, I'm sure, point you to a good guide appropriate to your trip. Additionally, Bryant is the most knowledgable person I know of on the subject of Atlantic Salmon fishing, and a very fine fly tyer. Though I seldom fish in NB, his shop is my favorite in the hemisphere, and I stop nearly every trip I take. Tell him Lefty sent ya!
