I and three of my friends fished Big Hole all last week (7/16-20). We caught 19 fish -- mostly salmon -- but the water was on the low side. I have been fishing Big Hole this time of year since 1984 and have seen the water lower without the pool being closed. On Friday the water temps ranged from 62 degrees F to 68 degrees F. The temps were warmer earlier in the week.

We did foul hook a few fish, but nothing out of the ordinary. The guides were very careful not to let us use heavy hooks in the brook mouth.

Personally, I think its a good sign that the DFO takes aggressive action in protecting the fisheries, but I sure would have been p----d if they had closed it while I was there (LOL).

Miramichi system closure

New update on the miramichi today:

August 3, 2012 - Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) today announces that angling for all species on the Miramichi River system will be prohibited every day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. the next day, starting Sunday August 5, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. This closure is implemented in order to provide relief to the salmon during the current high water temperatures and low water levels that the system is experiencing. This restriction applies to all scheduled (salmon) waters in the Miramichi system including the Crown Reserves.

angling for stressed fish is wrong....and nothing changes that fact!!!!
Nobody should need to catch a fish so bad that the odds are it will die

There are only two options, you can fish above me or B-LOW me!!!!!

+1.

Here on the upper Rogue 'low water' is not our issue, but the water warming up is getting close to the cutting edge. Water coming out of Wm Jess Dam (the bottom of the lake) is still at (+/-) 52 degrees but with a day like yesterday (107 degrees) it doesn't stay that way, that long.

same state

Practising is the right thing! unless you are taking the fish out.

Our warm water fishery in Eastern Ontario is not closed, but the fish are stressed - water is low and hot. Last time on the water, reviving them was hard and it was easy to imagine they would die after release. So, I am practising only.

Additionally, we have had cool nights for the last week. I'm going to the river tomorrow for an evening fish, and I am interested to see what the water temperatures look like
