As already stated,that mid-May to mid-June timeframe is the absolute worst month of the year in terms of salmon numbers in the Miramichi system.The kelts have dropped back and the first bright runs have yet to start,but the NW branch will start getting fish in early June.
The consolation prize however is that same timeframe is prime time for searun brookies up to 7-8lbs if that interests you?It's all about timing with the seatrout though,as they move thru pretty quickly and provide some hot fishing for a week or less on each stretch and you need to chase them upriver and into the smaller tribs to find them into June,but a good guide/outfitter will know the run status and should be able to move you up or down river to find them.
