The Miramichi is considered by many to be the mother of all Canadian salmon rivers. The SW and NW Miramichi combined with their famous main branches the Cains, Dungarvon, Renous, Little SW Miramichi and Sevogle have historically been home to roughly as many salmon and grilse as all the rivers of the Gaspe Peninsula combined.
Over the last hundred years nearly every famous Atlantic salmon angler including the likes of Ted Williams, Lee and Joan Wulff, and artist Ogden Pleissner have fished the Miramichi.
Because of its great size and diversity of watershed terrain, the Miramichi offers everything from fast-flowing, hill-country streams, to the late fall runs of the gentle and gravelly Cains. And with many repeat spawners in its population the Miramichi system provides anglers with a chance to hook a real, trophy-sized Atlantic salmon.
