 Early Fall Run - Sep 08, 2011, 15:26:02 PM #1

We were in camp over the recent holiday weekend and had good, what I call, "pass shooting". For five days we saw a steady stream of salmon of all sizes moving through the water we were fishing in Blackville. Occassionally a fish would take the fly; almost all of these were grilse. If you didn't get them on that first strike they were gone 95% of the time. The water was dropping, but was just too high for real holding. There were as many fish on the move as I can ever recall seeing for such a long period, and several of the ones that we caught had sea lice.
My friend said to me, "I don't know where these fish are going to begin to hold up, but somewhere, someone is having incredible fishing". That's my question, anyone have the answer?

Well, fishing friends, the fall run is now history but in another couple of weeks we'll be on the downward glide into another season. I saw that my earlier post has had 2,500+ views and not one reply. It isn't hard to make a post, give it a try! I spend a little time most days on the Salmon Forum fishing chat room in the UK. You get some good info and it helps to pass the winter. Why not give it a shot here where we have our mutual experiences on the Miramichi to talk about.
I have always believed - without much real conviction, since I am a relative newcomer to salmon fishing - that the fish are programmed to come at certain times, and that a good push earlier in the season does not detract from the later run. I would have to say, though, that the last few falls have challenged that a bit for me. It's not that we haven't had a fall run, thankfully we have, but our summer runs have been unusually strong in recent seasons - which seems odd since the summers have been so warm. These strong summer runs seem to have reduced the fall run. What do others think
