Best Trout and Salmon Fishing in New Brunswick


(gentle music) – The thing I like the most is that most of our staff, whether it’s a guy doing layout in a cut block or whether it’s a contractor, those guys are the same guys who are usually out on their time off on the weekend fishing and hunting. And they care. They really care about what happens on the landscape. When I go and talk to a fish and wildlife group and I say, where would you like to go fishing in the province? They all say, “Oh, the headwaters of the Miramichi,” which is our Deersdale district. And that is a place where the best salmon trout populations and best habitat in the province are, and we’ve been working that district intensively for 60 years. There was a study being done on the upper stretches of the Miramichi River on water quality. So, we jumped at the chance to just see what the water quality was running out of five major watersheds in the headwaters of the Miramichi. And basically what they came back and told us was that the water could be classified as pristine. That’s just amazing water quality. And if you think of those watersheds as sort of the veins in your body, that’s what’s draining that landscape. So any issues with forestry management would show up in the water quality, and that’s not what we found. We found great water quality. So, good forest practices, good forest management goes hand in hand with really great water quality and fish habitat.
