I haven't seen any salmon fishing discussion on here this year yet. Anybody been out for the summer run yet?
I made it out to Margaree 4 times so far this summer, twice this Spring and each time I spent about 4-5 hours on the river without seeing any fish. Been hearing of a few odd ones here and there but nothing steady. Seems like we need a steady downpour of rain for a few days to bring the water table up.
i have also been reading some reports of extremely low salmon numbers this year, which is a little unsettling.

However some people have been saying that the issue is that the run is just starting late, and people over in Newfoundland have been agreeing as well.
What is everyones opinion on the best time of season for salmon fishing? July, August, September, October?
Does anyone know how the North River (CB) summer runs are?
