I drove past a river on my way to Chester a couple weeks ago and would like to learn about it. It cuts across the 103 at km marker 265. Runs from Snake Lake to River Lake and eventualy dumps into St.Margrets Bay. It looked so fishy from the highway that my fly rod started to shake.
Can anyone tell me it's name? Possibly The Ingram River? When and if there are runs of sea or browns?Local populations of brookies?
On Google Earth I see a dirt road just to the west that runs north to another section of the river that looks great. Is this road passable? Also any info on the Gold river to the west. Accessability,good locations?
Thanks,
Fish on!!

Shhhhh... Best kept secret... If it's the river just before hubbards I think that river is closed for the year. It is a nice river.

From the guide:

"Ingram River, from a point 23 m downstream from the Highway 3 bridge
to a point 23 m upstream from that bridge,including tributaries. CLOSED ALL YEAR"

That means up around the 103, it's okay, right? Just a small section closed?
I'm not being sarcastic, I'm having a hard time de-ciphering it today and if I go up to play, I don't wanna get in trouble :)

Hey guys, I live a stones throw from the ingramport Rails to Trails bridge that passes over this river, surprisingly, I have just started fishing this river last year. My understanfding is that anything from the Rails to Trails bridge up is fair game as the regulations state 23m from the Highway 3 Bridge (St. Margarets Bay Road)

No doubt this is my preffered place to fish as I can fish it any time I like living so close. A couple questions I have regarding the lower river,

Sea Trout Run? All I hear when bumping into guys is this famous Sea Trout Run. My memory lasts no more than 5 minutes so I always forget what they tell me. When is this? I am assuming late July?

Steelhead? In this river? Really? Rumor maybe?

If anyone wants a fishing buddy here on the fly, ring in! I can provide parking if you provide the spots and insight!

some native trout in there and a strawberry run of specks, that river is hit pretty hard all year ,its a nice wading river when the water is low and usually a few fish right after and during a good rain also watch for stone fly hatches and the may fly
hope this helps

cheers and tight lines

Usually people are fishing this stream like crazy all summer. I found a few years ago it was fairly decent fishing but it is fished so heavy I found the past couple years have been pretty slim pickings. There are logging roads that run right through there -- they are passable in a truck if the gate is open but thats 50/50. Like most spots that are accessible by road though the trout population is under pressure but there are a few there. Hope that helped.

Yea chase I was out there on Wednesday and fished the entire river from Snake Lake to the bridge. I only got one small trout and that was the only bit the whole day. The water is still pretty high yet, may be a bit better when the levels drop.

i grew up and learned how to fly fish on the ingram. last time i fished it was 4 years ago and the fishing wasnt good at all. i was surprised at catching a few parr which means there is still somewhat of a run in the river. useto be a GREAT river with a decent run of salmon and sea trout as well as large resident trout. im also sure the netting done by a certain imbred backwoods character didnt help it any. can still remember my first ever salmon caught on a mickey finn i tied at river lake 20 years ago.

I have fished this river quite a few times.10 years ago I would catch 3-4 fish in the 10-11' range not far off the highway, last couple years I was lucky to get a nibble and they seem to be getting smaller. There seems to be more and more people fishing it over the past 5 years, almost always someone parked there fishing. Just my experience but haven't bothered stopping there this year.

This is sad hearing about the overfishing and numbers. I am a catch and release fisherman only! I buy my fish from thoes who do it for a living. I assume this river needs to be catch and release only.

Unfortunately like most of us know, if it's easy to get there it's going to be fished often.

The one time I was there, which was probably a month ago I only caught a tiny brook trout. Every time I go by there on weekends or evenings there's always a few cars parked on the side of the highway.
