Variation order partially lifted on the Miramichi...

A bit of good news from DFO - it must mean that things are improving up river... I think i'll wait until next week just the same though...


Moncton – August 23, 2012  - Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) today announces that angling for all species on the Miramichi River system will reopen every day two hours before sunrise until two hours after sunset as prescribed in the Maritimes Provinces Fisheries Regulations, starting Saturday, August 25, 2012.
