Welcome to Miramichi River Valley

For over a hundred years, the entire system has inspired reverent awe for its tranquil beauty and incredible Atlantic salmon fly-fishing. Famous business tycoons, international politicians, sports and entertainment stars and Prince Charles have all wet lines here. Even Marilyn Monroe is said to have dipped her toes in the water.

The legendary fishery has had some ups and downs with overfishing, poaching and unknown causes (perhaps global warming) affecting stocks, and there is ongoing debate as to the best way of sustaining levels: to introduce stocks or let nature take its course. While sportfishing is on the wane, the area is beautiful all the same.
