Fishing for Colour on the Miramichi

Fishing on the Miramichi River, New Brunswick  Canada

It’s sure to be a winning combination – salmon fishing in the crisp autumn air against a backdrop of glorious fall colour.

The Miramichi River is one of the world's premier salmon fishing rivers, and with it comes a pristine natural environment that offers the epitome of 'getting away from it all.' Book an adventure with a local outfitter or simply sit back, relax, and take in those awesome views. French Fort Cove Nature Park is known locally for fall colour, so a stroll or bike ride on the multi-use trails, or trying the zipline, is a must.

Of course, it's not all outdoor adventure in Miramichi - the locals know how to have a good time and love welcoming visitors to experience the region. Head to Ritchie Wharf Park for live entertainment and local shops, or plan a visit to Metepenagiag Heritage Park to learn about ancient Mi’kmaq culture. For delicious riverside eats, stop into 1809 Restaurant & Bar at the Rodd Miramichi hotel.
