CAMP STANTON GIVES YOU UNPARALLELED ACCESS
TO THE BEST OF THE MIRAMICHI
CAMP STANTON is dedicated to bringing you the best the Miramichi River has to offer. We focus our time, effort and resources to bring you the best possible water and fishing opportunities this river has to offer. Our goal is to provide unmatched access and variety of water at a level never before possible.
The Miramichi River has been "THE" destination of serious Atlantic Salmon anglers for over a century. Little wonder when you consider the Miramichi River produces annual Atlantic Salmon runs in excess of 100,000 fish.
Camp Stanton offers extensive private water on some of the most remote and breathtaking rivers in the region.
The home waters of the Cains River cover over 5 kilometers and 18 private pools. Guests also have the opportunity to fish private water on all branches of the Miramichi system.
Fishing at Camp Stanton begins as the ice leaves the river, usually mid April. Your guide will pilot you from pool to pool as you seek out that hot spot just teeming with hungry spring salmon. June through August brings bright salmon to the river and fishing is good on all branches of the Miramichi. The Cains River comes alive in September as the big fall salmon start to stack up in the home waters.
Brook Trout season begins in May and it isn't long before the big sea run brookies are in the river. It’s common to catch brookies in the 4 to 5 pound range and during the height of the run trout of 7 pounds and up have been caught. Native river and stream trout are always in abundance and just about any water deep enough to cover their backs will be full of these wild trout and offer plenty of fun on lightweight gear
"Thanks James for the single best atlantic salmon week I can recall.
The spectacular fishing was amazing, and your part of the Miramichi was so interesting to fish, but what goes as to caring service, superb food and lovely accommodation is at an international level of excellence I rarely find. Sonia and I cant wait to return. All the best." Jim and Sonia Futaleufu, Chile.
The Northwest Miramichi
The Northwest Miramichi has been a well-kept secret for generations. The Northwest has had little development in its past. Running out of the Christmas and Historian mountain ranges, the upper reaches are in remote unsettled territory. The variety of terrain offers a plethora of fishing opportunities. From the meandering channels and gravel bars of the lower river to the fast-flowing boulder-strewn streams like the Big Sevogle with its deep clear holding pools, the Northwest has enough water to keep a salmon fisher happy for a lifetime.
The Little Southwest Miramichi
The Little Southwest Miramichi is for the most part is an open river with 25 miles of productive public water. Big broad gravel bars intersected by ledges of blue granite form the majority of good fishing waters. Late June thru to late July and again as temps cool in the fall is considered to be prime time..
The Southwest Miramichi
The Southwest Miramichi includes tributaries Renous, Dungarvon and Bartholomew, From April to October excellent fishing is available, We have extensive private water available covering from just above the head of tide in Renous to above Boistown. The Southwest spring season normally starts April 15th and good numbers of salmon can be expected right thru to the end of May. Late May will usually see the first bright salmon hooked, this is what is refferd to as the Rocky Brook run, in recent years there has bee a return of very large salmon in early to mid June. The grilse run is strongest in July and good fishing can be had right thru the summer. Fall is always a special time on the river and with fall rains comes a new surge of salmon from the salt water.
