The legendary Miramichi is characterized by colour. In autumn, its trees turn. And it is the meeting place for vibrant cultures – Migma, Acadians and Irish have come together here to form a rich historical tradition. But the colour that has defined the Miramichi is the silver glint of Atlantic salmon. Salmon have drawn the wealthy, the dreamer and the outdoor lover for over two centuries. Historic fishing lodges and a long-standing guiding tradition draw visitors from around the world. The two branches of the 220 kilometre Miramichi River begin in the wooded highlands of New Brunswick. As the river makes its way seaward, it becomes the Miramichi estuary until it empties into the Gulf of St. Lawrence at Miramichi Bay.
