My father and I went on annual trips to Crown Reserve locations 3-4 times (and I went another 3-4 times with other groups), yet were unsuccessful in having any fish action. Some of the reasons included didymo-filled stretches, netted-off stretched, and a general depletion of the salmon population since 2008. Although the times spent with my father were still great memories, the amount of revenue spent on these 6-8 trips should have garnered a few more positive fishing experiences also. The inadequate management by DFO of one of New Brunswick’s finest natural resources is shameful. The responsibility and duty should have been left to provincial and local authority who actually have a sincere stake in this resource and a level of care to see it maintained and enhanced!
