Cains River

Cains River

The Cains River is a Canadian river in New Brunswick. It is 113 kilometres long. [ [ "Columbia Gazeteer"] ]

The Cains River has its origins in the "Bantalor Game Refuge" in the eastern part of York County, near the boundary with Sunbury County. Generally flowing northeast through heavy forests, the Cains River joins the Southwest Miramichi River at Howard, NB. The Southwest Miramichi River then joins the Northwest Miramichi River at Newcastle, NB, which is also the location of the mouth of the river where it empties out.

Much of the upper Cains River is crown land,owned by the government, and therefore cannot be purchased for private use. It is public water and therefore can be used by any fisherman. Unlike the Miramichi River, a guide is not necessary on this river (for those who are not NB residents) because it is a noted trout river as well.

The river is noted for Atlantic Salmon fishing, especially in the autumn. A popular fly pattern originated for the dark, tannin-stained waters of the Cains is the Copper Killer. Some of the best pools in the lower Cains River are private water and care must be used here.There is some public water just above the famed Mouth of the Cains salmon pool, but access can be difficult. Salmon fishing is usually best there after a heavy fall rain raises the water level and causes pods of large salmon to begin to move up the Cains River in search of their spawning beds.
