Miramichi is beautiful in the fall as the autumn leaves grace the majestic Miramichi River. Whether it’s a tale of pioneers, a memory of being on the river, or just the fisherman’s story of the catch that got away, there’s something about the mighty Miramichi that keeps the conversation flowing. Fall is a wonderful time of year to Miramichi for optimal outdoor experiences and be sure to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the city’s amalgamation.
Miramichi is an Atlantic Salmon and Striped Bass fisherman’s paradise, with experienced anglers gathering into October to try their luck while surrounded by some of the most beautiful displays of fall colour to be found anywhere. And visitors can still enjoy fall season outdoor fun and comfortable accommodations at Upper Oxbow Adventures, Rodd Miramichi River, Country Haven Lodges, Storeytown Cottages, and Wilson’s Four Seasons Resort.
Boaters can create custom cruising plans, using local marinas, launch sites, and easy-to-find services to make sure the trip is safe and relaxing. Be sure to stop by the bustling waterfront Ritchie Wharf Park, with restaurants, shops, playground and more. And don’t forget to double check on days/hours of operation before setting out.
