Actually, I said "Trout streams don't freeze". And that was in response to someone saying they'd need ice fishing gear to fish for trout in the winter. What I meant was that there are parts on every trout stream that remain open in the winter. How that devolved into a personal argument, I have no idea. There are plenty of places to get involved in personal arguments on the internet, and I am glad to say that this is not one of them.
Now, I may not be familiar with the Miramichi, but if you went further upstream to the skinny water, would you find open, fishable water full of trout?
