Default Any Atlantic salmon chasers?

Hi folks,
Atlantic salmon season just around the corner here in New Brunswick on the Miramichi River. Season opens April 15, fishing at this time is for kelts, a.k.a. black salmon, slinks. These are fish that have overwintered in the river and are descending back to the ocean, they have lost approx 1/3 of their body weight, and it's the only time they actually feed in fresh water making them much better takers, they certainly are NOT the "sport" they were when asscending to the spawning grounds. Weather and water very cold during this time and most angling is done from boats using sinking lines and big streamers, a great cure for the winter blues none the less.
The runs of fresh, bright Atlantics will come around the end of June and continue until season end in Oct. Floating lines, wet and dry flies, wade or canoe fishing MAN this is anglong at it's finest.
Any one here an Atlantic salmon angler?
