Yes, you can fish on the Miramichi River with worms. There are also many different types of lures for fishing you can use successfully for fishing on the Miramichi like crickets, crawfish, and shining salmon eggs that have a hook and worm on top.
It’s a great idea to start by finding out what type of worm would be suitable for that time of the year, such as cherry red worms in the spring or black worms in the fall. You can then go out fishing with friends and family members and enjoy catching some delicious fish food!
When using a large worm, put it at the end of the hook to make sure that your lure will be strong enough. When using small-sized worms, take them out to make sure that they are not too big or too heavy for your fishing rod and catch fish easily.
When it’s spring and summer, small-sized worms work best because small fish are active in shallow water during that time of the year. If you are in the fall, use larges worms to pull the larger fish out of the deep water.
