Walking the trail yesterday had me planning an outdoors meal, so far I'm thinking for Greens I'll pick some spring fiddleheads, meat I'll go with a feed of fresh smelts or trout and for the third item on the plate straight from the land.... not sure yet.

The place that most fish there is the Bridge right beside Reid's Meats in Melanson. Below the bridge is angling (Jigging) above is dipping. Best time to go, IMO, is at low water or when the river is just coming in. There is more room on the bank to jig, or if above to dip.
I always, I emphasize always, stay clear of it after schools is out or in the afternoons, on weekends, in the afternoons, when everyone is there. It becomes a tangled mess of lines. The area that most jig at is rather small, particularly when lots are there.
I was there this morning at 7ish, tide on the rise but still not to high there, I came and left with no one else there. Got a feed in 15 minutes.
The run has just started, so I was told, it is early, the fish were plentiful.
If you jig use a treble hook with a bit of weight, bring a few extras, lots of snags. DFO signage is on the telephone pole regarding limits for both smelt and Bass, although the signage appeared very aged?

Regardless, give it a shot, fun, a few fish and an event, entertaining if you watch some of the folks there, particularly if you have never been there.
