Home Pool Lodge

Vickers Salmon Pools

011In 1946 our family began hosting Atlantic salmon anglers on the Main Southwest Miramichi River in Howard, New Brunswick, Canada for Miramichi River fishing.  In 2005, we built a spacious five bedroom cedar lodge. The living room overlooks our home pool.  Rooms for fly tying and entertainment (TV, XM, computer, fax), as well as two bedrooms and a full bath, are on the ground level.  On the first floor are three bedrooms, two full baths,  a living room, a dining room, and kitchen.

In 2009, we added an A-frame log cabin with a first floor bedroom and sleeping loft near Washburn’s Island. In 2010, we constructed  a traditional two bedroom cabin on the Cains River in Shinnickburn, NB.

Our private pools include Vickers’ Bar, Johnson’s Rock, Burke’s Bar, Washburn Pool, and the Brophy Pool. Three of our private pools are only a few feet from our Lodge. The pools have a gravel bottom and are easy to wade.

When the Cains River water levels are right, we offer five or ten mile river-runs in our Old Town Canoes.

Our guides are dedicated to your successful angling.

Join us in the peaceful, secluded surroundings of the Miramichi and Cains River valleys.  See you in 2016!

Our Policy: 

We encourage our anglers to call us a week before their reserved time.  If the river’s conditions (height, temperature, flow, clarity) are sub-optimal, or the number of Atlantic salmon entering the river is significantly less than during a similar period in previous years, we will tell you and offer you another time.  

Our policy at Vickers Atlantic Salmon Pools is  Hook and Release.
