FREDERICTON (CNB) - New Brunswick anglers may now apply through mini-draws for available Crown reserve stretches, said Natural Resources Minister Wally Stiles.

"These mini-draws are open only to New Brunswick residents and provide an opportunity to acquire recreational angling privileges on a prime stretch of the Miramichi, Restigouche or Patapedia rivers,'' said Stiles. "These are some of the best waters anywhere to fly fish for trout and Atlantic salmon so I encourage New Brunswick anglers to take advantage of this great opportunity."

A listing of available stretches, the dates they are available and the call-in draw dates can be found on the Department of Natural Resources website or by visiting any department office.
