Fly Fishing for Atlantic Salmon and Brook Trouts

The Margaree is one of the most beautiful North American rivers and it was appointed as a Heritage River.  It splits into two parts at our property; hence the name Margaree Forks. The part coming from the mountain (North East Margaree) is only to be fished by fly starting June 1st.

The normal catch in the Margaree river ranges from 6 to 20 pounds with an average catch being 10 pounds. The record catch in the Margaree is 52 lbs!

The salmon season on the Margaree begins June 1 and continues until October 31.

Some of the best pools are: Forks and Dollar – in walking distance. Tidal, Lower Tompkins, Seal, Gillis Island, Snag, Doyles Bridge Wash, Etheridge, are all within a 10-minute radius from the Inn.

If you have experience in Fly-Fishing you can fish on your own, because Guides are not mandatory in Nova Scotia.
You can have for free our description “How to find the Pools of the Margaree River” when you arrive.

Fishing Tackle a one hand rod of 8 to 10 feet, from 7 weight to 9 weight, or a two hand rod of 12 to 14 feet.

We have now an excellent fishing for Striped Bass right at our Property and at the coastline in Margaree Harbor and the beach, just 10 minutes drive.
