Atlantic Salmon Fishing Nova Scotia

Fishing The Margaree River

Experience the thrill of fly fishing in one of North America's most picturesque and accessible Atlantic Salmon Rivers – the Margaree River. Nestled amidst the stunning landscape of the Cape Breton Highlands, this renowned river is celebrated for its pristine, crystal-clear mountain waters.

Wade fishing along the Margaree River is nothing short of exceptional, with numerous pools accessible to anglers. As the entire river is open to the public, you'll have endless opportunities to explore and fish various pools, each teeming with Atlantic Salmon.

The Atlantic Salmon season in Nova Scotia kicks off on the Margaree from June 1st to October 31st. Witness the magnificent migration of large salmon returning from Greenland, ranging from 8 to 15 pounds, starting in early to late June. Following this, the summer salmon run welcomes Grilse, averaging 3 to 5 pounds, providing anglers with plenty of action throughout the season.

While fishing on Cape Breton Island is captivating year-round, autumn holds a special allure. With cool water temperatures, pleasant weather, and the breathtaking spectacle of foliage changing color, fall is the preferred time for many anglers. The Margaree River particularly shines during this season, attracting anglers with the promise of hooking into robust male salmon displaying vibrant spawning colors.

Join us for an unforgettable fishing experience on the Margaree River, where the thrill of Atlantic Salmon fishing awaits at every turn. Whether you're drawn by the challenge of landing a trophy-sized salmon or the sheer beauty of the surroundings, the Margaree River promises an adventure you'll cherish for a lifetime.
