I thought i would take up salmon fly fishing this year. First step is to buy a new fly rod that is at least 8wt. I started to look online as to when and where i am allowed to fish and was surprised to see the official posting stating areas 20,21 and 22 are closed to salmon fishing all year...from jan1 to dec 31. These areas include all of eastern shore, south shore and pretty much anything west of Halifax. Only 2 areas they are times for salmon fishing and they are the north shore and Cape Breton regions.
Is this normal to not be allowed to ever fish for salmon in 4/5th of our province or is this year a one off? I kept hearing about how fishing by Bridgewater is world famous and other areas close to me (eastern shore) are well known like Salmon River for one.
