Hello,

 Does anyone fish this river for trout? It looks like a nice stream but when I did fished it I saw nothing nor hooked anything. I would appreciate any information you could give me. Thank you.

I've fished part of it and didn't have any luck.

Thank you, guest, I appreciate your input. When do the gaspereau run on that river, when they run I never have any success? Thank you.

Have seen fish in it - not trout, and they didn't care about the bait... haven't caught a single thing and have fished it more than a few times... better swimming than fishing I guess. Only have fished it on the bridge along the Rawdon Hills

I've fished it east of the vaughn road bridge and not caught anything. I've seen plenty of very small trout under the scotch village station road bridge during the summer while swimming. But I've never seen the rise of a larger trout or caught any of any size whether using baits or lures.

Thank you, Five, I was just wondering if there were any trout in it at all. I would like to find a few nice streams to fish this year closer to Dartmouth. Thanks to some friends, I have a lot of different streams to fish but they are quite a ways from Cole Harbour so I'm hoping to find a few smaller streams thar are closer. The rods I use are light weight fly rods in the 3&4wgt range which are great fun even on small trout. As I release everything, my impact on a stream is kept to a minimum which is my modest contribution to conservation.
