I drive past the Nine Mile River on my way to work. I'm new to fishing the area. I don't expect specifics, of course, but is it worth fishing? If I started, say near the 102, and worked from there, will I be wasting an evening?

Trout is my target, and size don't matter :) fishing isn't a waste, but it's nice to know there's at least an outside shot at getting something. If nothing else, it'll be an open spot of moving water to practice fly casting!
Thanks, Tony.

If you prefer not to park on the highway. You can take the elmsdale exit, go right at the stop heading past The Superstore, look for Garden Rd. on the right (couple Km's at most from the ramp). Nice strech of water.

Nice river for brookies,great hatches of caddis and mayfly.I have caught some good sized brookies up to 16" and find very little fishing pressure in the areas obove the 102 highway.

I usually just fish it with rubber boots, even if the water is high you can usually find a place to cast from. Was below the highway tonight, decent water level, still shad around.

I know this is a little late, but I fished right behind the Sobeys in the middle of April. We parked beside the Pierceys by the gate. I threw about 10 casts in getting nibbles on about 5 casts. Then I got a decent sized trout on, about 10-11 inches. Brought him into shore. My friends girlfriend got picture of it, If i can find out how to get the pic from Facebook to here, i will post it up. Fished for about 2 hours. Got one more small trout into shore and 2 more that got off. All in all a good day. Didnt get time to go back though, I know I'll be hitting that spot up again next season. Just wondering if anybody knows when the shad run is and if you can get shad in the spot. Thanks Posted Image
