I want to take my new kayak out for its first long journey and thought that putting in by the Springville cemetery and taking out at New Glasgow and maybe do some fly fishing along the way.

I haven't fished that stretch of the river yet so have no idea of what its like. I know around Black Rock/Basin and down in the Stellarton/New Glasgow area really god but that's it.

So if anyone know of any spots to look out for, get out and walk around, low spots, or even a better place to go, I'd appreciate it! haha

I personally would wait for the next big rain (day after) to ensure you are free sailing rather than carrying your yak over rocky spots.

Yeah... the river looks bone dry right now so it would be more of a hike than a paddle lol
