Nova Scotia Fishing Lodges Guide

Nova Scotia offers wonderful fishing opportunities. Both the mainland and Cape Breton Island are known for interesting fishing, sightseeing, and family vacations. The sportfisher will enjoy the bountiful yet under utilized provincial resources.

Fishing in Nova Scotia is truly spectacular with countless options to choose from. The province is almost completely surrounded by the sea and is covered by freshwater. With 4,625 miles of coastline, over 5,400 freshwater lakes and countless numbers of rivers, streams and brooks there is no shortage of places to wet a line. The crystal clear waters boast a variety of species to test your skills. Anglers can fish for salmon, speckled trout and tuna in the nearby waters.

Rent or charter a boat and cast your line into the deep blue waters off the coast of Nova Scotia for cod, mackerel, flounder and herring. In many locations along the Island's shores, boat captains are up before dawn preparing lines for the many sport fishers who will venture out onto the sea that day.

Luxury resorts, inns, family resorts, cottages, and fishing lodges, are available in price ranges to suit every budget. It can be a great way for a family to spend their vacation time together.
