PEI has lots of fresh water and lots of phenominal
Edward Island offers 1,100 miles of coastline, deeply indented with
many estuaries and bays. Other than barrier beach ponds, which can be
found at the mouth of many streams, there are few natural lakes. However,
there are more than 800 artificial ponds, many originally constructed
as mill ponds. The streams themselves are short and spring fed; most
originating from springs that discharge 7 C water in summer and winter.
As a result, streams on Prince Edward Island are less dependent upon
surface run-off and maintain good flows, even in summer.
Edward Island is one of the few places in North America where the brook
trout or speckled trout, is still king. The large input of mineral rich
groundwater, combined with short streams and large estuaries, has created
ideal conditions for brook trout. Brook trout can be found in virtually
every stream on the Island, with sea run trout, the fish most sought
after by anglers, ranging from ½ lb to 6 lbs. Bait, fly or lures
are used to take sea trout.
