Cornwallis River

Flowing directly through the center of Kentville before emptying into the Minas Basin near Wolfville, the Cornwallis River offers excellent fishing opportunities for Brown and Brook Trout. This river is conveniently located in our beautiful valley that boasts stunning views, vineyards, hiking trails (consider Cape Split Trail), and beaches influenced by Bay of Fundy tides. Cornwallis also offers night fishing for Brown Trout from April to December.
