East River Pictou

Flowing directly through the heart of New Glasgow, East River Pictou is sure to offer excellent fishing opportunities for sea-run trout and Atlantic Salmon during their respective seasons. Convenience of location is key in describing this river - its proximity to the city ensures access to all your urban needs, while still being able to escape to quieter, serene spots further upstream. Nearby, you can also fish Trenton Park - a provincially stocked pond with barrier free fishing access.
