Pugwash River

Nestled closely between River Philip and Wallace River, the Pugwash River is another river along Nova Scotia's north shore that is often frequented by those angling for sea-run trout. This river runs directly through Pugwash, a coastal town that offers a number of quaint, local shops for you to visit as you make your way across our scenic Sunrise Trail. Other rivers in this area may also suit your fancy if you're aiming for more opportunity for sea-run trout.
