Wallace River

Situated centrally along Nova Scotia's north shore, the Wallace River attracts anglers from all across the province (and beyond) for its fantastic Brook Trout, Brown Trout and Atlantic Salmon fishing during their respective seasons. This river is nestled among a number of other popular river systems on our north shores, including River Philip and Waughs River, to name a few! Access this river via scenic drives through Wentworth, or across our beautiful Sunrise Trail that hugs the Atlantic coast.
