Fishing

The Bras D’or lakes has some really good fishing. You can fish for lots of different species of fish in the Bras D’or lakes. The best thing about fishing in Nova Scotia is that a fishing license is not required to fish in salt water!

You can fish for the following in the Bras D’or Lakes:

  • herring
  • brown trout
  • rainbow trout
  • cod
  • salmon
  • flounder
  • eel
  • much more

You can rent a boat and go out on the lake to go fishing or you can fish from land from a few places.
