Come and experience this world class, bucket list fly fishery! The Stewiacke River is the spawning grounds for 2 major populations of striped bass here in Nova Scotia. Beginning in late May to mid/late June, stripers will enter the river by the thousands to spawn. Swings flies over thousands of large striped and enjoy the spectacle of the striper spawn. The Stewiacke River is a tidal river fed by the Bay of Fundy’s tides which are the largest in the world. You will experience the river level rise 20-30 feet making this a truly unique fishery and experience that can only be found here in Nova Scotia. If you enjoy catching stripers on the fly, this is should be on your bucket list! I can also accommodate traditional spinning gear for those that do not fly fish.

Operator since 2016
I started fishing when I was 5 years old. Over 30 years later and the passion continues to grow. I not only enjoy catching fish but equally enjoy watching others catch fish as well. I chose to become a licensed fishing guide to spread the knowledge and joy that I have been blessed with over the years.
