You are actually quite close to many productive salmon rivers such as the Gold, LaHave, St Marys and are also about 4-5 hours from the Margaree River as well as all the other fine CB rivers. There is the east River in Antigonish which is a good fall river and you have the East, Middle and West Rivers in and around New Glasgow. Head to Oxford and you have the River Phillip which is a great Brown Trout fishery as well as a gem of a fall salmon stream.
To answer your main question though,, yes,, most all of these systems will handle the shorter speys and some will work with the 13'-14' rods. I fish alot of these rivers with a 12'6" rod as well as an 11'6'. I sometimes use a 14' on the Margaree but that is as big as i go.
Feel free to PM with specifics if you need any help in and a round NS
There are only two options, you can fish above me or B-LOW me!!!!!
