I have fished it once in the fall, but can't really offer much insite. As I recall I was told it was a bit late for good fishing. I would expect that most of the standard flies would work as they do on other Cape Breton rivers. It was a considerable hike in to the upper pool, and I remember wading downriver to the next pool where I saw fish, but did not connect. I had to bushwack back to the upper pool as I could not find a trail. It sure must have been a hardy bunch of folks to homestead upriver as they had to cut quite a road into the side of that mountain. Beautiful place to see though.
You can catch a lot of fish, and you can keep a lot of fish. But you can't do both very long. Jim Timmins
