Stewiacke River, Nova Scotia

Location: Stewiacke River, NS
GPS: N 45° 9.430’   W 63° 20.237’
Species: Striped Bass

This Striped Bass Hotspot is a portion of the Stewiacke River, deep in the heart of Nova Scotia that really produces fish early in the season. Stripers move into and through this area in the spring during their spawning ritual. There are literally thousands of fish stacked up and days of catching twenty (or more) fish per person are very common.

Try using either live or artificial blood worms (depending on the season), or casting crankbaits or topwaters.

One thing to keep in mind: When the Bay of Fundy tides come rolling in, extreme caution should be taken. The fast current and slippery mud banks can be treacherous!
