New Brunswick's river systems support a famous
inland sports fishery.
ew Brunswick has sometimes
been referred to as the "river province". Several main river systems
dissect the province from north, south, east and west, providing a
suitable habitat for the great Atlantic Salmon, especially in the
northern half of the province. Brook Trout are also plentiful in the
rivers and lakes of this region. In the more populous south, there
are several varieties of trout and the Smallmouth Bass, a sport fish
which, until the 1960s, was all but ignored.
