PEI Salmon Fishing Guide

Come test your skills against a tough fighting fish, the Atlantic Salmon

There are five principal streams in PEI where Atlantic salmon can be angled. These are the Morell, Valleyfield, West, Dunk, and Trout Rivers. Most of the salmon angled are taken in the Morell River, on the north-eastern side of the Island. This is the only river on Prince Edward Island that is a scheduled river, and its main branch can be fished only by fly after June 1.

Although the salmon run is primarily composed of grilse, some salmon in excess of 20 lbs have been encountered. The season extends from June 1 to late November, but the best fishing for salmon occurs from mid-June to late July. Fishing for Atlantic salmon is by fly only. On the Morell River, many anglers enjoy trolling flies for salmon in Leards Pond where a small boat is required. However, most angling for salmon is done by wading the main river. Popular salmon fly patterns on the Island include: green machine, mickey finn and black bear with red or green butts. Advice from resident anglers will prove to be valuable.

PEI Atlantic salmon fishing is open from June 1st to September 15th in all waters but the Morell River and a few others where catch and release with barbless hooks can continue on to November 30th. Atlantic Salmon fishing is restricted to artificial flies only ( no spinners ).
