Flyfishing in Prince Edward Island is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. Let me be your guide for a customized fishing adventure tailored just for you. I have been flyfishing in eastern PEI for more than 30 years and know this area well. Whether you like to fish from the shores of our many ponds, brooks and rivers, or wade in our streams, or fish from a boat, I will put together a fishing adventure to suit your abilities. From the novice to the advanced flyfisher we have just what you are looking for here on our beautiful island.



Some of the adventures I can offer are:

  • For the beginner: I will teach you how to tie a fly and how to use a fly rod (it’s not as hard as you may think!). We will then (hopefully) catch a fish and I will teach you how to release it properly, after we get a few pictures of course.
  •  If you are a more experienced flyfisher, I can take you to our many ponds, brooks or rivers. We have a few ponds stocked with rainbow trout that exceed 15lbs and we can try some rivers for Atlantic Salmon. White Perch are abundant in some rivers and ponds in the area, with some reaching up to 3lbs – lots of fun on the fly! Mackerel fishing off local wharves can be fun for the whole family and quite a challenge on the fly.


Most streams on the Island tend to be short and originate from mineral rich springs that discharge 7˚C water all year round. This makes for excellent habitat for brook (speckled) trout, with some reaching up to 6lbs. Some of these trout venture out to sea to feed on shrimp and bait fish. From mid-May to late-July sea run brookies and rainbow trout can be caught in the mouths of our many rivers. In the hot days of August, brookies tend to head to the smaller brooks which are cooled by the springs that feed them. In late-August and September the rainbow trout can be found at the head of some rivers getting ready to travel up into the brooks for the winter and to spawn in the spring. P.E.I. also has a catch and release fishery for the Atlantic Salmon which inhabit some of the local rivers. The best time for fishing salmon is from mid-June to late-July.
