Trout and Atlantic salmon populate the countless brooks and lakes of the area and draw anglers from around the globe.

Take a guided salmon fishing excursion, or head out on the ocean to try your hand at cod fishing. You can get a sense of the hardships faced by the generations that have spent their lives on the sea as part of this centuries-old calling.




This region is rich with Atlantic salmon, with six early run rivers within a 30 km range, and easy access to favourite pools. Like the salmon, anglers from around the world return again and again to these rivers, some with a guide alongside, looking to hook a prized catch as the sun rises. Atlantic salmon are legendary, and these rivers wait to help you earn the bragging rights of bringing one ashore.


Whether you savour sea trout or brookies, you will be happy with the many brooks and ponds for dropping a line.
