Sitting in the heart of SW Nova Scotia lays one of the most underrated and over looked trout fisheries in the province. Shrouded in stigma as a weekend warrior paradise, Kejimkujik National Park or Keji for short is an utter nightmare in the summer months; wall to wall campers, people walking trails that have no place being in the wilderness, the Canoe Rental Area is reminiscent of an Amusement park attraction... Keji in the spring time however, is a whole different place. From April 1st to May 20th, a fly angler can experience a world class brook trout fishery all to themselves. The best part is these fish are wild. The major river system that runs through Keji is the Mersey, it's a medium to large river system, that offers miles of untouched water. During the spring time, an average day on the Mersey can produce an average of 10-15 fish with sizes ranging from 8"-17". Check The Hatch Chart 1 Box Streamers (any streamer Postfly puts in your box will be magic) Bear Spray (you probably won't see a bear, but you are in bear country and more than likely to see one when fishing alone) Also worth noting, you may want to rent an SUV. The roads aren't terrible but definitely a little rough for the average rental sedan. Milford House in Milford, Nova Scotia offers rustic lakeside cabins and a full service dining room, located only a 15 min drive from the park entrance. It's a truly classic fishing camp experience. Where To Eat The Wilder Restaurant & General Store in Maitland Bridge, NS. Located just outside the entrance to Keji, The Wilder has one of the best breakfast burritos in the province, as well as massive burgers and a great local craft brew selection. It's a great place to start and/or end your day. Lequille Country Store, Lequille, NS. One of those, "everything but the kitchen sink," type of stores. It has a limited fly selection, but usually has what you need. My personal favorite is the good price on wool socks and the honey garlic beef sticks. They also sell Keji Fishing permits and legal moonshine. Yes, legal moonshine. Who To Call Scotian|Anglers. I'm a local river bum and knowledgeable guide for the area. I'll also pack gourmet shore lunches and include top-notch customer service.
