has anybody fished on the little river or the palluc (not sure how to spell) for trout?
i heard last year they stocked the river with small salmon not sure if there is any truth to that but would be nice to see some in the near future

I haven't been to Little River or Pollett River yet this year. But overheard a fella at Walmart last week saying that there are lots of smallies in Little River. While easedropping on the conversation...
....I didn't hear him mention anything about Salmon.

The only place I've fished in Salisbury so far this season is the Petitcodiac River. Some good sized trout in the Petty.

where about on the peti right in Salisbury at the bridge?There's been a lot of talk of Sea Trout in the Peti. system.I've seen no evidence of "bright" fish.I fished these rivers for the last ten years.These big trout are just river fish.There are however lots of Gaspereau in the Peti. system right now, which is a sign of good things to come, maybe one day the Stripers will follow them up.I don't agree with people asking for spots on an open forum.Learning the river and how to fish is a big part of the game!It shows you live in Salisbury?You should be the one giving the advice!LOL!

i've never fished the petti or anywhere in Salisbury that is why I asked the question. People on this site are always looking for advise and new fishing spots to try, since we are all for the conservation of fish there should be enough to go around.

DT, there certainly was up 'til they opened the gates this year.
I haven't been up there since then so can't tell you if that has changed since the gates opened or not.

I've been waiting and trying so hard but just can't land my first bass yet, I'm starting to give up hope, but I'm gonna keep trying. So under the bridge running over the petty?

It could have been a salmon or shad. I have seen alot of shad lately in the rivers around NB

Got a couple small bass tonight in the Little River under the bridge. There were others but not taking. The small ones I dot were on a Cotton Cordell mini Big O silver/black color. There were lots of fish jumping some were bass but I am not sure what some of the others were.

for the jumping . I'm positive it's not a trout .. trout don't jump to the extent of seeing 18" .. they roll and slurp .. shad they will roll and flash a siver goldish color I have never seen one break water .. i could be wrong .. as it is only what i have seen fishing shad before .. gaspreux will cause a splash that will make you think .. what the heck but in sense it's a school that is much like ducks they follow the leader .. and anyone encountering a schools of those will know they travel in big groups and when one goes to the top they all follow even if it causes them to be on top of each other hence the breaking of water and looking like a massive fish jumping ..

That's bad news for the river system, what knucklehead brought those in?
As much fun as pickerel are this can't be good, I haven't even seen any trout in the little river but people say they are catching some. I've caught 5 bass so far in the littler river.
