Hey guys! I live in the Rothesay area of New Brunswick. I have a question for all of you. Where is a good place to go fishing in Rothesay/Quispamsis/Saint John/Sussex/Hampton this time of year (from the shoreline)? And for what type of fish? I love fishing for smallies but I have heard that pickerel put up a good fight also! Any input would be great!

hi craig, welcome. the Hammond river sounds like your spot. you can walk and fish the shore for miles, fishing from bridge to bridge and back can be fun. lots of smallies, some trout,some big yellow perch, some pickeral in the lower sections along possibilies of stripers and sturgeon.

you can also take the ferry to Kingston penninsula. the coast is grat for pickeral, stripers and other species, the streams and brooks hold good numbers of trout, the lake can have trout to pickeral. tiny streams can have good size fish on the right day.

Thanks alot for the tips ipop! I have fished the Hammond before, landed a good size pickerel and a smallie. I guess knowing where to fish is the main thing. When you say the " lower sections" where excactly do u mean?

i consider the lower sections from the salmon association down, but really its from french village bridge down, but it depends on water and fish runs. in summer i would consider the train bridge down for striper and sturgeon, but that's just a "most likely", as striper in particular like to roam and travel for food.

hit by the isolated trees.
don't miss where the hammond and kennibicasis meet.
