Atlantic Salmon in Liscomb River
Wednesday, June 13th, 2012
Happy Wildlife Wednesday!
At our resort, we have many Nova Scotia hiking trails along the calming Liscomb River. One of the things to see while hiking is the salmon ladder along the Liscomb River Trail. The ladder consists of 15 pools which are separated by weirs and constructed to help restock Atlantic Salmon in the Liscomb River. The peak season for salmon is in July so keep an eye out for spawning salmon when hiking at our Nova Scotia resort.
Nova Scotia traditionally enjoys the longest Atlantic Salmon season of any Canadian province. Beginning in early May and continues to the end of October. Atlantic Salmon are found in the Northern Atlantic Ocean and in the rivers that flow into the ocean. This is why many salmon live in the rivers of our Nova Scotia resort as the Liscomb River flows out to the Atlantic Ocean.
