Very informative. We also stopped at the salmon hatchery. Great amount of information. We came here to fish and of course check out the margaree river for trout. The margaree river is catch and release for salmon.

A Margaree must do. Low key, not fancy but well worth the visit to this former schoolhouse to learn the rich history of salmon fishing in the beautiful Margaree.
