Default Vacationing in Nova Scotia

Hey all,

So, sorry for the Yankee coming into your forum. I have a lot of relatives that are Nova Scotia natives and we go back generations so... that makes me sort of ok right?

Anyway, I live in Colorado and I'll be heading to Nova Scotia in August to visit relatives. I'd like to try fly fishing the rivers. I'll be staying in Barrington on the southernmost tip of the Province.

Any recommendations as to where to go?

I looked around on the web and found that there are some common flies between Colorado and Nova Scotia. Like elk hair caddis, and Royal Coachman. Do you guys have the best luck with dries or do you do any nymph fishing. Can the fish see nymphs in that root beer colored water? Trout in the Colorado Rockies love midge larve, is that a go to nymph in NS?
