Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...and good salmon will be found in abundance throughout this fine stream, hitherto barren except in its lower reaches near the sea. It contains the prime requisites for a grand salmon river--plenty of water and about twenty good pools in the course of fifteen miles between the two falls. The angler should take a canoe up the river, otherwise he will not be able to fish in the big pool under the Grand Falls. My experience shows that the salmon remain a very long time in the pools, especially one like the Grand Pool. It is over 30 feet deep, 100 yards wide, and quite 300 yards long.

This is a capital river for sport. It has long been well preserved, and the catches taken by anglers are very large. The two chief pools are known as Pinsent's Pool, about three miles from the main road, and Murphy's Pool, nearer St. John's. The angler has his choice; the first is the better one in the early part of the season, the second later on. The fish do not run very large, but are very numerous. Fifty salmon have been taken by an angler in one day. North Harbour and Colinet Rivers.

The distance to North Harbour River from the road is about two miles to the best pools. The sea trout do not run very large, but they are splendid sporting fish, more
