Fishing Conditions – Rainfall, Water Level


Clicking on the map shows the fire weather index for the last 24 hours, updated each day around 1 pm. The "RN24 mm" column is the rainfall reading in mm. All DNR measuring stations in Nova Scotia, as shown on the map, are included.

Even if you live on or near the St. Mary’s these statistics can play an important role in helping you plan your time or advise friends regarding fishing conditions. Trafalgar, Garden of Eden, and Stillwater are the most important measurements for St. Mary's River. Beech Hill measurements can help determine Antigonish area conditions, Lundy measurements can be used for eastern Guysborough county, and McLellan's Brook for eastern Pictou County.  

Fishing Conditions – Water Level at Stillwater Bridge

Environment Canada’s “real-time hydrometric data website” shows, in graphical form, water levels at various sites, including the St. Mary’s River at the Stillwater Bridge. The website describes the service as follows:

“The near real-time information presented on this website is received via satellite or land-line transmissions from hydrometric gauging stations owned by Environment Canada and its Partners. These data are normally posted (in graphical form) within four hours of observation.”

You can visit the website by clicking on the flag below.
To see the Stillwater graph, click on the Google map location “St. Mary’s River at Stillwater - (01EO001) – (NS)”. Time periods can be adjusted to suit your purposes.
