Port Albert Fishway & Beach
Port Albert is tucked in the Nine Mile River valley as the sort of place most people overlook but want to keep to themselves once they find it. A small park and fisheries display centre with historical signs are nestled below the dam where the stream rushes over the fish ladder. The river lazily flows through pools before spilling over a sandbar into Lake Huron. Anglers congregate there to catch salmon and trout from May to September and there are nice fishing holes above Highway 21 also.
The sandy beach is a perfect spot for sunbathing in summer and viewing sunsets along the beach is fabulous. The venerable Port Albert Inn has old fashion ambience with its rustic bar and fireplace lounge.
The Nine Mile River is also a challenging canoe route for experienced white water paddlers only - especially the final concession through the "badlands" and rapids into Port Albert.
