Colinet Travel Guide

Colinet is an incorporated town of 165 located on the northwest arm of St. Mary's Bay in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The town is notable for two rivers, the Rocky and the Colinet, which enter the sea in or near the town.

Both rivers attract lots of visitors. The Rocky River has a man-made salmon ladder spanning the 8 metre waterfalls at its mouth. Originally not a salmon river because of those falls, the river was seeded with salmon fry in the mid 1980's. The salmon began using the man-made ladder to bypass the falls in 1987. In 2002, the river opened to recreational anglers, making it Atlantic Canada's newest salmon river.

The Colinet River drops into a deep gorge, forming a spectacular waterfall known locally as ‘The Cataracts’ and listed by the provincial government's parks division as one of 6 "Natural and Scenic Attractions". A series of trails and steep steps lead from the bridge over the gorge, down the steep sides, to the base of the waterfall.
