Known for its crystal clear water, this river is equaled by his reputation. The annual salmons (2500 to 3500) getting in sets this river among the most productive in Quebec. Destination’s of choice for American fishermen, the river is very accessible and offers, in addition to excellent fishing potential, landscapes of rare beauty. All the registration and registration procedures for the various draws are supported and supervised by the outfitter.

Fishing is practiced by canoe or wading, depending on river conditions, and spread over several sectors. The guide is dealing with the registration, permit and different drawing so that fishermen can focus solely on fishing and fully enjoy their stay.
