Fishing the

Corneille River

In brief

Corneille River

The Corneille River is unique in its location in the heart of the Mingan Archipelago, protected by the myriad of islands at its mouth. This site is ideally located for watching the mythical Atlantic salmon run up the river every year, while teasing sea trout. With 20 linear km of exclusive-rights river, you'll have the time of your life discovering the beauty of its pools. Other species of fish can also be found on the upper lakes: landlocked salmon, speckled trout and Arctic char. Our 5* cottages on the La Corneille peninsula offer a relaxing, comfortable stay on the shores of the Gulf of St-Laurent, with local gastronomy and the occasional seal or cetacean sighting. A haven of peace that will appeal to fishermen and vacationers alike.
