The Musquanousse River, also known as the "Little Musquaro River", winds its way through six lakes in an aquatic network that considerably amplifies its size. Stretching 28 kilometers from its source, the river is actually 60 kilometers long before joining the Gulf of St-Laurent. Together with its tributaries, it drains a watershed of 338 square kilometers.
In addition to Atlantic salmon, this network of waterways is home to several salmonid species: anadromous brook trout, speckled trout and landlocked salmon. The river is also frequented by bustards and ducks. Moose, bears, wolves and bald eagles can easily be observed in the surrounding mountainous landscape of unparalleled tranquility.
All the lakes along the Musquanousse River are accessible to salmon, to varying degrees. Some may even make it all the way to the head lake. Musquanousse Outfitters holds exclusive rights to the entire river and chain of lakes, as well as the estuary. Salmon fishing takes place in nine pools, by wading and by boat.
