The Nabisipi River is a hidden gem of the Côte-Nord region, flowing into the Gulf of St-Laurent west of Aguanish. Its source, Lac Saumur, lies 160 kilometers further north. The rushing watercourse criss-crosses the Canadian Shield, ending its course at a magnificent mouth where whales can be admired. The sea air brings a calm atmosphere, in stark contrast to the torrents and rapids that mark the river.
The Nabisipi River, whose toponym in the Innu language translates as "river of man", is characterized by fairly late runs starting in July, made up mainly of large salmon. It has always been frequented by aboriginal communities. The river's banks were also home to a research station in the 1960s. An old fish pass is still used by salmon. Today, the resource is protected by the Nabisipi Outfitter, co-managed by the Innu, which encourages the grazing of all salmon caught on its territory.
Sport fishing is practiced along the last 40 km of river, in five pools accessible by wading or boat. One of these, the Brown Pool, is a combination of six or seven pools where several anglers can comfortably set up. The average catch is between three and five kilos.
