The Napetipi River ends its course in the Gulf of St-Laurent about 35 kilometers from the village of Saint-Augustin, after criss-crossing the Canadian Shield for 113 kilometers, most of it between high rocky shores. Twice along its course, it widens to form lakes: Lake Jamyn (or Napetipiu Nipi) and, some 12 kilometers from its mouth, Lake Napetipi.
This inaccessible waterway is an Eldorado for salmon fishing, which is particularly energetic in these cool waters. Anadromous brook trout and brown trout also frequent the river, to the delight of anglers. Several large mammals inhabit the hinterland, including black bear, moose and wolf, as well as animals long coveted for their fur, such as American mink and red fox.
A non-exclusive outfitter, Napetipi River Outfiters, offers nature lovers the chance to experience unique moments in this unspoiled environment, cradled by unforgettable sunsets. Its facilities are located on the shores of Lake Pareme, northwest of Lake Napetipi. You'll find three salmon fishing sectors, which you'll fight only for sport, as the outfitter advocates catch-and-release.
