Fishing on the

Old Fort River


Old Fort River

Located near the Labrador border on the North Shore, the Old Fort River flows through a deep valley before entering the Gulf of St. Lawrence 55 kilometres east of Blanc-Sablon. The river's mouth is scattered with islets and islands, forming a vast marsh where wild birdlife abounds. The ocean panoramas are exceptionally beautiful. Several large land mammals inhabit the area, such as black bear, moose, woodland caribou, wolf and lynx.

The village of Old Fort may be one of the oldest villages in Quebec. Jacques Cartier is said to have discovered the area in 1534, when he stopped at Port-Saint-Servan near the mouth of the river.

Morgains Camps Outfitter owns a total pristine water area covering 127 square kilometres, and holds exclusive fishing rights over the Old Fort River. There are 10 major salmon holding pools and several other secondary pools that also hold brook trout and arctic char.
