Fishing the

Piashti River

In brief

Piashti River

Emblematic of this magnificent territory and a Quebec cultural heritage site, the Château Johan-Beetz has majestically overlooked the sea and the village since 1897. Staying in this charming historic residence is one of the pleasures of any fishing trip or vacation in Baie-Johan-Beetz. Three watersheds - Rivière Petite Watshishou, Rivière Piashti and Petit lac Piashti - form a superb playground populated by five salmonid species: Atlantic salmon, sea trout, Arctic char, speckled trout and landlocked salmon! Local gastronomy, seascapes carpeted with wild berries, and the discovery of a vibrant community are also on the program.
