Fishing thee

Vieux Fort River

In brief

Vieux Fort River

Located on the edge of the Côte-Nord region, near the Labrador border, the Rivière du Vieux Fort flows through a steep valley before emptying into the Gulf of St. Lawrence 55 kilometers east of Blanc-Sablon. Its mouth is dotted with islands and islets, forming a vast marsh teeming with birdlife. Its marine panoramas are of exceptional beauty. Several large land mammals inhabit the hinterland, including black bear, moose, woodland caribou, wolf and lynx.

Old Fort is said to be one of the oldest villages in Quebec. Jacques Cartier is said to have stopped here in 1534, at Port-Saint-Servan, west of Old Fort, near the mouth of the river.

Morgains Camps Outfitter covers 127 square kilometers of pristine water and holds exclusive fishing rights on the Vieux Fort River. It offers ten main pools and a series of secondary pools also frequented by brook trout and Arctic char.
