In the heart of Nunavik's wilderness, the Delay River flows into the Rivière du Gué, whose waters flow into the Rivière aux Mélèzes, and then into the Koksoak River, Nunavik's largest river. The end of the journey, 300 kilometers away: Ungava Bay. Landscapes of boreal forest and tundra form the backdrop to this fabulous river.
The currents of the Delay River can be violent, and particularly powerful salmon are abundant. A large proportion are estuarine salmon, making short migrations between the Koksoak River and the estuary without ever reaching the open sea.
Hundreds of pools punctuate the river, and anglers enjoy great success here, as the resource is so generous. Although salmon are king, the icy waters of the Rivière Delay are also rich in speckled trout, northern pike and lake trout. The Pourvoirie de la Rivière Delay (Delay River Outfitter) holds operating leases on part of the river, offering anglers some 20 wading pools. A unique northern experience from early July to mid-September.
