Majestic settings

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region has a total of four salmon rivers with sometimes very fast or slow-moving waters. These rivers are all surrounded by the rugged mountains of the majestic Saguenay Fjord and flow through some picturesque villages. Fishing here is made easy and accessible since these rivers are never far from urban centers and regional tourist destinations.

The waters in Saguenay show ocher and red earth colors, and provide various fishing conditions depending on the river. Beginners are able to wade in slower flowing stretches of water, which is ideal for someone who is just learning how to fly fish. As for beginners and experienced anglers alike, they will both require a certain amount of bravery if they are to take on any fish found in the more turbulent sections.

Certain rivers in the area are also well known for sea-run brook trout fishing. Anglers can appreciate the wide range of tourist attractions found in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, with its great places to eat and stay, and many things to do such as whale watching and canoeing.
