Fishing for salmon in



Carte - Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean

Access to the region

Route 175 is the main road link between Saguenay and Lac-Saint-Jean and the rest of Quebec. The region is also accessible by air, rail and sea.

Majestic scenery

Four salmon rivers, sometimes fast-moving, sometimes slow-flowing, run alongside the rugged mountains of the majestic Saguenay Fjord and through picturesque villages. These majestic waterways criss-cross valleys in the heart of breathtaking scenery and are easily accessible, as they are never far from towns and regional tourist destinations.

The water features ochre, red earth and brown reflections, and offers varied fishing conditions from river to river. Beginners can try their hand at wading in low-flow areas, ideal for an introductory fly fishing day. As for initiates and experienced anglers, they'll need a good dose of daring to tackle the salmon in sectors where the water is livelier.

Some of the region's rivers are renowned for anadromous brook trout fishing. Anglers will also appreciate Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean's wide range of tourist attractions, from accommodations and fine dining to activities such as marine mammal watching.
