|Fishing, Hunting and Resort|
Magical landscapes, a diverse array of habitats, and an abundance of such headline species as white-tailed deer, caribou, and Atlantic salmon make Duplessis a favorite destination for fans of hunting, fishing, and outdoor adventure.
Whether remote or close to civilization, Duplessis parks, reserves, outfitters, and ZECs (wildlife management areas) deliver unforgettable hunting, fishing, and family getaways. Dreaming of heading out by boat or plane in search of adventure in the Basse-Côte-Nord region or the northern backcountry? Or would you rather explore the more accessible Port-Cartier/Sept-Îles or Minganie areas? Either way you'll find virgin wilderness and pristine nature in abundance.
Trout and salmon far outnumber people in Duplessis, where you'll catch as many cherished memories as fish. Lakes and rivers in the region are teeming with indigenous brook trout, which in many cases is the only species. The result is unbelievable fishing.
East of Sept-Îles lies the magical kingdom of the Atlantic salmon. Lake trout, ouananiche, whitefish, and northern pike are another reason why anglers fall for our region hook, line, and sinker!
When winter comes, a snowmobile expedition is a great way to go ice fishing. Brook trout can be fished on most rivers and lakes, while the rainbow smelt found at certain river mouths is one of our region's unique attractions.
Extraordinary Hunting Grounds
The hunting possibilities in Duplessis are endless. Moose and black bear are found throughout most of the region, while thousands of white-tailed deer (160,000 at the last count) can be found on Anticosti, where bag rates are among the highest in North America. In the Fermont region, avid caribou hunters can retain the services of an outfitter when the herds pass through on their migration. Also popular are the snowshoe hare, the ruffed grouse, the spruce goose, the willow ptarmigan, and a vast array of waterfowl.
The region is home to over forty outfitters, two controlled harvesting zones (one for salmon and one for game), and a wildlife reserve, many of which have exclusive territorial hunting and fishing rights. They offer accommodation and rental services, and a wide variety of packages to meet every budget. For those who would rather set out on their own, much of the region is still free-access public land.
