Réserve faunique de Port-Cartier - Sept-Îles

Wildlife reserve Region : Duplessis City : Port-Cartier District : Sector of Port-Cartier

Created in 1965, Port-Cartier-Sept-Îles Wildlife Reserve covers a vast swath of boreal forest near its namesake towns of Port-Cartier and Sept-Îles. With over 1000 bodies of water and some 15 rivers, the reserve is a fabulous area for outdoor activities. Lovers of solitude and wide open spaces will enjoy the soothing calm of this vast wilderness area. Reserve waterways and lakes offer sport fishermen ample opportunity to test their wits against wily, good-sized speckled trout as well as the salmon in the Rochers and MacDonald rivers. Nearly 75% of the lakes in the reserve have never been fished, making it a true unexploited paradise just waiting to be discovered by the adventurous. The Arthur Lake (to the north) and Walker Lake sectors of the reserve hold some wonderful surprises in store, including great fishing and spectacularly beautiful lakes. Larger than life, Port-Cartier-Sept-Îles Wildlife Reserve is a land of breathtaking landscapes in a natural setting that leaves no one indifferent.
