Réserve faunique du Saint-Maurice

Wildlife reserve Region : Mauricie City : Trois-Rives

The Mauricie! A land of pioneers, log drivers and famous coureurs de bois, this region has long been renowned for its wide open spaces. Located in the populous center of southern Québec, Saint-Maurice Wildlife Reserve shares this reputation. This vast expanse of wilderness is dotted with numerous lakes and rivers and is home to a wide variety of fish and animals. This region was the preserve of private hunting and fishing clubs from 1896 until the creation of Saint-Maurice Wildlife Reserve by order in council in 1963. It received official wildlife reserve status in 1979.Although not the largest reserve in the network, Saint-Maurice Wildlife Reserve is undoubtedly one of the most charming. Lake and speckled trout abound in the reserve's numerous lakes and waterways. In fact, the exceptional quality of the reserve's sport fishing is a secret many anglers would rather keep to themselves. Hiking trails, dogsledding, canoe-camping on Soucis and Tousignant lakes and breathtaking landscapes are among the other attractions for nature lovers in search of unspoiled wilderness. Welcome to the majestic valley of the Saint-Maurice River, traditional homeland of the Tête-de-Boule Indians! ©Société des établissements de plein air du Québec
