A river to discover

The Nouvelle

Located on the Gaspé Peninsula, one of the most beautiful regions of Québec, the Nouvelle River offers anglers the opportunity to indulge in their favourite pastime in a glorious setting. Visitors will find sparkling crystalline waters that flows from the high peaks of th Chic-Choc Mountains down to the Chaleur Bay, near the Municipality of Nouvelle. Fishing on the Nouvelle gives you the chance to catch the king of all fish, the Atlantic salmon, as well as impressive giant sea run trouts! Moreover, most of the time, you will be the only angler around. Alone in this wild, yet easily accessible oasis of nature.

Unlike many other rivers, water remains cool during the whole season and fishind success increase with time. Its ever cold and turquoise water, unless sudden flood, is perfect habitat for salmon and trout from the opening to the end of the fishing season!

River map

The Nouvelle River is divided into six fishing Sectors (A to F), covering almost 80 km of river. Sector C is limited to six rods per day, whereas the remaining sectors are open-access, so there is no need to book early to have the opportunity to fish in their superb crystalline water.

It is possible to fish both salmon and sea trout in Sectors A to D, while Sectors E and F are home to sea trout only.
