The vast lands of the Essipit Innu cover over 385 km2 and are known as one of the best places for sport fishing in the Côte-Nord region. They include over 125 natural lakes for good fishing throughout the season, even in July and August. The water of these elevated lakes remains cold late into the season—to the great delight of anglers of all ages.

Two outfitters offer day fishing excursions. The Domaine du Lac Bernier and Club Claire. Take advantage of the three-kilometer-long lake at the Domaine du Lac Bernier outfitter or exclusive access at the Club Claire outfitter. Essipit outfitters are sure to provide an exhilarating experience!
