Trinité River ATLANTIC SALMON A great Québec North Shore River



The main attraction on the Trinité river is by no doubt it's Atlantic Salmon run, this great fish has always manages to seduce fly fisherman from all aver the world. Today the Trinité attracts thousand of anglers who are looking for the ultimate angling challenge and the King of sportfish is always there to surprise you with its fast runs and acrobatic leaps.



TRINITÉ RIVER HISTORY

Historically, Since the early 1930's the St-Laurence Paper Ltée company had exclusive rights to the Grande Trinité River and Petite Trinité River until the late 60's when they sold they right the the territory to DOMTAR.




In Mai 1976 DOMTAR ended a 50 year exclusive right's to the territory and finally gave away it's right's after countless negotiation and protestation from the Baie-Trinité citizens who wanted more participation in the management of it's local salmon rivers resources and it's fauna The MTCP transferred all properties, installations ans exclusives rights to the newly formed Société d'Aménagement de Baie-Trinité inc. This territory exclusive rights transfer was a Québec fist, it paved the way to many other Québec territory to be transferred to local communities. In 1978 a 356 square kilometer wildlife and fishing reserved was created which merged both Grande Trinité River and Petite Trinité River in the same management reserve



After ward this territory was registered as a ZEC (CONTROLLED EXPLOITATION ZONE), then finally in 1982 based on it's geographical location the Trinité River was named the north shore index river, having sush a classification this meant all other north shore rivers would be compared to the Trinité river to better evaluate its health. Biologist from the MRNF now would have the Trinité river fish way and could use its resource as a tool for research to better understand the atlantic salmon. This fish way helps the SABT in better evaluating its salmon and sea run brook trout runs.




The Trinité River PRESIDENTS Throughout history : Jacques Landry, Louis C. Roussy, Richard Dion, Georges Gagnon, Denis Lejeune.

Lots of salmon anglers swear by the Trinité River atlantic salmon run, visiting the region year after year as if they had to come honour this great river for the numerous emotions that it had given them the previous years. Situated 95 km East from the town of Baie-Comeau. The Trinité River runs a distance of 74 kilometers (46 miles) to the town of Baie-Trinité, where it empties into the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Managed by ZEC Trinité, the stream is comprised of 67 pools divided in two sectors: one provides unlimited access, while the other limits the number of rods. Wade fishing is the rule on this river, which features small to medium-sized pools. Route 138 provides access to all of sector 1 and parts of sector 2 (11 kilometers, or 7 miles). Access to the upper reaches of sector 2 to its limit at Mile 22 bridge is provided by a dirt road that runs along the river. River levels can change abruptly following a heavy rain, but rarely enough to stop the fishing.



A good 7 to 9 weight fly rod matched with a good strong fly reel filled with backing and a dry fly line is all you will need to test your angling skills against salmo salar. Popular flies for this river are rusty rat, whale river rat, grey rat. lanctot. blue charm. jock scott, moisie Les mouches noyées les plus populaires sont les Rusty rat, Whale river rat, Blue charm, Lanctot, Jock Scott, Moisie, monroe killer, black ghost. For dry flies you will need various bombers, bugs, green machine, black wulff, white wulff and madam x.

What a superb summary of the river and the current situation. Thank you. If anyone would like to fish the Trinité are they able to contact you for advice, guiding etc? Or is there an outfitter you suggest they go to?

Wow, absolutely looks a wonderful place to fish, let alone just be there.
Maybe one day, when my friends and I get some freedom from the family etc.
