Réserve faunique de Portneuf

Shaped and shaded by the Laurentians, Portneuf Wildlife Reserve lies between Québec City, Trois Rivières and La Tuque. Reserve lands were once part of the seigneury ceded to Jacques Le Neuf de la Potherie, who is said to have added "Port" to his name. The reserve was created in 1968 to "conserve the wildlife and offer hunting and fishing grounds as well as wholesome recreational opportunities." Formerly the preserve of private clubs for the rich, today it is enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts from all walks of life.
Here, peaks and valleys unfurl in breathtaking succession, falls cascade tumultuously, streams meander peacefully. Criss-crossing the countryside are picturesque roadways leading to activities of all sorts. The untold lakes and rivers are home to numerous species of fish, including speckled trout, lake trout, Arctic char and maskinongé. Reserve forests are also home to an abundance of animal life and a flurry of bird species. Whether you're a sport hunting or fishing enthusiast, a devotee of outdoor pursuits or a lover of nature, you'll be charmed and delighted by the natural beauty of this remarkable land.
