The Rivière Noire is calm, deep at places, dotted with small rapids and offers a wide range of opportunities in which to outwit the vigorous trout. More than 30 pools are set up and stocked each year, much to the delight of fishing enthusiasts. The parc régional des Grandes-Coulées is an ideal place to introduce young people to fishing.
Access to the fishing pools is free. However, fishermen must have a permit and respect the limit of 5 fish per permit.
