The Delay River is one of the most productive salmon rivers in Quebec. You can expect an average catch of 2 salmon per day, weighing between 5 and 12 pounds. However, 18-pound-plus catches are not uncommon. You may also catch speckled trout, pike and lake trout. In addition to the great fishing, you will also discover the vast Nunavik countryside.
We look after every detail to ensure that your stay in Nunavik at Delay River Outfitters is an experience that measures up to any major fishing trip in Quebec.

After a full day of fishing filled with stunning views and lunch among friends on the banks of the river, you will return to your cottage, where your guide will carefully prepare your catch for your return home. We will freeze it and provide you with a foam cooler for transport, so that you can share a piece of your dream with family or friends.
Atlantic salmon is found in the Delay River. Salmon from the Koksoak River comes up from Ungava Bay to reproduce where it was spawned. There are great numbers of them in the river, weighing from 5 to 18 pounds. We encourage catch and release, but you may keep up to two salmon per day to a maximum of four during your stay. Until mid-August, you may fish for salmon using a light tackle rod and spinner.
Native speckled trout, also called brook trout and of the same family as Artic char, can also be found in the river. The average catch weighs between 2 and 3 pounds, but some have weighed in at over 5 pounds.
Lake trout can also be found in certain areas of the Delay River and other tributaries. Their numbers are respectable, and they may be fished by light tackle or fly fishing.
Northern pike may also be fished in the river. You will be blown away by the quality and especially the size of some specimens.
