The ZEC Trinité In 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.
