Manawan is a reserve on Lake Kempt’s shore, a gorgeous body of water that makes up an important part of the Atikamekw heritage and lifeways. Traditionally the lake has been an important source of food and transportation, with the water allowing the larger game to be moved by canoe. At the same time, the bountiful sturgeon, pike, big walleye, trout, and whitefish provide an important food source for the Atikamekw people.
Special guides for fishing trips will take you to the best spots on the 65 km lake, ensuring you get the best experience possible! Certified guides can be booked for canoe trips of 2-15 days, in which you will be able to experience the incredible sights and scenery that the land has to offer, including beaver dams and other flora and fauna.
