Réserve faunique Assinica is definitely the northernmost and wildest of all the wildlife reserves in the network. It's in the Nord-du-Québec region on the Baie-James territory. It's cut through by a river, the impetuous Broadback, and has many lakes. Because it lies within a large beaver reserve, beaver hunting is reserved for Aboriginal people, as is fishing for some fish species like whitefish and sturgeon.
The lakes Cachisca, Comencho, and Opataca are the most popular ones for walleye fishing. There is a primitive campground in an open area by Lac Cachisca. Elsewhere, primitive camping is permitted on the road right-of-way. No services. See the Fishing-Camping package for more details
