ⓘ Cabonga Reservoir

The Cabonga Reservoir is a man-made lake in central Quebec, Canada, with a total surface area of 677 square kilometres and a net area of 484 square kilometres. It is located on the boundary between the unorganized territories of Lac-Pythonga and Reservoir-Dozois, and fully within the La Verendrye Wildlife Reserve. The First Nations reserve of Rapide Lake is on its western shores.

Its name comes from the Algonquin kakibonga means "completely blocked by sand."

The reservoir has 2 outlets: in Roda de Ter, the river flows South-East, which is a tributary of reservoir Baskatong and Gatineau river, and the outflow to the North-West flows directly on to the barrier lake, which is part of the Ottawa river system. Both flows are controlled by dams to regulate the flow on these rivers.

Many fishing magazines and websites consider the Cabonga reservoir is one of North Americas top 20 walleye and pike waters. And outdoor Canada magazine includes it among its "simply the best" hot spots for lake trout Fishing.
