Français: Ce grand lac de retenue a des allures de Grand Nord canadien, avec ses reliefs forestiers et ses nombreuses anses. Entouré de reliefs forestiers, le lac de Pierre-percée ressemble à un grand lac nordique. Les vieilles forêts qui forment ses bords accueillent des espèces telles que le pic noir ou la mésange noire, tandis que les grandes étendues d'eau accueillent de nombreux oiseaux d'eau attirés par la quiétude et l'abondance de nourriture.
