Fly Fishing is highly recommended for Brook Trout, Northern Pike because of the tremendous action these hardy freshwater fish provide. Bait and lure fishing is also quite productive.
Plentiful freshwater species include:
- Northern Pike (Brochet du Nord): We cater to fly fishermen who want to cast big streamers and terrestrials in small bays and inlets around the Reservoir. Each guide is familiarized with this ferocious game fish's feeding habits. Will scare the heck out of you when it grabs a 3/0 mouse fly 10 feet in front of you with such a force and ferocity that you will remember this champion of game fish for the rest of your life - Guaranteed.
Brook Trout (Mouchete) - this fish is the most beautiful of all freshwater fish in Quebec. In late August these beauties change to their spawning colors, the big males with their hook type and bright orange bellies will impress the pure Brook trout fanatic. The average Brook trout is 1 to 2 pounds with the occasional 5 to 8 pounder in some remote lakes and rivers. Every type of Fly fishing from dry to wet is possible to lure this most beautiful of all freshwater species.
- Lake Whitefish - local fishermen usually ignore this species, but it offers its share of action. Its tiny fragile mouth demands a delicate hook setting with a #10 or smaller fly, but your drag better be at a minimum because these fish can weigh up to 15 pounds. Freshwater Lake Whitefish are a plentiful and good-eating species despite local biases.
Fishing season runs from May 15 to September 15, with the exception of Northern Pike which may be fished year round.
