Lake trout throughout the territory!
Spacer
Many of the Upper-Gatineau's 3 000 lakes and rivers are stocked with Lake trout, which is considered by most as the mascot species of our region.

Lake trout is part of the salmon family (char) that prefers to live in deep fresh water. Mature individuals are known to weigh as much as 25ákilos (55ápounds).

Lake trout fishing is particularly popular in the cold water of early Spring, which allows us to capture them in shallow waters. When the lake water warms up in late June, the fish prefer the deeper and colder parts of the lake. This is when heavy tackle, sonar and downriggers are a must to obtain success.

Trout meat proves to be a healthy and great tasting meal while the catch itself is considered a memorable trophy by many anglers.

Just minutes from the Mijocama Outfitter, there are dozens of lakes with enviable Lake trout populations including the ever popular Thirty-One-Miles and Pemichangan lakes.

Where you find Lake trout, you will also find Lake whitefish.

Although you can fish them all year, the ideal seasons to catch them are in the Winter and Spring when the top and bottom waters are equally cold. In the Summer, the lake Whitefish prefers to be a discreet inhabitant of the deep parts of the lakes.

Northern pike

Perfect for great meals...

For those who are not familiar with this species, the Northern pike is often called the "fresh-water tiger" mostly because of his aggressive and voracious behavior.

During the Summer and in the Winter, it is possible to catch some Northern pikes that measure up to a meter (three feet) long or more!

  
  
  
Bass
Spacer
The "Outaouais" region is considered as a paradise in our province for both Small and Big mouth bass fishing. The Upper-Gatineau, one of its sub-regions, has numerous lakes that offer above average bass populations.

Moreover, in certain lakes such as the Giles lake, the Big mouth bass pullulates which ensures a continuously increasing population and a better success rate for anglers. It is mostly a favorite amongst big sensations enthusiasts who prefer the practice of "catch and release".

   Nice size fish.
  
Bass is a fish full of energy.
A reputable fighter!

When the warm temperature reduces the activities of many species, the bass remains very energetic even during extremely hot summer days. His spirit of extreme combativeness is even greater than Northern pike, and represents a true challenge for the fly-fishing enthusiast.
  
  
  
Fishing, a family activity!

Finally, children will surely have lots of fun capturing yellow perch, rock bass, sunfish, catfish and occasionally a "burbot" (fresh-water cod).
Every member of the family likes fishing.
