Flashback to 1986

François Jinchereau, co-owner of Lac Justone Outfitter, has been around this amazing landscape near Fermont, Quebec for many years! Here’s a photo of him dating back to 1986, with 75 marten furs strung over his ultralight plane on floats/skis used to move around his trapping line.

Archeological find at Facolli Fall

If you have been on a fishing trip at Facolli Fall in the past, you certainly know Jean-Louis as he’s always on site helping customers and managing the facilities. What you probably didn’t know about him is that Jean-Louis found a pretty amazing artifact while working on the 4-wheelers trail many years ago.

Thank you for a great 2021 fishing season

We would like to thank all of our clients for the 2021 fishing season, at Facolli Fall, Trophy Lake and Hasté. Large catches were numerous and the catch-and-release practice will allow us to continue to offer you memorable fishing experiences next season and in the years to come.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you again next summer,

Exceptional landlocked salmon fishing at Facolli


We have openings for an exceptional landlocked salmon fishing period in June, which is highly coveted and normally never available because it is booked several years ahead!!

Hurry if you want to take this opportunity for a unique fishing experience. We are offering our American plan at Facolli for only three groups of 4 people (5 night stays) from mid-June. The cost is $2,495 plus taxes per person. Contact us through our website at http://lacjustone.com/en/info-request/ for all the details and to book your group now.

Our 2021 fishing season is opening soon!

With the Covid-19 vaccination campaigns continuing to reach new heights, the pandemic is increasingly under control and summer activities appear to be on track to unfold almost as normal this summer. At the Lac Justone Outfitter, we are always on the lookout for advice from Quebec and Canada regarding the pandemic and health measures.

We already have several bookings for our three fishing sites and regularly receive requests for information from fishermen who have been fishing with us in the past or who are looking to have this unique experience for the first time.

We still have a few slots available, mostly in the month of July. Please contact us for more details.

We look forward to welcoming you soon! 🙂

A fishing environment worth preserving!

During the summer of 2019 (pre Covid-19), a group of avid fly fishermen who are repeat clients at Facolli Fall did a special experiment. This group believes in preserving the quality of fishing and strictly follows a catch-and-release approach to support their belief. A member of the group, Brian Farm, PhD Biology, took a scale sample from a 12 lb ouananiche which he then released unharmed.

Although reading dish scales is a very specialized skill, Brian later put that scale under a microscope (see photo) and attempted to identify the growth bands. The six lines “on top” are pretty clear but there are four additional lines below (indicated by a “?”) which may or may not indicate a growth year. Therefore, in Brian’s opinion, it’s likely this fish is at least 8 years old, and could be anywhere from 6 to 11 (if you count the outer edge – the current year’s growth, as an additional year). Again, someone with more experience aging salmonids from scales may provide a more accurate estimate but this information is still very interesting. At 8 years old, this would indicate a very good growth rate of about 1 ½ pounds per year. The habitat and available food at Facolli Fall must be good for them! We see more and bigger salmon in the future 🙂

Facolli now has Internet access

The Facolli site is now connected to the Internet via an XplorNet satellite link, and complimentary Wifi Internet access is offered to our clients. The signal is the strongest inside the main lodge but is still acceptable from the guests’ cabins. Bandwidth is quite suitable for email and connecting to your favorite social network (online gamers please abstain). We even tested Skype and Google Meet video connections with good results.

If your mobile phone provider supports the “Wifi Calling” function, you can use your mobile phone to make and receive calls as you normally would with cellular coverage, at no extra charges. But please don’t get distracted from your main purpose… an outstanding fishing experience 🙂
