We mandate fly fishing only in fast water sections and catch-and-release of all but a few fish for a special meal while on site. Fly fishing is the most productive, sporting and exhilarating way to connect with brook trout and salmon. Your co-operation will help ensure that this special trout and salmon fishery remains at an outstanding high level for years to come! Click here to learn more about catch-and-release.
Outline of your Fishing Trip
Our base of operations is the town of Fermont in Northern Quebec which is accessible by road via highway 389. The town is also reachable via commercial flights to the airport of Wabush (YWK) located 20 miles/33 kms from Fermont. We recommend a flex fare in case of a weather delay on the return floatplane trip. Click here to learn more about a typical schedule for your fishing trip.
This type of fishing trip requires at least one experienced person per group. You will stay in a cabin with all of the comforts of home and will have reliable outboard motor boats at your disposal, but it is self-guided (unless you have added the services of a guide to your package). These are very large lakes interspersed with medium flowing rapids that must be navigated with care.
