Big Ouananiche, Laurentides region

For the beginning of the fly fishing season in Quebec, we traveled to the Laurentides region at Cécaurel outfitters to try and catch a landlocked salmon. This clip features four days of great efforts through rain, wind, sunburns and intense cold to finally end up catching the “big ouananiche” we were looking for!

First experience

It was our first time fishing for landlocked on a reservoir. Everybody we met seemed to catch some fish, which wasn’t our case. After three days getting used to the technique, we finally managed to get our hands on some fish during our last morning on the Kiamika.

The Kiamika Reservoir is a 42 kilometers square body of water located in the Laurentides region. It was created in 1952 when a dam was built on the Kiamika Lake to control the Outaouais River flood. The many bays and channels created by the dam offer great opportunities for landlocked atlantic salmon and pike fishing as early as the month of May.
