In search of action, we hit the road to Mauricie for a pike and lake trout fishing excursion. We packed the Hooké Van with big flies, steel leaders and solid rods before taking off for Lake Oscar Outfitters. When we arrived, we met Donald Farrar. «Everything in yellow is a good spot » he told us while highlighting here and there on a map. And that’s how we ended up following a big fat yellow line along the grassy bays of the Flamand River and the deep pools of lake Oscar in search of mean pikes and voracious lake trout.

LAKE trout fishing
It was mid-July and the Pike fishing was really hard so we decided to go for something new, and try to catch some Lake trout on the fly. We’d been told by many that it wouldn’t be easy to catch a Laker on a fly at this time of the year. Still, we set up our rods with full sink lines and big streamer flies and hoped for the best. We were told the Lakers would be in deep water, so our approach was to let our flies sink deep down and strip them up slowly. To our own surprise, this technique ended up working really well and we had an amazing day!
A fly fishing adventure in Mauricie
Located between Quebec’s two main cities, Montreal and Quebec City, the Mauricie region is a major destination for outdoors enthusiasts and fly fishers. Its many lakes and rivers are valued for the diversity and quantity of fish they host as well as for the unmistakable sceneries they provide.
