Fishing

One word says it all, DIVERSITY!

Familypics22Diversity, tranquility and an abundance of fish sums up the fishing experience on lac Mer Bleue.

With a total of 18 private cottages on our lake of 5 km’s by 2 km’s, you will regularly find yourself being the only boat on the lake. Thanks to our Exclusive Rights Outfitting lease with the Quebec government, we control the access to our territory allowing us to have our own fishery management plan. Most renowned for our trophy smallmouth bass, we also have very healthy populations of northern pike, largemouth bass, lake trout and whitefish.

We have made many strides towards re-establishing our walleye population by rehabilitating the main spawning bed located in the creek between lacs Mer Bleue and Lacroix and have also begun a supplemental stocking program in 2014. We will continue to stock lac Mer Bleue keeping the possession limit at zero until a sustainable walleye fishery is realized. We hope to be open for walleye fishing in the spring of 2018!

Familypics19Lac Mer Bleue is almost 300 feet deep with several islands, rock shoals, sandy back bays and submerged weedbeds. There is habitat and structure galore to keep any angler busy!

If looking for something a little more adventurous, we also have boats on 3 of our remote back lakes. We keep these lakes as catch and release only limiting one boat on each lake. For 20 lb. Pike and 5-6lb. Smallmouth bass…. you may want to make the hike in!

Families with children will enjoy the numerous panfish and bass that can be caught by simply casting a worm on a hook and bobber from either the main dock or shoreline in front of each cottage. Kids will definately catch fish on lacs Mer Bleue and Lacroix!

 

General expectations? A reasonable fisherman should expect to catch LOTS of bass averaging 2 to 2.5 pounds. Several 5lb. Smallmouth are caught each year with most being released. Lake trout are  the second most fished for species in the lake. We have a minimum size restriction of 50 cm’s for the lakers with the average sized trout being 3-5 lb’s. Northern pike numbers have been on the rise in the past few years with the average size being 5-7lb’s and several over 12 lb’s every year. The whitefish are rarely targeted as are the walleye but the odd one of each species are caught while fishing for bass, pike or lake trout.

The combination of scenery, 4 star accommodations, quality of fishing and solitude at only 1.5 hours north of Ottawa can’t be matched!

And once again we shift gears from bear to moose camp prep. I visited our two remote northern camps in zone 13 and the sign was promising! Saw one bull on the way in to camp and tracks everywhere. Salt licks are freshened up, trail cams set and one of the two camps are 95% ready to go. Two more trips over the summer and we'll be in good shape come fall! ... See MoreSee Less
