6 Of us traveled into Quebec in June of this year to stay for a few days. I have not been to this lake in 10 years but have thought about it numerous times since last being there. I was very excited to take my son on his first "real" fishing trip. The lake we went to is known for its Walleye and Lake Trout. We mainly target Walleye and occasionally Northern Pike during mid afternoon. Following are some pictures from the trip and I hope to somehow share some of the fun and beauty the place offers.. Also I do not know if I have heard/seen anything as beautiful as a Loon singing on a glass surfaced lake at dusk..

Our cabin


The boys with a nice haul one evening.


The beautiful screened in porch


My biggest fresh water fish to date. 30 inch 15lb Lake trout.. Somehow caught on 6 lb test and a Berkley Trout Dough Rod... 15 minutes to land it!


My son ended up getting a big Lake trout on also, however I ended up missing it with the net so it dove to the bottom of the lake.. He fought it for 15-20 minutes before eventually losing it... Luckily my brother in law caught one in the same exact spot the next day and we were able to convince him that it was the same one.. Here they are with their fish!

I love it up North.. Between fishing trips to Quebec, Bear hunting in Maine , and Snowboarding in Vermont I can't think of a better place to be... Well....Maybe the Pacific Northwest haha.

Every time I see a lake trout, I think back to the very first caribou hunt I ever went on. It was Northern Quebec in 1995. The guide who we had in camp had his girlfriend up for two weeks with him.
We didn't even ask her to do it, but she voluntarily cooked for the entire group. She made "trout chowder" for us a couple times. It was a clam chowder recipe with the lake trout substituted. To this day, it is probably the tastiest thing I have ever eaten. What I wouldn't give for a bowl of that!!!!
We all got two caribou on that trip, had some fantastic fishing and ate well!!! We took pretty good care of her that week for what she did for us.

But boy, throw in some walleyes like you caught and it could be a very fine week indeed.

It is in the Zec Dumoine. There is no outfitter, you just buy a permit to enter and rent boats and the cabin off of the government. It is pretty remote, but we did see a few other boats this trip.

Luckily I just found out that we are heading back next year! My son already wants to draw a map and pin point all of the walleye hotspots... I am not sure who is more excited!
