A rod specially designed to cast an artificial fly (built to resemble various insects) on the water’s surface. The fish bite either because they think it might be food or because the lure agitates them. This is especially true of Atlantic salmon, for which the fly-fishing technique is mandatory (with some exceptions). Fly fishing can be practised from a boat or the shore of any waterway, and for most species.
Day fishing is the perfect option for those wishing to enjoy a little angling. From sunup to sundown, make the most of the many lakes and services at your disposal for sport fishing. After that, you just need to choose your spot and cast away!
A seasoned professional will take you to the best fishing spots to catch your favourite species. Besides their in-depth knowledge of the terrain, professional fishing guides will handle cleaning and storing your catches. You can also ask your guide to prepare a shore lunch, where your catch is cooked directly on-site.
Ice fishing is enjoyed in winter with tip-ups installed in holes on frozen lakes. Not a fan of the cold? Heated shelters are available nearby so you can stay warm while keeping a close eye on your line. Requiring little equipment, it’s the perfect activity to introduce family or friends to the joys of fishing.
At some outfitters, you can continue to enjoy fishing right up to the end of October. The fish are stocking up nutrition for winter then and less selective about their food, which can make for some excellent fishing! There’s also the spectacular fall colours to enjoy and cooler temperatures—plus, no more mosquitoes! The perfect conditions for a great getaway.
