Fishing

With over 2000 kilometres of shoreline, Lac Kipawa has some of the best fishing in Quebec.

It is well known for its excellent walleye, lake trout, and northern pike fishing. You don’t have to travel far from your cabin to catch your limit! We outfit every group of 2 to 3 people with an aluminium boat that has swivel seats, a 15-20 hp motor, and a fish finder. Not only will you be catching your supper quickly, but you will also be doing it in comfort. Don’t worry about picking up fishing licences, worms, leaches, or ice – we have all of that here, for your added convenience!

lake trout

 

Lake trout

Lake Trout or “Lakers” are a blast to catch. They tend to run like a salmon so hold on tight and reel em in! In the spring the Lakers can be found near the surface, the best method to catch them is flat lining while trolling. But when the water warms up get your lead core line or down riggers ready because the Lakers move down into the deeper/colder water.

Lakers are great on the BBQ or baked in the oven.

Northern Pike

Northern Pike are well known for their fierce attacks on a lure. Lake Kipawa is a deep lake but lurking in the back bays are some huge Northerns waiting for a passing meal. You can also catch Pike in deeper water while trolling with Rapalas. Around Alwaki Lodge there are several small pot hole lakes loaded with pike. So take you can take an after noon, go for a hike and fill the boat.
