After my very unsuccessful trip to Labrador last year we are heading to Quebec this time. We will be in the Duplessis & Manicouagan Regions. Just wondering if anyone on here has experience fishing these regions and would you care to share some tips and locations for landing the bigguns.

Thanks.

i fished Manic V and the rivers/streams that come down from it, along the labradour hwy. there were surprisingly few spots to fish along the hwy, and the opposite, to many places to fish manic v. i caught a couple nice brookies in the streams, my nephew caught 3 good pike on manic v but i found the fishing slow there - it's such a big piece of water, and you can only fish so much at a time, we needed another year or two to get the feel for it, it's that big!!!

not much help with where you are going, but i would do some research. getting licensed was so easy! we asked a cop and he took us right over to the nearest spot to buy one...across the street! lol. we also saw whales on the way there and back. memorable trip!

thanks, I'm finding it hard to find any info on fishing in Quebec tho. All I end up finding online are lodges or guides that want to charge me an arm and a leg. Can't find any real info on much else.

ya so this fishing trip was about as successful as last years. This time it was my father with a blown out disk in his back and the weather was pretty extreme. Only caught a few brookies and a couple small Pike. The only spot we managed to get at Manicuagan Lake was very shallow with lots of debris to get caught up in. Most of the nice brooks and even the rivers were too far overgrown to get at. Won't make this trip again unless we have a boat. We heard they were taking some spectacular trout out of the lakes.

We have fished the Manicuagan a few times and it is a massive piece of water,we have fished the whole way around small islands that would be 40 kms to get around.When you hit it at the right time and with alittle luck there is great fishing.

Really interested in making a trip to Manic this year, but not sure at all about licenses or limitations on where you can fish as they appear to have these fishing clubs that you need to get a pass from - does anyone know if it is as simple as just buying an out of province license (adhering to species seasons and catch limits of course).

Tks
