|Fishing In Northern Quebec|
Our fishing camps are located 1000 miles north of Montreal in Nunavik, Quebec. The village of Kuujjuaq (previously called Fort Chimo) is our base of operations during the fishing season from mid-July to early September.
Contrary to travel to other northern fishing destinations, access to our region is simple, quick and civilized. Daily 727 jet transportation from the cosmopolitan city of Montreal is provided on a daily basis to the community of Kuujjuaq in under 2 hours. From Kuujjuaq our chartered Twin Otter wheeled aircraft assures a timely arrival in camp. Under 3 hours after leaving Montreal – you will be on the water fishing!
Arctic Quebec is one of the last un-spoiled regions in the World in terms of fishing opportunities offered to the modern angler. The Ungava Region is blessed with wide open unpopulated areas with countless rivers and lakes – with most that have never seen a fly or a lure. Northern Quebec is home to the Atlantic salmon, brook trout and lake trout as well as the most famous of the northern species - the Arctic char. We operate three different fishing camps each with their own particular attraction.
Our Helen’s Falls Camp located on the George River is a dedicated Atlantic Salmon Lodge that provides the ideal location for the ardent fly fisherman looking to challenge the mighty Salmon on a fly. The camp provides superb accommodations, meals and services in one of the most productive Salmon camps in North America. While the Salmon are the main attraction – opportunity to fish for Arctic char and brook trout is possible during a visit to the camp.
Lake Ikirtuuq, on the other hand is oriented towards the adventurer who is looking to explore new waters and experience brook trout fishing at its best. Miles and miles of river with countless pools are just begging to be fished. Landlocked Salmon, Arctic Char and Lake Char are also available during your stay.
North Camp, located on the Pilodeau River is home to the Arctic Char. Fish of 8 to 15 lbs. or more start their upriver migration in mid-August. These fish are sleek and powerful when they enter the river. While spin fishing is the preferred method to fish – some of our regulars prefer to challenge the char on a fly rod.
We limit the number of guests at camp to a maximum of 8 fishermen at anyone time to be able to provide you with a true fishing adventure. Expect excellent home style meals, great guides and equipment and no crowds, promise!
