Top 6 Fishing Lodges In Quebec, Canada - Updated 2023

| 4 min read

The predominantly French-speaking province of Quebec is a prime destination for anglers. The province has varying topography and 12 percent of its surface is occupied by freshwater lakes and rivers. Most of the area is cold and humid but with the right gear, you will find Quebec’s fishing grounds quite impressive. Centre des Données sur le Patrimoine Naturel du Québec (CPDNQ) or Data Centre on Natural Heritage of Quebec, in cooperation with The Wildlife Foundation of Quebec, are working hand-in-hand to preserve and protect habitats and ecosystems for future generations. You can skip the usual bed and breakfasts and historic hotels. Now is the best time to book a fishing weekend in one of the top fishing lodges in Quebec, Canada.

4. Cozy cottage with a cove and catering service (from USD 112)

Superhost Felicitas is proud her cottage in Guérin. The view from the window is a perfect sampling of the stunning lakes of Témiscamingue Regional County Municipality.

Amenities include a barbecue grill and a wood-burning stove. All the modern comforts of a home away from home await you, plus a hot tub which you probably did not expect. Felicitas offers homemade lunches if you want to spend the day hiking, or plan to go to the old Fort, or perhaps an old mine a distance off. Let her know in advance!

6. Spacious lodging amid forest and lake

Blue Sky Lodge in Vals-des-Monts is a popular walleye fishing lodge in Quebec. It has free parking, a full wraparound deck, an outdoor fire pit, and direct access to Lac St. Pierre. The lake is an expanded portion of the St. Lawrence River and is a popular fishing spot for most of the year. In no time, you’ll hook smallmouth bass and northern pike. It is also a great place to catch and release walleye.

The cottage can accommodate as many as six guests in three bedrooms. You may add more to your party if everyone is willing to share the available space. Aside from essential amenities for a comfortable weekend trip, this lodge has a landing dock as well. If you’re driving from Ottawa, it should take you about 40 minutes to reach the lodge. Watch out for the cities of Sorel-Tracy and Trois-Rivières. They should serve as your landmarks. When fishing at Lac St. Pierre look for small ponds where trout may be lurking. If the rest of the family has other things in mind, then Superhost Eric recommends a forest walk at the back of the property.
