Highlights

  • We had some beautiful & exceptionally large Northern Pike and Brook Trout caught the past 2014 season. Everyone that came up can’t wait to return this season.
  • The water is clean and cold, so our fish are aggressive throughout the season. You’ll share 150 square miles of unexplored wilderness with our moose, caribou & bear.
  • Lac Perdu is in an area of Quebec that time has bypassed. The water is as clean as it was when Columbus landed; the fishing pressure is virtually non-existent. We’re seizing the opportunity to develop a fishery that is even better than “fishing like it used to be.” The fish are aggressive all season long.
  • Northern Pike: The Northern Pike range from 5 to 45 lbs +. They are generally found feeding in the shallows, but the really big ones go deep to hunt in the cooler water. Over 60 inchers have been caught.
  • Brook Trout: Our Brookies weigh up to 10 lbs. They inhabit the 4 rivers at Perdu. Since they live without predation, they are both plentiful and reckless.

Trip Info

Spend a fantastic week fishing at Lac Perdu. So beautiful & pristine it will take your breath away.

We are located 4 hours from ALMA, in Quebec.

Catch & Release policy
Lac Perdu is in an area of Quebec that time has bypassed. The water is as clean as it was when Columbus landed; the fishing pressure is virtually non-existent. We’re seizing the opportunity to develop a fishery that is even better than “fishing like it used to be.”

First off, let’s be clear on our goal. We don’t want you to return a big one so that someone else can catch him another day. Rather, we want the monsters returned so that they can breed more monsters for future generations. They grew to that size because of the environment (Lac Perdu) and because it’s in their genes. It has taken thousands of years of chance breeding to enable a few to grow to trophy size, and we can’t afford to throw that hard won genetic info away. We have the opportunity to help that process along by releasing the champs, and removing the slackers. We’ve developed a bracket system, which preserves the best of fishing for today and will develop an even greater fishery for our children.

Secondly, everyone should have the opportunity to feast at one of Nature’s grandest banquets: fresh fish from clean, cold water. There is no finer breakfast than Brook trout simply coated with flour and fried over an open campfire. No finer dinner than Pike, filleted and baked just until it flakes. Luckily, the best eating sizes also correspond to our “keeper” bracket.

The easiest place to see bracketing at work is in the highland brook trout fisheries (Caroline & Trois Iles.) You’ll catch georgeous brookies on cast after cast, but notice the large number of smaller ones. They are in intense competition for resources, and cannot all grow to their full potential. You can help to reduce the pressure by removing the keeper size, leaving a better habitat for the rest. Don’t feel guilty about eating them; this isn’t the AuSable; there is no shortage! You are probably the first fisherman that they have ever encountered; this is the wild!

Barbless hooks
We can’t have a successful release program without enforcing a barbless hook standard. Barbless hooks reduce moratlity to a mere fraction of what it would otherwise be. They also challenge you to hone your fishing skills:

your hooks must be sharp, which is a good habit to get into, anyway
you must be alert to a strike, which is, once again, .. a good thing
you must keep tension on your retrieve, once again, something we should always do.
