June – November
This veteran guide has been targeting muskies since the early 1990’s. His home waters of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence Rivers in Quebec offer some of the best muskie fishing in North America. The great big push from the mighty St Lawrence offers a multitude of varying ecosystems along its travels to salt water. Its’ shades of color and structure transition from region to region offering clarities of twenty-four feet to visibilities of less than three. Rock structures and shoals with vast weed flats and sand bars offer a wide variety of prime habitat and forage. The neighboring Ottawa River stretches 120 miles and offers a variety of livable habitat. Vegetation is diverse and structure is abundant, offering miles of break lines to deep gorges. Being centrally located allows you to fish either river depending on the conditions and bite. Often referred to as the “fish of a thousand casts”, muskie fishing requires patience and persistence. Therefore we recommend booking at least three or more days. A typical day can yield 1-3 plus fish including some real trophies. The summer months offer casting opportunities while the months of September – November is mostly trolling. You’ll fish from a comfortable Tracker Targa 195 (19 ft.) with a 150 and electric trolling motor with all tackle provided. Lodging is provided at the outfitter’s home. A comfortable two-bedroom apartment with all food (cook on your own) is included.
