To preserve this outstanding fishery, La Réserve Beauchêne pioneered catch-and-release fishing in Quebec.
Under our limited harvest-slot limit program, developed with the help of our Fishing Advisory Board, guests may keep good pan-size fish…for that famous Canadian classic, the shore-lunch (fire regulations permitting), or to eat in camp,and a trophy (over a specified size) of each species to take home.
Unless an over-populated lake is being “fished down” deliberately, all other fish are returned to the water, keeping up the breeding stock and helping to explain the unusually high proportion of big fish.
A full copy of our rules will be sent to you with your reservation confirmation.
You should know…
- Natural bait, alive or dead, is not permitted in our naturally reproducing Brook Trout lakes.
- Guests are asked to squeeze down all barbs and to replace treble hooks with single hooks wherever possible.
- Downriggers are prohibited
- And lastly, we hate to see any bass killed, except when a lake needs to be fished down.
Keep only enough for your next meal in camp.
All fish killed must be reported to lodge or camp ground
