The Tunulic is one of these Arctic Quebec rivers where trout will die of old age without ever having seen a fly or a lure. The numerous interconnected lakes and streams make the Tunulic extremely productive for native brook trout. By floatplane and motorized boat, you get access to a huge territory where some areas have never been fished. Trouts are so abundant on the Tunulic that all fly fishing techniques are effective. You only have to pick the fly of your choice to capture these magnificent wild fish.
