TRIP INTO THE WILDS
– Immense wilderness region of lakes and rivers
– Exceptional fishing in little known rivers
– Pristine glacial waters
– Savouring the day’s catch cooked over a wood-burning fire
Day 1: Montreal – Kuujjuaq – Rapid Lake Flight Upon arrival at Rapid Lake, the manager-owner will welcome you with a cocktail, followed by the emission of fishing licenses and a presentation of your upcoming itinerary. The afternoon is free for fishing. Dinner and overnight stay at the Lodge.
Day 2 and 3: Brook trout fishing. Begin your fishing trip by fishing brook trout in the most bountiful fisheries of the river. You will appreciate the beauty of the Tunulic River with its rapids, pools and waterfalls where trout live, some of which have never seen flies. Streamer fishing is very effective but it is the fishing with the mouse which will give you the most pleasure. Overnight stay at the Lodge.
Day 4: Fly out fishing excursion – lake trout fishing. The day starts with a short flight over the spectacular subarctic tundra. En route we will stop on different unnamed rivers to fish for lake trout. You will also fish for brook trout and landlocked arctic char. For the evening meal, try some of your day’s catch. Overnight stay at the Lodge.
Days 5 and 6: Fly out fishing excursion – arctic char. During the next two days we fly out to fish for arctic char on the East coast of Ungava. En route we fly over a landscape of fjords, mountains, oceans and icebergs. Once we have reached our destination we fish for the migratory arctic chars. In certain periods it is also possible to fish for the big red chars. Overnight stay at the lodge.
Day 7: Return trip. Lunch at the Lodge.
