Gone fishing.....
« on: August 12, 2013, 10:08:56 AM »

  I went north for a few days...  well a week of fishing on lake Capimitchigama it's quite a long lake and a good ride out there. Give or take 8 hours from here and then there's a 55 minute boat ride in a grew with a 55 johnson pushing it to get to the camp.
   Walley, Pike and grey trout are occupents of the lake. Took a few pics getting there, of course batteries went dead before we caught any fish...... :-\
 
  The fishfinder ....

 

  

  A few shots of the lake and surroundings.....

 

 

  A forest of White spruce, Black spruce, white birch and Poplar.

 

 

 I could be left out there from sun up to sun down, ( As long as I have something to eat... ;D  )

 

 

 

 

 We did catch some fish and we did do some work around the camp, but being on the lake being rocked by the waves is about as relaxing as it gets. ( Blueberries where ripe and for the takin', and boy did I do some takin' )  :)

Isawlogs,
Nice pics.
Sounds like a great time and very relaxing.
My son and a couple of friends travel to QUE (LaVerendrye) reserve to fish.
Haven't made it yet this year, but probably will go the last weekend the park is open.
We thoroughly enjoy our trips to French Canada and have found the folks to be friendly and helpful.
Fishing is fishing and we sometimes do very well and sometimes not.
Where in Que is this lake located?
I would like to look for it on Google earth

That's some pretty country. That was a nice school down there in 70' of water.

Pete.. Here's a long link to a google map page that should bring up the lake .



   If not copy this        lac capimitchigama quebec canada    and search google and the lac should come up.  What arrangements do you take to go fishing, camping or out of an outfitter ?

  Do you go through Montreal or Ottawa to get there ?

  We went through part of Lavrendrie park going there, first right from the 117N past Le Domaine ( registrating place to go fishing in the park) and go 108 kilometers from there on the Clova road.

  Sorry , just aint no pics of fish..... :-\  batterries went caputt   :-\ 
 We where a day late coming out of there, had some wind and rain that made the lake have white caps, that I really did not need to go find out just how big they where.  ;)  There is no fun having to ride out in three foot waves, I sure don't need to do that anymore.  :)

 Mon Ami', where is your sense of adventure ??  ;D ;D
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Looks like a great spot. I'm sure the fishing was good. If not, the beverages anyway.  ;D I bet there are some hot spot in that lake. A lot of the trout fishing lakes I used to fish are very shallow and the fish would come in near shore to the springs and the shade of a floating mossy island. Just toss that fly and watch cold water boil. :D
