For fishing Gouin Reservoir, Lake Hébert and Lake Charlotte
- Gouin Reservoir is protected by a wildlife conservation program. Limits are set for 8 walleye and 10 northern pikes per regular licence. Since March 2016 the regulation has been amended and the walleyes kept will now have to be within a slot of 32-47 centimeters (13-18,5 inches). As a result there is also a new rule for transporting walleyes: they must be transported whole or in fillets with the skin wholly intact which means that the fillets have to stay attached by the tail. This is to permit identification of the walleye species and to establish total length. For more info on the new regulation we invite you to visit our Government web site;
- We have always encouraged fishing as a sport of Catch & Release and on top of the regulation on walleye, we recommend that youi keep only northern pike between 50-70 centimeters (20-28 inches);
- You will need a fishing permit for Gouin on top of the Quebec fishing license. Available through us, like the Quebec fishing license, permits are $7.00 CDN per day, $30.00 CDN for a 5-day stay, $40.00 CDN for a 7-day stay and $80.00 CDN for a year. Catch & Release permits are only $4.00 CDN per day;
- You will encounter our private game wardens on the lake. Their job is to make sure that fishing rules are observed and inform people about the positive aspects of catch & release;
- Remember to ask for a "catch & release" license if you intend not to bring lots of fish back home. You can get regular and catch & release licenses in the same boat.
- Lake Hébert is an exclusive fishing right territory and we have the power to manage our very own fishing rules in order to keep up with your expectations and make Lake Hébert the best possible fishing spot. More than ever we view walleye and northern pike fishing as a sport of catch & release.
- Our fishing rules: Walleyes are limited to 4 (between 14 to 20 inches or 35 to 50 cm at the V in the tail). Northern pikes are limited to 4 (between 20 to 28 inches or 50 to 70 cm), all trophies going back to the lake.
- Lake Charlotte is part of Lake Hébert exclusive fishing right territory and we have the power to manage our very own fishing rules in order to keep up with your expectations and make Lake Hébert the best possible fishing spot. More than ever we view walleye and northern pike fishing as a sport of catch & release.
- Lake Charlotte is strictly catch and release but you can eat fish on the spot. No take out. The ones you eat have to be: walleyes between 14 to 20 inches or 35 to 50 cm at the V in the tail / Northern pikes between 20 to 28 inches or 50 to 70 cm. All trophies go back to the lake.
