Northern pike and walleye fishing
Important Reminder for fishing Gouin reservoir and Lake Hebert
Northern Pike and walleye fishing on Gouin Reservoir
- Gouin Reservoir is protected by a wildlife conservation program. Limits are set for 8 walleye and 10 northern pikes per regular licence. 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 fishing;
- You will need a northern pike and walleye fishing permit for Gouin on top of the Quebec fishing licence. Available through us, like the Quebec fishing licence, permits are $6.00 CDN per day, $25.00 CDN for a 5-day stay, $35.00 CDN for a 7-day stay, $10.00 CDN per family per day, $40.00 CDN per family for 5 days and $50.00 CDN per family per week. Catch & Release permits are only $4.00 CDN per day.
- Remember to ask for a "catch & release" licence for free if you intend not to bring lots of fish back home. You can get regular and catch & release licences in the same boat.
