Escape from it all in the Outaouais!
The Outaouais region has 20,000 lakes, a dozen rivers, and 33,000 square kilometres of unspoiled wilderness to get lost in … and find yourself in! The waters are teeming with walleye, pike and trout, and big game is never far from our outfitters. Here are some suggestions of outfitters where you can enjoy a relaxing and successful stay.
Domaine Shannon is the northern Outaouais at its best. Located between the La Vérendrye Wildlife Reserve and the Baskatong and Cabonga reservoirs, this outfitter boasts one of Quebec’s most beautiful forest settings. Stay in a cosy, fully equipped cottage, or “rough it” in a remote cabin deep in the woods. Either way, you’ll have an unforgettable stay, with plenty of fish!
Bryson Lake Lodge
Nestled deep in the Pontiac forest is Bryson Lake Lodge, with 15 beautiful cottages surrounding the large lake. Get out your fishing gear and go for the “Bryson Lake Grand Slam” by catching all four major fish species (lake trout, speckled trout, walleye and pike) in a single trip. It’s not as easy as it sounds!
Located in the northern Outaouais, Wapus Lodge promises you an unforgettable hunting or fishing trip—and blessed peace, if that’s what you’re after! Several outpost cabins are accessible only by ATV or seaplane, while others are close to the main lodge. Whichever you choose, you’ll enjoy nature at its finest.
Pavillon Richer holds the exclusive hunting and fishing rights to 240 km2 of wilderness dotted with 42 lakes, including majestic Lake Échouani, where the main lodge and 17 cottages are located, with another 25 outpost camps scattered throughout the territory. Enjoy exceptional hunting and fishing in a beautiful setting—a great way to immerse yourself in the vast forests of the Outaouais!
Association des pourvoiries du Baskatong
The Baskatong Reservoir is without a doubt one of the wonders of the Outaouais. This immense reservoir with its many bays is stocked with walleye every spring. It’s no coincidence that there are so many outfitters in the area! Whether you prefer staying at a B&B or in a cottage, relaxing on the beach or spending the day fishing, the Baskatong has just what you’re looking for.
Kenauk Nature is one of the largest private nature reserves in North America, with more than 60 peaceful lakes surrounded by comfortable and welcoming historic cottages. Besides hunting and fishing, there are many other entertaining activities to try in the area, making for an especially enjoyable getaway.
But don’t take my word for it: come see for yourself! Whichever outfitter you choose among the dozens in the region, I can promise you’ll take home lasting memories of your hunting, fishing or resort experience in the Outaouais! For detailed information, visit www.outdooroutaouais.com.
