Canoes / kayaks
Canoes with paddles, life jackets and emergency kits are available FREE of charge for the Domaine’ guests. If there is a high demand, periods will be limited. There are no reservations and everybody must put equipment back in its place.
Fishing season begins June 16, 2018 and ends on Labour Day or, when the annual quota is reached. Bass fishing starts June 24. You must obtain either a daily federal fishing permit ($9.80 taxes included) or an annual fishing permit ($34.30 taxes included) from the lodge manager and census-taking is obligatory that you catch fish or not.
The maximum catch of fish per day is 5 of which 2 can be gray trout. Children of 15 years of age and less can fish on an adult’s permit; but the quota of 5 remains. The catch limit means that you must eat your catch in order to fish the next day.
The maximum number of daily permits at Lac à la Pêche is 20 on Saturdays and Sundays and 15 during weekdays and at Parker Lake they are respectively 12 and 10. If there are more fishermen than places available, a draw will be held at 9 p.m. the night before. Lake Parker is a one-kilometre walk from the lodges. The fish species are grey trout, sea trout, lake perch and small-mouth bass.
In the eventuality that La Mauricie National Park authorities close Lake Parker or Lac à la Pêche before Labour Day because the fishing quota has been attained, Info-Nature Mauricie will in no way be held accountable for the cancellation of this activity. You will therefore not be allowed a refund or a compensatory stay.
