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.
