Jonathan's Favorite: A fishing trip on the Caniapiscau reservoir
Eeyou Istchee Baie-James is a great playground for visitors to marvel at. But it is also the place where thousands of people have chosen to settle. Whether it's for the high quality of life, the proximity of services, the landscapes that you can't get enough of, the accessibility of the outdoors...
We let those who chose Eeyou Istchee Baie-James speak for themselves and tell us about their favourite place in the region.
WARNING: This story is about fishing adventures on the Caniapiscau reservoir and is dedicated to making you dream of our northern lakes! Although the reservoir is located on category 3 land and is accessible to the general population, we do not recommend venturing out without careful and safe preparation. This group of people is composed of experienced fishermen and wildlife officers who are extremely well prepared for this type of trip.
For a safe and miraculous fishing experience, we strongly recommend contacting Mirage Adventure.
A STORY OF JONATHAN L.
“Eeyou Istchee Baie-James is a grandiose territory that never ceases to impress me for its incredible fishing quality. We have access to thousands of bodies of water that never disappoint. Every self-respecting fisherman has heard of the huge Caniapiscau Reservoir, located in Eeyou Istchee Baie-James, and its outstanding fishing quality.
This reservoir holds the largest expanse of fresh water in Quebec with an area of over 4300 km². A person who wishes to live a wild and isolated experience will be served! At this height, we are 745 km from Radisson, which makes it the furthest point accessible by road from a city in North America.
It's no wonder that, as an avid fisherman and lover of remote areas, I am drawn to this wonderful body of water! Every year, for 10 days, I gather with friends for a fishing trip on the Caniapiscau. Some of them travel from the "South" of the province to live the experience.
This is our fishing trip!
