Fly Fishing for Arctic Char

Rapid Lake Lodge
Nunavik, Québec, Canada

"Rapid Lake Lodge stands out because it is the only outfitter in Arctic Quebec offering Arctic Char river fly fishing. Many of our fishermen come from all over the world to measure up to this formidable sports fish that weighs between 8 and 12 pounds, and can even reach 20 pounds!

The outfitter also offers excellent conditions for brook trout and lake trout fishing using a seaplane and inflatable boats. The camp is only accessible by air, so you can enjoy total isolation and complete peace of mind. Needless to say, rivers and lakes are not subject to any kind of pressure when it comes to fishing, which ensures high-quality fishery."

• Good quality waders with boat friendly soles (no studs allowed).

• A rain coat, multiple layers for cold and windy days add to the anglers comfort and make for enjoyable long days on the water and protection against the elements.

• Don’t worry about biting bugs in the early part of the season, there aren't any, but do pack some insect repellent if we get an unusually warm spring.

• An inflatable fly vest or suspenders are a good substitute to a bulky life jacket and should be worn at all times on the water.
