With the season about to begin, I thought I’d take a look at the lake before dropping the boat in for a run. But after seeing all the crap floating and the water levels so high, I decided against it. No need hitting something big and costly before getting started! Plenty of time to fish starting next Friday when the trout & salmon opener hits Quebec anyway! Pike will open the following Friday, May 5th and walleye a week later. With all this high water, it should be great fishing for everything as the shallow bite will make for easy pickings. I can’t wait to get out with clients, both new & old, for another excellent season. Plenty of openings available for anyone interested in catching both numbers and size of these early season fish. Gift certificates also make for great fathers day presents as well as birthday gifts! Just something to consider!
