Lac du Mâle Outfitter • Mauricie, Quebec, Canada

Walleye and Pike fishing

Real stories…

The Lac du Mâle Outfitter are part of the Gouin reservoir, a place where some of our guests encountered rather hilarious situations. Such as the time when a pike jumped right in the boat of a group of French fishermen, or for instance, when this American chap was dragged overboard by a supposedly some thirty pounds pike… then, there’s the lady who caught two walleyes and one pike on the same lure, and last but not least… a freshwater Jaw gulping down a loon right in front of eight guys busy filleting fish in the fish shack…I keep telling myself these stories are just a whole lot of nonsense, but why wouldn’t I share them. They’re true, no two ways about it!

The cottages are intimate in a small bay

Lac du Mâle is a peaceful place where the cottages are set back in a little bay adjoining the big lake. We established ourselves at the Gouin reservoir in 1976 and there sure is a peculiar magnetic current that pulls a great many of our customers to return year after year. Three groups have never missed their annual rendezvous in 32 years, can you imagine. Several tally up to twenty years and more, and over time… stories get written-up in the Souvenir Book.

The lake is fed by 2 rivers

Lac du Mâle used to be a natural lake long before the dam was built in 1923. This is why the lake-floor offers so many structures and significant troughs. No matter the water level, the key fishing spots are always accessible. The lake is fed by two rivers inviting a large quantity of forage fish. The food store is always jam-packed.

A few islands adorn the panorama and a stop near any of them will often provide nice surprises. They also serve as wind shelter. The point and Eagle Bay are full of unexpected wonders, whether a large school of walleyes or huge pikes hidden in the bays.

The fish is there permanently

Lac du Mâle has an endless stock of fish throughout the season. One only has to adapt fishing techniques according to the fishing period.
