The Lake of Two Mountains, also known as Lac des Deux Montagnes, is conveniently close to Montreal. It is where the Ottawa River widens and meets the St. Lawrence River. From May to November, you can fish mostly for muskies, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and walleye.
The vast St. Lawrence River connects the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean and runs through both Ontario and Quebec. This major waterway is home to a wide variety of fish and other aquatic life, and shore fishermen are common on the Island of Montreal throughout the year. Fishing for bass (both largemouth and smallmouth), carp, channel catfish, northern pike, sturgeon, and walleye can be done from the Canal Lachine to Les îles de Boucherville.
Réserve Faunique Papineau Labelle
The 700 different bodies of water that make up the Papineau Labelle wildlife preserve in the Laurentians are well-known for their abundance of fishing species. These fish can be found in rivers, lakes, and ponds. Diverse species of speckled trout, lake trout, splake, rainbow trout, landlocked salmon, bass, walleye, and pike can be found here for avid anglers.
Every year, this reservoir draws both local and international anglers who come for the plentiful northern pike and walleye that call the region’s waters home. There are a number of rivers, streams, and lakes to choose from, and Réservoir Gouin offers big catches for eager fishers season after season.
Lac St. Pierre
Between the cities of Sorel-Tracy and Trois-Rivières, the Lac St. Pierre is essentially an expansion of the St. Lawrence River. Because of this, it's a great place to fish, and it's easy to get to from both Montreal and Quebec City. Walleye, smallmouth bass, and northern pike can be caught from May to November.
