Fish some of the best Arctic char waters in the world from this lodge on the Barnoin River in Ungava Bay, Quebec. If you have always dreamed of a place where you could catch char on every cast, this is the trip for you. A place with spectacular waterfalls, crystal clear water and secluded river pools. You will find the Ungava Bay region to be the most productive Arctic char fishing in Canada. If you've never been lucky at fishing, it's probably because you never tried Arctic char fishing.
This unique V.I.P. fishing trip will allow you to fish Arctic char and visit some of the very best kept secret places. Come test yourself against a real fighter, the Arctic char. These powerful swimmers migrate up the mighty rivers and leap the rocky falls to reach the spawning grounds where they are hatched. Take a deep breath when an Arctic char takes the lure. You are in for a battle of skill against pure instinct. Your guides will lead you to some great fishing pools and show you how to catch 10 to 15 lbs. Arctic char on fly or casting rods.
In late August this exceptional journey in the country of auroras borealis attracts anglers for Ungava’s big red chars and the magnificent autumn tundra colors. It is an ideal period to observe bears and thousands of arctic chars which go back up river to spawn.
