    Ouananiche

    My very first fish: Walleye!

    In the St-Jean Lake live the famous Ouananiches, salmons trapped in the lake and thinking it's the sea... well... they're fish...

    We stopped in a fishing goods store in Chicoutimi and asked around for the best spot. Some said Roberval, others Peribonka. We tried Peribonka, but weren't very lucky... Still, I caught my very first fish in life, a nice little Walleye (that the Peribonka B&B owner let me freeze in his cooler!).

    Equipment: Well... the usual... Boat, fishing rods, baits (the Chicoutimi store sold us a few spoons that could also be used for salmons). Buy the fishing permit at the coop supermarket.

    Trouts

    Small trout river

    At the Eternite River Park, we could fish in some of those lovely little rivers. Small trouts I think (since this was my first fishing trip ever...). Small, but so delicious! We fried them on the fire at camp, it was so fresh and juicy!

    In the paths leading to the little river, we encountered a porcupine and a black bear. Wow! (and scarry!)

    Equipment: Boots, fishing rods and baits, bucket or basket, hat, bugs spray, patience.
