I fish Canada every year but in mid/nothern Ontario near Hearst. I don't have any info that would help you out. I have found the better fish the farther north you go. Let me know where you go and how you do. I will be up there in late july.

used to fish in Chibougamau in northern Quebec It was a 12 Hour drive for us 10 hours north of the boarder stayed @ Camp De Peche Pomerleau
was about $240 for the week (depends on cabin size ) but that was over 10 years ago. I have to agree with HM the further north the better the fishing. last trip out ave. walleye was 5-7# Northerns 12-15#
we did however went on indian waters & one day we caught over 10 northerns over 20# biggest was 28#
I would love to go back but I like the 6-7 hour drive to NY for our hunting trip more

It's about even for me fishing trip vs hunting trip enjoyment. With the cabin rental, my boat, our cost is about 900/person. Fuel cost to get there is half our cost. This year sounds like fuel will be over $4/gal ouch!!! We've paid over $7 /gal in remote Canada.

Canada's Imperial Gallon is greater than our U.S. Gallon, it's like 5 Quarts vs, 4 Quarts,
So, If their gas is 7.00 a gallon that would be approx. 5.60 for a U.S. gallon.
One imperial gallon is exactly 4.54609 litres, whereas one U.S. gallon is only 3.7854118 liters.
I hate math while i'm traveling...

ya I hear you, I have a great fishing buddy who happens to be my shift partner at work too. It's a shame he never wanted to start hunting. I've worked with him for 38 years and fished with him since 1980. Our fishing trips mirror my hunting trips, a little friendly competition, great food, and memories. This is the sme guy who always fished with my dad and netted his fish. Strange but I never fished with my dad on any of our trips?? Maybe he didn't like fishing with me Catching big pike is like stalking a buck, you gotta locate them then do everything right and mix in a whole lot of luck. I think a trophy is a trophy whether it has scales, or hair, which I am loosing every day.

I think in all my years I have hunted & fished with my dad once ea.
Groing up he told us so many stories about hunting & fishing but really never went with him
Now retired he loves shooting but can't get him to go hunting
I seriously think he doesn't have a passion for it like I do. He hunted & fished because his family had to to survive so it either brings back those bad memories or it is just not fun for him
He had told me numerous times he will never eat Duck or rabbits
for as long as he lives I leave it at that
