Fishing in Gatineau Park

Grab your fishing rod, and head out to Gatineau Park. You can fish in any lake in the Park, with the exception of Pink Lake, Harrington Lake (Lac Mousseau) and Édouard Lake. Don’t forget your Quebec fishing permit!

Gatineau Park is part of Quebec’s fishing zone 10 and zone 25 (Lac des Fées). These zones are managed by Quebec’s Ministère des Ressources naturelles et de la Faune, which also determines the fishing seasons. You can get a fishing permit at most local sports, hardware and convenience stores.

You cannot fish from the Park’s beaches. For park conservation reasons, the use of motorboats is limited in Gatineau Park. Also, dogs and pets are not permitted near any bodies of water in Gatineau Park.
