Centre touristique du Lac-Kénogami now offers anglers a package, including accommodations at one of the comfortable cabins located near this lake and a boat to set off in pursuit of beautiful specimens.

A real inland sea
Lac Kénogami, which means "long lake" in the Innu language, is a remarkable waterway fed by three rivers flowing from Réserve faunique des Laurentides (Pikauba, Cyriac, and Aux Écorces). The quality of fishing is remarkable, especially given the presence of many species of fish. Among them are speckled trout and landlocked salmon, a very popular freshwater salmon.
The abundance of food in this waterway means that the fish are very healthy, robust specimens. Perhaps you’ll pull in a splendid catch that will be the envy of your fishing buddies!
