Our team

Owner of the outfitter since 2005, Marc-André Chenail is an avid fisherman as well as a produce grower from the Montérégie region. Motivated by his entrepreneurial streak and his passion for fishing, he challenged himself to revamp the outfitting experience in order to modernize it and make it accessible to both amateur fishermen and the greatest enthusiasts, all in a comfort that is uncommon in the industry. Because of his job as a farmer, it is impossible for him to be permanently on-site, especially in the summer season!

The administration is made up of Claudia who performs several roles (administration, accounting and marketing) and Sonia who takes care of the administrative aspect of your stay!

On the site of the outfitter, Mike, the manager and the team composed of: Michel, Ékiel and Ghislain, will ensure that your experience is most memorable.

Lake Berval has an area of ​​27 hectares with a maximum depth of 11 m which is home to two species of trout: speckled and rainbow. The high season for these species is May and June since the water is colder. During the summer season of July and August, the warmer temperatures mean that we have to adapt our techniques and prioritize deeper or shaded places where the water is colder.

You can consult the bathymetric map to find out the characteristics of the Lake Berval, in particular the depth zones:

Do not hesitate to ask us for advice during your visit, depending on the weather of the day there are sometimes special tips to improve your results.

Being open year-round, you can enjoy fishing even late in the fall. Little known, fall fishing is excellent and very similar to the success of spring fishing. Surface or fly fishing is recommended.
