Preparation for fishing
12 April 2019
Between the thawing of the lake and the launching of the boats, we have a waiting period which requires patience.

Between the thawing of the lake and the launching of the boats, we have a waiting period which requires patience.

To pass the time, let’s prepare for our upcoming fishing season. Here are some tips and advice to be ready to start the fishing season effectively.

First, renew or purchase fishing licenses for the season. The provincial fishing license is mandatory on all bodies of water in Quebec. The rate for the 2019 season is $22.79 (taxes included) for a resident under 65 and is valid until March 31, 2020.

Then, the equipment, is our fishing rod in good condition? Maintain your reel, check the line, its tension and the presence of knots or a damaged section. By slipping it between your fingers, you can check if a section has been weakened or damaged by friction. Several experts advise changing it annually. Also, check the strength of the knots to tie the lures and hooks.

Would you be sad to lose a great catch due to lack of love for your equipment?

Finally, reserve your moment of escape. At the Pourvoirie du Lac Berval, we have a few places left either in accommodation or for daily fishing. Contact us to check availability.

Good preparation !!
