Choose one of Ogascanans' many, beautiful sand beaches!

As seen in these pictures. some of our fishermen catch MULTIPLE TROPHY WALLEYE! Expect most of the Walleye you catch to be in the 14 to 21 inch range. Walleye are mostly caught in 4 to 25 feet of water. The 15 - 21 inch range is the perfect eating size. When you get into a school of these Walleye at feeding time, you can expect to catch a lot in short order! Fisherman are surprised to learn that blue Walleye are as common in Lake Ogascanan as yellow Walleye. Although similar sized Walleye school together, a good chance for a trophy Walleye exists at any time. We see Walleye up to 32 inches long and 12 pounds. And don't wait till dark .... you can catch Walleye all through the day at Ogascanan!

At Ogascanan, you can catch Walleye all day long ... ...

The Mullens family uses ultra-light rods with 6 pound test, a chartreuse jig with a crawler, and we catch fish! We anchor and cast, drift and even troll this rig. During your orientation, we will coach you on these techniques. Best advice? .......... Keep it simple - it works! Quebec fishing at its finest!

Fabulous trophy Walleye in July! ALL RELEASED! See ya next year Jack!


For Walleye fishing at Ogascanan, we have an inclusive slot-catch size limit. This means you can keep Walleye between 14 ½ inches and 21 inches. Releasing bigger Walleye ensures more spawning fish and more big fish......  A WIN-WIN DEAL FOR SPORTFISHERMEN!!

NORTHERN PIKE

We are pleased to say “Ogascanan fishermen release most Pike!” Many of our Ogascanan fishermen have experienced the excitement of having one of these fierce fighters attack Walleye being reeled to the boat. Other anglers have witnessed savage attacks as these "water wolves" rip violently at Walleye on their stringers. In fact, many Ogascanan Walleye bear prominent scars – a testament not just to their numbers, but also to the aggressive nature of these fresh-water-jaws. Although trophies in the 40 inch plus range are a good possibility, expect most of your Pike action to be in the 24-32 inch range – our biggest, 48.5 inches and 30 pounds. You’ll be fishing depths ranging from the surface to 20 feet, or more.

Most of our fisherman prefer walleye for eating. However, if you wish to keep Pike, we recommend the 24-28 inch range - they are the best eating size. We ask that you release bigger Pike. RELEASING BIG PIKE PASSES ON BIG PIKE GENETICS!  Quebec fishing at its finest!

The Mullens Family catch more Northern Pike on jigs with worms than with any other rig, primarily because we fish for walleye most often. When targeting Northern, we encourage you to rig with medium action rods and steel leaders. Remember – a quick battle with minimal handling is necessary for a successful live release. The fact is, a Pike has a predatory instinct – demanding attack. For this reason, a variety of spoons, buzz baits and stick baits work well.

PORTAGE TO INLAND CONSERVATION LAKES FOR PIKE!

When you portage, fishing becomes more than fishing… it becomes an adventure!
We have never allowed fish to be taken from these waters!
spacer.gif (852 bytes)
We’ll give you directions to the portage location. Follow a rudimentary bush trail for 10-15 minutes and discover a pristine inland lake. The canoe is already there. Paddle around these mile-long lakes and enjoy pike fishing fast and furious. Expect most of your action to be in the 24-30 inch range, but don’t rule out a trophy….like the two above! Caught, photographed and released. We recommend medium action rods, 8-10 pound test, steel leaders, ¾ ounce spoons and of course single barbless hooks are a must. These lakes are terrific hideouts where both young and old can experience the joys of sport fishing. As you glide peacefully around these lakes you’ll have a good chance of getting close to some Canadian wildlife; perhaps a moose or a mama bear and her cubs…have a camera ready! Quebec fishing at its finest!

LAKE TROUT

Serious Trout fishermen have long recognized Ogascanan as a top producer. Most of your Trout will be in the 24-30 inch range (4-10 pounds). However, we see Trout in the 20 pound range every year. Our biggest was a 42 inch 35 pounder! You'll find the 16-24 inchers to be the best eating size.

Lake Trout are slow to sexually mature – and when they do, big females lay a maximum of 2,000 eggs. This is very few in the fish world. For that reason, lots of spawning Lake Trout are needed. We ask that bigger ones be released. As evidenced by these pictures, our fishermen release lots of quality Trout. In doing so, they are ensuring the continuation of a healthy Lake Trout population. A quick battle and minimal handling are essential for a successful live release.

Lake Trout are a cold water fish preferring temperatures between 44 and 52 degrees F. In the spring they can be caught by casting or trolling spoons on the surface in Walleye and Pike waters. As the water warms, they go deeper, which is more conducive to trolling steel line, lead core or down-rigging techniques. No special equipment? Fishermen have experienced success vertically jigging spoons or simply drifting with a jig and worm, in deep water.

Fishing - "STRAIGHT UP AND STRAIGHT SHOOTING"

"When you’re goin’ fishin’......you need to know you’re goin’ where there’s some fish to be had." Take some time to really check out the quality of fish throughout our website. Look again, and compare these fish to other sites.....it's plain to see: OGASCANAN HAS FISH! We show you terrific fishing potential.   You've seen a lot of GREAT FISH..... You must have noticed that A LOT OF THESE ARE BEING RELEASED! In the case of walleye all BIG ONES must be released. Ogascanan fishermen certainly like eating fish, AND THEY DO! They also love catching some big ones, AND MOST DO! We provide you with a terrific fishing opportunity..... the chance to catch lots and sizes of walleye, northern pike and lake trout. THE FISH ARE HERE!

Ogascanan is a great sports fishery. This is not to suggest that everybody "slays fish" in every outing. "Sometimes you’re fishin’ and sometimes you’re catchin'...... the fish don't always bite the same." Fishing a new lake is a learning process and we’re going to help you all we can. We’re going to tell you where to go, when to be there, and how to do it.

Guests who have taken the time to learn the lake, leave content. We have an unsurpassed number of guests returning to Ogascanan every year......LITERALLY, HUNDREDS.

The Mullens family has been at Ogascanan for 30 years - 2019 will be our 31st season - and we’re not going anywhere.   We’ve got what we want……… because we’ve got what our guests want. We invite you to join our growing fishing family.
