The Mattawa Gaming Club

Mattawa-Gaming-ClubTrophy moose, black bear and white tailed deer are abundant throughout the thousands of square miles (yes that’s thousands) of crown managed forests accessible from our lodge.

Located at the junction of the historic Ottawa and Mattawa rivers the lodge offers the unique opportunity to fish and hunt in two Canadian provinces. This means twice the territory, expanded seasons and greater variety of species. For example Quebec allows a moose to be taken by bow during bow season and by rifle during rifle season. Ontario on the other hand has regulations for deer hunting much less stringent than Quebec. Our experienced management and guides will design annual hunts to ensure the best opportunities for each species in each province.

Small game and waterfowl hunting are great ways to spend some time after you’ve taken your big game animal. When you want to fish for fun you can catch Walleye, Northern Pike, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Muskie, Whitefish and Sturgeon off the dock. When you want to get serious we’ll take you into the ZEC MAGANASIPI. Just across the river, this three hundred square mile preserve offers three hundred and seven lakes. Rainbow trout, Lake Trout, Brook Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Lake Char, Splake and Sauger along with the others mentioned above can be caught in record numbers and trophy sizes. Just a forty five minute drive from the club (paved road) puts you in ALGONQUIN PARK. Four thousand and eight hundred square miles of protected wilderness, a thousand miles of inter connected canoe routes and lakes, fishing and wild life viewing without equal in North America.

Club Beauchêne club

Club Beauchêne

possibly the world’s largest smallmouth bass

Club Beauchêne fishingPound for pound, the smallmouth bass is the gamest freshwater species–so claimed Dr. Henshall. Despite its many attractive qualities, the world of the smallmouth is dwindling, and locating quality Canadian bass water is getting to be a difficult proposition.

Situated just across the Ontario border in western Quebec, the Beauchêne Reserve has been a premier smallmouth fishery for many decades, and today stands as one of the most productive spots anywhere in Canada. Although it began as an exclusive sportsman’s club for executives, Beauchêne has been available to the public for many years. Though the facilities have been upgraded consistently, the many charms of the original Beauchêne have not been lost.

Alberta fish

Alberta Drift Canada

ideal short trip combines top-drawer trout fishing with first-class outfitter

Alberta_fishSuperb trout fishing rarely occurs close to urban centers, let alone in rivers that flow gently through the center of town. But many trophy brown and rainbow trout have been taken from the Bow River, which is a few long casts away from sprawling Calgary.

Born in the lakes and streams of Banff National Park, the Bow winds its way towards Calgary, hosting a reasonable but not a big population of trout. But after it reaches Calgary, the Bow changes character, with flowing beds of aquatic weeds, prolific insect hatches, and squadrons of hungry, rising trout. For the next 40 miles, until it reaches the weir at Coarseland, the Bow offers some of the best fly fishing in North America.
