l'ascension

Anybody know any public access spots for ice fishing near L'ascension? Got a shack up here but don't know any spots.
Thanks!

Most of the region open until Nov 30th only. Then, zones 9 and 11 shut down except for a handful of lakes that remain open, see exceptions to rules in zones list. Zone 10 is the opposite, it remains open, but has quite a long list of lakes shut down to fishing during winter. Confusing to say the least.

Access remains the biggest issue, you need to find public access to launch from, and spot to park your vehicle as well. Public boat ramps, or waterside parks are your best bet. Unless you know someone that lives on a lake...

I've ice fished a few lakes up in your area, never caught too much besides for some small perch. Further South, Lac Maskinonge in Tremblant is open all winter, some pike and tons of big perch, but they are highly infested with worms, really not worth keeping unless you don't mind eating them  :P

Here are some pics from our trip there a couple years back:





There's got to be bigger ones in here :)

I'm seriously considering becoming a Canuck ( no offense intended). Nice pics.

Becoming a canuck is easy, just drink beer, watch hockey and go ice fishing :)

Was up on a couple lake in Zone 9 near Ste Agathe today, 3.5 to 4 inches of solid ice on the bigger one, 4.5 to 5 inches on the smaller one. Fishing super slow on both, some small perch and a smelt. Zone 9 closes as of Sunday.

Keep us posted! My shack is on tiny lake actually, but hadn't any time this summer to figure what the hell is in it. Until recently I discovered it's got bass and pike but it's not listed for exceptions and the zone closes on the 30th!

Bummer. At least you'll know for next season. I'd try today or tomorrow if you have the time, should be 6-7 inches of ice up in your area by now.

Lake Nominingue is it around that area, did you fished it apparently there is a lot of species of fish in that lake or is it a river ?

Lake Nominingue is the biggest lake in the Laurentians. I've never fished it, supposed to have bass, lake trout and panfish. I think they may have stocked walleye in there at some point in time, not sure if anything recently.

it says everything on that lake is closed for the winter unless I'm reading it wrong.

It's in zone 10 which is open until March 31st. It isn't on the exception list that has the closed lakes on it, so I'd assume it's open. See:
https://peche.faune.gouv.qc.ca/regpec/en/Info/Reglements?id_zone=10&id_saisn=20&courantes=False&resultats=True&opt_saisn=False

What made you think it was closed?

That is why I didn't notice it in the list, it was listed under "grand lac". Closed in winter.
