Earlier this spring I was fortunate enough to have made my first trip up to Quebec's world famous fishing resort - la Reserve Beauchene (LRB). As some Fish On Line Canada readers may recall from the article that I wrote for this site shortly after the trip, the excursion was part fishing and part work. The fishing part was well - a lot of great fishing for lake trout, brook trout, some pike and walleye and plenty of hard fighting smallmouth bass.
The work involved being part of a crew headed by fisheries biologist Mark Heaton. We collected brook trout fry from Scotty Boxes (small incubation containers that would hold eggs and eventually young fry) from the Reserves' main lake - and stocked them into some of the remote brook trout lakes located on this incredible 50,000 acre piece of property in the wilds of northeastern Quebec.
