It was in 1967 that that my family acquired Wapus Lodge and made it what it is today “Quebec’s Top destination for hunting and fishing”. For the past 50 years, outfitting has been a way of life that has been transmitted from generation to generation. Always being preoccupied by the satisfaction of our customers and quality of services offered, we modernized yet keeping in mind its authenticity. We are one of a kind, we are the Wapus family!!
272sq. km of paths, lakes, rivers, and forest
An exclusive territory of 272sq. km
An exclusive territory, where you can expect immense spaces with an incomparable diversity of wildlife for hunting, fishing, pleasure and ACTION!! Its 272sq. km territory is also divided into blocs offering private areas for bear and moose hunting, ensuring safety and peace of mind. Over 30 lakes ranging from pike, walleye, speckle trout or lake trout fishing are accessible be road, ATV trails or hiking. A good management of our territory is of the utmost importance that is why we have implanted quotas on species and lakes. Further in the general information, you will find the regulations along with the limits.
Given the comfort and cleanness of the cabins, more and more families and couples are present.
While you initiate some of the kids to the secrets of fishing, other members of the family might prefer to sit by the pool on those hot summer days and why not prolong the pleasure and enjoy an exquisite meal in the rustic and cozy dining room. In August, you can take a day off from fishing and enjoy wild fruit harvesting and for the mushroom lovers, you can find wide variety. Wapus offers all you need to make your stay an unforgettable memory.

For the walleye, it is therefore mandatory to respect the new slot size in effect, releasing all walleye 37cm (14 ½ inches) and under and 53 cm (21 inches) plus, thus allowing to keep between 37cm and 53 cm, Rulers are in all the boats.
For trophy pike, we allow you to keep 1 over 90cm (36 inches) but we highly recommend taking a picture for good memories.
