The Tunulic is one of Nunavik’s rivers with perfect fly water and a reputation for producing a mix of Brook Trout, Lake Trout and Landlocked Arctic Char. Fishing is on ten beats interconnecting a series of lakes. The 45 km stretch of rivers, lakes and rapids offer a nice variety of water and lots of space.
Situated south-west of Rapid Lake, the Tunulic West Arms is a charming little river and offers 8 km of prolific Brook Trout water joining the main river at Twin-River Lake. It is a sensitive and demanding small river but rewarding with brook trout of 3 lbs and up.
The Koroc is an excellent river for sea run Arctic Char and is located 180 km North of Rapid Lake / 38 km North from Barnoin River Camp and tumbles into the Ungava Bay. Thousands of arctic char pass through the river each season and often anglers just stand in awe as the silvery hoards pass through. Fishing at the Tumbling Pool is usually at its very best in low or dropping water. During long draughts, the bottom pools become one of the hottest anywhere in the region with anglers casting to a number of char in full view. This is a great river to fish in combination with other rivers on the same trip.
The Barnoin is an excellent river to fish for Lake Trout and is located 140 km North of Rapid Lake. The prime time fishing is limited in early July and early September mainly. Fishing is on five beats over a 50 km stretch of river offering a nice variety of water and lots of space.
The Qijujjuujaq also called the Slot River, is a deep and narrow channel and is with no doubt the Ungava’s Bay most productive river for giant Arctic Char. Its located 90 km north- east of Barnoin River camp. This small but powerful river is where you’ll find the highest male ratio. The most productive
fishing is done on two beats along the narrow estuary inlet that is over 3 km long.
This beautiful Baudoncourt River only allows fly fishing. It is one of Quebec’s famous east Ungava Bay rivers with perfect fly fishing water for sea run Arctic Char.

The average arctic char run about 10 pound. VIDEO Arctic char fishing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlNDWyAfTp0
The middle part of the Baudoncourt and the upper lake fishes 6 rods in perfect fly fishing water for holdover Arctic Char in early July. At the end of August the upper Baudoncourt has a good stock of big red char. The upper river fishes 4 rods. From this upper part of the river you may expect big red char averaging 11 pound. Each season a number of 13 to 15 pound char are taken, and playing them in the heavy rocky flows is quite a challenge. Voluntary catch and released is widely practiced.
*We promote fly-fishing intensively, encourage the protection of existing resources
and support the catch-and-release regulation with barbless hooks.
