Ice fishing with an urban flair

Fishing Old Montréal invites you to learn to ice fish on the Clock Tower Quay basin in the Old Port, just a stone’s throw from downtown. Like all of Montréal’s activities, the site is easily accessible via public transit.

A valid fishing permit is required; if you don’t already have one, they are sold on site. Equipment and artificial lures are available for rent at affordable prices. If luck is on your side, you might catch a sturgeon!

In the summer, enjoy a memorable outing on the river with a seasoned guide in a comfortable boat approved by Transport Canada. Inquire about shuttle service to the site from your hotel. After fishing, taste your catch on one of the St. Lawrence islands. Bring along a bottle of wine to enhance your meal. For a great gourmet experience, you can also have your fish prepared by one of Old Montréal’s participating restaurants!
