Each year, thousands of shad travel nearly 3,000 kilometers to spawn in freshwater. Chimes dams on the Ottawa River and PieIX dam on the Rivière des Prairies are the best breeding sites for this species. For a very limited time, in the heart of Montreal, I offer you the opportunity to enjoy this “happening” in my boat. Positioned to cross swords against a combative almost as Atlantic salmon opponent, you will be able to fish this sturdy fish with an ultra-light and even fly rod outfit! Every year, people come from all over to try their luck. Do like them, just live for thrills!
