Québec Government imposes new fees for road-side access to the Diable River Fly Fishing Sector. Fly anglers are required to pay daily/annual fees to access Sector 1 to 4 of the Diable from Duplessis Road. See HERE for more details.
NEW TRAIL MAP FOR 2017 - Diable River Fishing Sector Trail Map now available. NaturAventur worked in close collaboration with Plein-Air Mont-Tremblant and the Tremblant Tourism Association to intergrate the Diable River Fishing Sector Access points and trails to the Canot-Kayak-Fishing map - Available at the Tourism Information Offices.

Week of June 6 - (DRFI 3.0): In quite a reversal from last week, we are heading into a very hot weather start to the week. Look for the latter part of the week for some relief and improved fishing conditions. Given the very low flow levels in area streams and rivers this will have a slowing effect on trout activity as water temperatures rise. Fish will be moving out of several low water areas seeking shelter in deeper, cooler and oxygenated waters. Given the lack of meaningful rainfall, the Diable River water flow continues to drop to below the 8m3/sec range which offer maximum cross river access and provides great river definition of fish holding areas. We are seeing a greater number and diversity in insect hatches as well as more active baitfish activity. With the abundant rock outcrops there is a strong and varied stonefly hatch happening. As a result look for some good for dry fly action during the coming week. Stillwater surface temperatures will also see a bumo in temperatures with trout seeking refuge in deeper waters. Early morning and evening will offer the best opprotunity for rising trout action this week. Look for trout to take on more summerlike patterns and behavior over the coming weeks.
Week of May 30 - (DRFI 4.0): The cooler temperatures over the past days and also forecasted for the coming week are a welcome change from the past week's summer like heat. The cooler water conditions under low water flows are helping keep the trout actively feeding. As the Diable River water flow continues to drop to below the 10m3/sec range offer increased cross river access and provide great river definition of fish holding areas. We are seeing a greater number and diversity in insect hatches as well as more active baitfish activity. The increased rock outcrops may also bring along an early stonefly hatch this week. As a result look for increased opportunities for dry fly action during the coming week. The cooler weather is helping lower stillwater surface temperatures which will promote more active trout feeding near the surface as baitfish activity and hatches increase. Look for trout to take on more summerlike patterns and behavior over the coming weeks. We would like to hear about your walleye fishing action since last week's season opening.
Week of May 23 - (DRFI 3.0): Cooler temperatures forecasted for the coming week will be a welcome change from the past week's summer like heat. The Diable River water flow will continue to drop slightly to hover around the 10m3/sec range which will offer cross river access and provide great river definition of fish holding areas. We are seeing a greater number and diversity in insect hatches as well as more active baitfish activity. The increased rock outcrops may also bring along an early stonefly hatch this week. As a result look for increased opportunities for dry fly action during the coming week. Stillwater surface temperatures continues to rise and we are seeing more active trout feeding near the surface as baitfish activity and hatches increase. Look for trout to take on more summerlike patterns and behavior over the coming weeks. The start of the walleye season increases fishing options this week.
The DIABLE RIVER is a fairly wide mountain-fed freestone river with a expansive watershed which makes it very responsive to precipitations. During early spring in April and May, water levels can be at flood levels or very high depending on ice and snow melt as well as springtime precipitations. Water temperatures can also be less than optimal for trout this time of year and afternoons on sunny days present the best fishing opportunities. The months June and July offer some of the best water conditions with optimal temperatures and levels throughout the day. Prolonged precipitations do however affect conditions during this period. As water levels drop to their lowest levels in August and September, the features of the Diable river become much better defined and the slower pace of the currents offer the best dry fly opportunities of the year. Early mornings and evenings are the best fishing times but some good surprises are always in store outside these periods. The fishing season on the Diable extends to the end of November for bass and pike with trout on a catch and release only basis from mid-September.
The DIABLE RIVER FLY FISHING ONLY SECTOR consists mainly of long stretches of pocket water, at times deep, with scattered but poorly defined pools. Streamers and nymphs are recommended for the most part with good dry fly opportunities after July. Caddis flies are abundant throughout the season with the most prolific hatches occurring in early June. There is also a good population of stoneflies with the best hatches occurring at the end of June. Mayflies are not in large abundance on the Diable, in terms of numbers and variety. Hatches are limited in size and duration with imitation or attractor patterns being the most consistent performers.
STREAMS AND TRIBUTARIES of the Diable watershed offer good spring-time fishing opportunities for brook trout and also for brown trout. Depending on the amount of precipitation during the season, these can offer good fishing throughout the season.
STILLWATER lakes provide good early season fishing opportunities for surface action on brook and rainbow trout, lake trout and also landlocked salmon on selected lakes. Several area lakes contain good populations of bass, pike, muskie and other sportfish which offers good fishing opportunities during the entire summer months with rising
temperatures. Most can be taken on a fly. Personal boat access on area lakes is restricted and fishing them may require access fees, the services of a professional guide or use of on-site rentals.
