"Fishing in the Far North!" Radisson by Bwana_Brown

Radisson Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 27 photos

In the summer of 1990, Hydro-Quebec, the provincial power company in Quebec, flew a number of technical people from eastern Canada and the northeastern USA for a tour of their massive hydro-generation facilites at Radisson on James Bay. They have their own fleet of turbo-prop airplanes to fly staff back and forth between Montreal and this location 600 miles to the north. We had a very informative tour of the dams, their power houses and associated control equipment. However, we were also treated to a one-day fishing trip even further north on the shore of Hudson Bay. As the photo shows, I have proof that I did indeed manage to catch a nice sized trout! Not having really been prepared for this, on the return trip to New Brunswick, I wrapped it in newspapers, threw it into my luggage for the flight home and then cooked it up as soon as I arrived! Although my wife was not too impressed, the fish was delicious!

    You are lucky to be able to make such an off the beaten path trip. The Hydro-Electric Power Complex is impressive

    Nice trip but the clothing in your luggage must have stank fish for ages. Lucky to escape the maringouins.
