Canadian National Fly Fishing Championships and Conservation Symposium
NFFC 12 Kenauk Montebello Quebec October 14 to 19 2014
The competition will be held near Montebello, Quebec at Kenauk. If you have never been to Kenauk, it is a beautiful spot that you won't want to miss at that time of the year. With approximately 100 square miles of wilderness, the "fishing is normally fast and furious that time of year" according to the renowned angler Randy Taylor.
The second NFFC (2004) and the ninth NFFC 2011 were held at this location.

The venues will be:
- Lac Otter (Lac de la Loutre)
- Lac Mills
- Lac Taunton
- Lac Sugarbush
- Lac Green (Lac Vert)
All are rainbow trout lakes, although the occasional brown trout shows
up in these lakes. Eligible species will be rainbow trout, brown trout
and brook trout. All sessions will be by drifting boat. Rule mods will
be posted soon, but nothing unusual is expected. No fishing is permitted on the competition venues 15 days prior to the official practice days, when venue boats will be
allocated to teams. The venues can be fished during the official practice days between 9am and 6pm.
The fishing is often spectacular this time of year, but the mornings can
be a bit chilly and the days are short. With this mind, we hope to run the
comp sessions 10am-1pm and 3pm-6pm, but if we can shorten the mid-day
break between sessions and start the afternoon sessions at 2:45 or even
2:30, we will. Sunset is shortly after 6pm.
Volunteers will be based in Papineau cabin, a beautiful (and gigantic!)
lodge-type cabin within the Kenauk reserve. The captain's meeting and
conservation symposium will be held there and it will serve as the
social centre for all. Scores will be posted there in the evenings.
Another 12 cabins within the Kenauk reserve have been set aside for
competitors - ie. one for each team. The term 'cabin' is a bit
misleading - while they run on propane and solar, they are really nice and comfortable, and most come with their own private lake. Each cabin has at least five beds. They do, however, come in different sizes - smaller, one bedroom types (Taunton, Mills, Commandant and Hatchery); mid-sized, two bedroom types (Rough, Pumpkinseed, Hidden and Muskrat), large, three bedroom types (Sugarbush, Cedar and Green)
and absolutely huge (Pine).
FFC has worked out discounted team rates for the week of the competition
averaging $90.00 per night per person.
Team captains should book their cabins directly.
