Our staff members are known for their loyalty, friendliness and experience, and they will see to your comfort and safety throughout your stay. In fact, most of our staff members have received first-aid training.
They will be your hosts, fulfilling your accommodation needs and your sporting and recreational expectations, in French or in English. At the Saint-Jean Lodge, your entire day will be devoted to angling with a guide who will ensure your safety and also share with you the secrets of the river. Nighttime, of course, is your time to relax.

Gaétan’s 32 years as a guide have made him a man of experience! He’s even led expeditions to the mythical island of Anticosti but it was the St-Jean that won him over. Talk to him and you’ll learn a lot.
As a guide at the Lodge for the past 15 years, Allen has watched a lot of water flow and seen many salmon jump, but he’s especially happy when there’s a catch at the end of your line! Just like our other guides, he’s always nearby and ready to lend a hand.
Another man of experience! He has worked for the corporation since 1983 and spent 14 years working in the wildlife preserve. He began his career in 1979 as a part-time guide and has been a full-time guide at the Lodge since 1998….just your average guy who’s just wild about salmon!
