Products for feed
The quantities of feed and food needed to feed a carp spot can quickly be high. In order to compensate for this here are some shops to get cheaper ingredients.
*This list does not necessarily contain the names of the shops but more the type of shop where you will find what you need.*
To get a good supply of oatmeal and creamed corn in large quantities without necessarily ruining yourself, go to food wholesalers and restaurants. They sometimes have access to products in good quantities for a reasonable price.
Some examples :
- Aubut : http://aubut.ca/
- Mayrand : http://www.mayrand.ca/
The Mills often offer round or crushed corn, birdseed and feed in large quantities at prices that defy all competition. This is a real asset when you know the quantities of food that can be sent into the water for carp.

In agricultural sectors that do not have mills, go to agricultural toolmakers, JNBs and other BMRs that often concentrate grain ordering services.

The Yamaska National Park is a park in the SEPAQ network next to Granby in the Eastern Townships. It is made up of wooded areas, farmland and a lake, which is a drinking water reservoir. This artificial water body was created thanks to two dams and is 4.7 km2 of area.
With a large stock of fish, the Park has developed campsites, campsites for children, and a number of recreational-tourism routes and the possibility of fishing on the lake.
This is the only known lake in Quebec where you can fish for carp at night in camping. And it is the only fishing spot in Quebec where the stock is 99% mirror carp (with almost no scales).
There are only 3 camping sites that allow you to do the carp fishing in camper vans have access to the water: sites 141 and 142 of Les Roselins and site 1 of the rustic campground. Departure rate about 35$/24h+8$/day park entrance fee.

Carp fishing campground located in Long Sault, Ontario, on MacDonell Island in one of the parks of the St. Lawrence Parks System. There are two sites located along the main river bed.
