About fifty five years ago, between 1958 and 1968 my father Raymond Portelance owned this fishing center with his cousin Edouard N. D'Amour in the of  "Centre de PÍche Portelance & D'Amour".  At this period, only the access road and sale of minnows were available during the winter season.

The Owners at that time Raymond Portelance and Edouard N. D'Amour

In the beginning of the third millennium the family business restarted activities on the January 4th of 1998 in the name of  "Centre de PÍche La Madeleine".  Now we offer still in winter only, a lot of diversified services to satisfy to the different needs of our customers.  Some are asking where comes the name of "La Madeleine" given to the Center.   Before the fusion between the parish and the village, the territory where is located the Fishing Center was named Ste-Madeleine de Rigaud.  It's in memory to this name so we designated the Center.  In the next pages you will discover all details on our services.

Yes! It's me, the instigator of this beautiful adventure
