Our lodge on the banks of the Winnipeg River offers some of the best fishing in Manitoba for Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Goldeye and a variety of other fish. We provide fishing boats and motors on all of our black bear hunting packages for hunting and non-hunting guests and we can assist you in getting fishing licenses and bait from one of our local vendors. Children of all ages can enjoy fishing while accompanying their parents, making this a family vacation instead of just a hunting trip.
Trophy Northern Pike Fishing
Northern Pike is one of the most common and widely found fish in Manitoba. Northern Pike are a favorite with our anglers for the fast strikes, the relative size and the strong fight these fish put on for our fishing clientele. Pike can be caught from the shore or through the use of our boats on the Winnipeg river. Northern Pike are active voracious feeders and extremely predatory. Big Pike are opportunistic carnivores that feed primarily on other fish including Perch, Drum, small Suckers, Walleye and even other small Northern Pike. Bring heavy metal spoons like the Canadian, Daredevil, Five Diamonds and heavy leaders for your Manitoba Pike fishing.
Trophy Walleye Fishing
The Walleye is the largest member of the Perch family, and can weigh over 20 lbs. The size, hard fight and tasty table fare make this fish one of the most sought after game fish in Manitoba. The Winnipeg River offers a significant population of Walleye and these fish provide the best meal that you will have while in Canada. Walleye are present year round and we can assist you in your selection of the right walleye jigs and bait needed to bring these fish to net.
Trophy Smallmouth Bass
Smallmouth bass in the rivers of Manitoba have become a dominant predator, feeding on other fish, crustaceans and large aquatic and terrestrial insects. Smallmouth bass spawn in late May and Early June during the Spring bear season and these fish offer great adventure for our anglers. Before spawn and post-spawn, lures that look like minnows are extremely effective. During mid-June to mid-August, use lures that mimic crustaceans. In the early morning and late evening hours, Smallmouths will readily pursue top-water baits and the action can be just what your craving.
