Winnipeg River

Winding from Ontario’s Lake of the Woods to Manitoba’s Lake Winnipeg, the Winnipeg River is home to pike, walleye, smallmouth bass, perch, white bass and even the occasional lake sturgeon. Numerous bays, islands and channels ensure quality fishing in any weather, all year long. The Eagle Nest Lodge makes for a great base for visiting anglers.
