Lodging at local hotels/motels is convenient. If you're fishing the Red or Winnipeg rivers, Winnipeg is not too far away (40 min.-Red, 80 min.-Winnipeg R.)and both Selkirk and Pine Falls have good lodging. It is the client's responsibility to book his or her own lodging but we can definitely make some suggestions as to what would be the best for the adventure you have in mind. Camping facilities are also available at any number of Parks throughout the province. There are sites with water, electricity, and indoor washrooms. If you need tips as to where to stay in Manitoba we can help.
Depending on the time of year you choose to fish for Cats or Walleye, the Red river from Lake Winnipeg to Lockport may be an option(while the Winnipeg River from Pine Falls to Traverse Bay - Lake Winnipeg is another good choice). Cats are on the chew from the opener (mid May) until until September. During late summer we tend to guide for Cats in between Selkirk and lockport. Walleye in the Red will start to pick up from the middle of September until the river is drawn down near the end of October. (generally speaking the Winnipeg river will start up a couple of weeks later and will be better longer than the Red)
If you decide to go with our full guide services,we provide boat and all fishing equipment needed. All clients need to bring is their rain gear or appropriate seasonal clothing, fishing licenses. If you have a rod and reel you wish to use, feel free to bring it with you and put it to the test on the Red River. On the other hand, If you want to fish out of your own boat we can accommodate that as well.
Most day trips are very flexible but generally start at 8:00 A.M. and end at 6:00 P.M.. Hours may vary on request or due to the best bite, weather conditions, or times available. We generally will meet before this time at a predetermined meeting place.
