A day at the lodge

A visit to a Manitoba fishing lodge is so much more than just fishing (although it really is fantastic). Have a look at what you can expect on any given day during your stay.

Sunrise at Elk Island Lodge, Gods Lake.

Sunrise comes early to northern Manitoba and beckons even the deepest of sleepers from slumber. It’s easy to get out of bed when the scenery looks like this (Elk Island Lodge, Gods Lake).

Breakfast is served at North Knife Lake Lodge, North Knife Lake.

The most important meal of the day gets treated with the upmost respect. Freshly-ground coffee accompanies these eggs baked in phyllo pastry (North Knife Lake Lodge, North Knife Lake).

And then it’s time to start fishing! You’ll get your morning workout by hauling in a Master Angler lake trout like this beauty (North Knife Lake Lodge, North Knife Lake).

Wild blueberries at Shining Falls Lodge, Family Lake

Get out of the boat and explore the land. Wild blueberries, Labrador tea, wild chives and mints dot the landscape (Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge, Egenolf Lake).

And then it’s time for lunch. Shorelunch! There’s nothing better than freshly-caught walleye cooked over an open fire in the wilds of Manitoba (Shining Falls Lodge, Family Lake).

Waiting for the big one to grab the fly at Elk Island Lodge, God’s River.

After that hearty lunch, it’s easy to lull yourself into the rhythm of fly fishing—until the big one grabs your fly! (Elk Island Lodge, God’s River)

Manitoba’s fish species are abundant not to mention stunningly beautiful. A tiger trout shows off his colours (Alpine Country Outfitters, Patterson Lake).

The iconic de Havilland Beaver at Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge, Egenolf Lake

It’s the workhorse of the north. The iconic de Havilland Beaver is always in the air, shuttling anglers to remote lake and delivering cargo to restock lodges (Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge, Egenolf Lake).

Arctic cranberry cake served at North Knife Lake Lodge, North Knife Lake

Every dinner begins with delicious appetizers, followed by a hearty dinner and then, of course, dessert. Tiny Arctic cranberries add colour, tartness and a hint of sweet to this cake (North Knife Lake Lodge, North Knife Lake).
