June – September
This first-class Canadian fly-in fishing lodge is situated northeast of Winnipeg, about seven miles from the Ontario border. With daily flights into Winnipeg, you can be fishing the same day that you arrive! While not a very big lake, it is the second deepest in Manitoba and holds an abundant population of walleye, lake trout and pike. The claim to fame here is trophy walleye, and some anglers have landed one or more Manitoba Master Angler walleye (28″ minimum) during their stay!
During our recent inspection trip to this lodge, we caught many walleyes in the 22″-25″ class. Guided packages are from brand new 16 ft. Lund Alaskan boats with swivel padded seats and plenty of elbow room. The lodge sits amongst a beautiful birch stand along a sandy beach in the Atikaka Wilderness Provincial Park.
The 4,000 sq ft lodge houses the professional kitchen, spacious dining room with woodstove lounge and features panoramic views of the lake. Also attached is the air conditioned Clubroom and tavern where fun and celebrations are isolated from the guest cabins. This great meeting place reunites guests and staff on a nightly basis.
All of the guest cabins are very comfortable and can accommodate up to six guests per cabin. The Park Place and Master Angler Row cabins can accommodate 2-4 guests and each room has private bathroom with shower, electric heat, and outside deck. The Sunset and Boardwalk chalets are the new luxury cabins and can sleep 2-6 very comfortably. They have screened-in porches, huge showers, A/C, fireplace, and single or king beds. For private parties of 4-8 who wish to fish unguided, a luxury outpost, secluded from the main lodge and cabins is available.
