Welcome to Canada’s Premier Smallmouth Bass Fishing Lodge. For over fifty years M11871 has hosted discriminating anglers from the world over. The lodge and fishery have withstood the test of time. Unlike many waters, the Winnipeg River, because of the immense amount of structure and timely conservation program, continues to be one of Canada’s premier fisheries.
Beautifully situated at the remote northern boundary of Manitoba’s Whiteshell Forest, M11871 is nestled among the spruce, birch and pine of a 17 acre island in the Winnipeg River. Though the lodge is remote it is convenient to Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba and a major transportation center.
The Winnipeg is a steady producer of trophy fish. Walleye, northern pike and smallmouth bass receive the most attention. However, the Winnipeg has rock bass, yellow perch, goldeye, whitefish and lake sturgeon in excess of 100 pounds. Besides the fishing in the Winnipeg River we also fish Crowduck Lake, for world class Walleye action (via portage or fly-in) and two trophy Bass lakes (via fly-in).
