Fall Variety

A good fight from this drum! You really never know what you have on until it breaks surface in our waters. We've been very warm this fall and we are awaiting cooler weather to get the walleye bite going.

Greenback walleye

It's that time of year again when giant walleye begin to  inhabit the Red and Winnipeg rivers. It's surprising how over night these walleyes will appear on time honoured hotspots. Unlike many other walleye fisheries a large part of making contact will involve hunkering down and waiting for these goliaths of the Fall to come to you!

Greenback Walleye fishing set to start

The Red River and Winnipeg river become a focal point for walleye fisherman from all over North America from late September to the beginning of November. Giant schools of walleye come down from the sprawling waters of Lake Winnipeg to inhabit its largest feeder rivers. Stock levels of walleye in Lake Winnipeg are down from 2005 levels but are still above normal levels for this body of water.

Tiger Trout @ Twin Lakes

Great tiger trout fishing at Twin Lakes. However a question comes to mind looking at the tiny main body of water that is Twin: Can this body of water and its fragile trout population sustain the pressure that the Master Angler program will place on it?
