The Fishing... a remote fishing adventure awaits you.

"Nestled on a small bay at the start of the Winnipeg River at Pointe du Bois, just 2 hours from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Trail End Camp is a favorite destination of anglers in the know." Brad Dokken, Grand Forks Herald Writer

Despite the name, the Winnipeg River is more like a lake. 30 miles of river dotted with islands, bays and inlets offer plenty of fishing opportunities for northern pike, walleyes, smallmouth bass and perch.

It's a rare sense of privacy you will experience at a drive to fishing resort. Trail End Camp's location offers a powerful experience of wilderness that is difficult to encounter at most drive to fishing lodges.

"There is no shortage of places to go on this beautiful untouched body of water. The Winnipeg River won't disappoint the most avid of anglers!" Vance Hrechkosy, Winnipeg River guide since 1986.

Cast for big pike in the depths of the back bays, or find them hiding along the islands and channels. Topwater and bait rigs are great in early season. Anglers switch to spinner and spoons in June. Summer months see a variety of lures being tossed out for hungry pike, from large silver spoons to huge crank baits.

Winnipeg River Walleye are spread out between creeks mouths and fast current locations in the early spring. The fish then migrate to reefs and points in that spring. Once the weed beds are up in mid-summer the fish can also be found chasing perch and other bait fish. Spinner and jigs with dead minnows as bait seem to work best for walleyes.

Smallmouth bass start hitting on the shorelines and back bays, and then move deeper and by fall they're on points in the main river channel. Topwaters are great early in the year, then switch to diving crank baits in summer and to jigs and artificial baits or crawlers in the fall.

Our experienced on-site guides can steer you in the right direction with our custom-made Trail End Camp maps of the river. Our general store carries bait and tackle and the guides can assist you in what works best for your type of fishing.
