Fly Fishing in Manitoba

From the famous fly-in rivers of our northern frontier to the celebrated stocked lakes of our southern plains, Manitoba offers the devoted fly fisher an excess of both traditional and novelty fly fishing experiences. Sea-run brook trout on remote Hudson Bay tributaries, northern pike on sprawling sub-arctic waterbodies, and rainbow and brown trout on diverse prairie stillwaters are all signature 'on the fly' encounters which are often unique to select areas of our various provincial regions. 

Remarkable encounters on legendary fisheries

Home to multiple national fly fishing championships, endorsed fly fishing lodges, seasoned fly fishing guides and a growing fly fishing culture, Manitoba has established roots in the fly fishing world and has gained a prominent status as a premier fly fishing destination.
