Tackle Tips

As you prepare for you trip to Eagle Nest, we suggest 2 rods and reels; light action (6 to 8 lb.) line and a medium action (10 to 12 lb.) line. It is very probable that the tackle you own is suitable for Eagle Nest. Our fish aren't too fussy. Your success is more likely to be influenced by smooth operating tackle and equipment. We do carry items that are a must such as #4 & 5 mepps, 3" spoons, buzz baits, spinner baits, 3/8 & 1/2 oz. jigs, rattle traps and top water Bass plugs. Gold, white and chartreuse are popular colors. Nine inch steel leaders are needed for our ferocious Pike.

If you prefer to keep your barbs for more aggressive angling, anyone visiting Eagle Nest is welcome to use our selection of barbless tackle. We have rods and reels available for rent ($40 per day tackle included).

Matching the proper equipment to the fish you want to catch is an important part of hooking and landing a Trophy fish. Three of the most important steps in determining if your setup is Eagle Nest ready are; Ensure that your line is fresh without nicks, check your drag to make sure the line pulls off smoothly, and check all the eyes of your rod to make sure that your rod has not been damaged in any way. This can help prevent losing a fish due to equipment failure. One last step is to pinch the barbs on the hooks you plan to use. Angling in the Province of Manitoba requires barbless hooks, so any lure that is in use must have the barbs squeezed. Informed preparation will ensure that you have a successful fishing trip at Eagle Nest Lodge.

We look forward to your stay... "Your professional guide team" (when we're not fishin' we're catchin')!!

Eagle Nest Lodge - Fishing Resort - Manitoba, Canada

We are OPENING for the 2020 Fishing Season. RELAX, UNWIND, FISH. The kind of vacation everyone needs as we navigate through these difficult times.

I would like to send quick note out to our guests and staff of 2020. As we all know, COVID -19 has affected our day to day lives. Better times are ahead for us all. While the world remains uncertain, it our intention to open Eagle Nest Lodge as scheduled, and be ready to welcome another fishing season.

Since November, I have been working diligently to prepare for the 2020 season. New boats and supplies have been ordered, jobs are prioritized, employees are in place and I have reached out to past, current and potential guests regarding a fishing trip.

In 2020, along with the scheduled camp upgrades, Eagle Nest will be reviewing its' health and safety protocols to ensure we are current and doing the upmost for guest and employee wellbeing. It is a priority that our guests remain happy and comfortable while enjoying "time away" in an untouched, peaceful, safe, remote environment.

As of today, the CAN/US border is closed but we are optimistic about its' reopening. We want guests to know that their trip will not be lost if travel restrictions remain in place. Should timelines be a concern, scheduling dates later in the season is a welcomed option. Full deposits will be carried forward to use on 2021 trip if traveling to Canada is not possible. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your trip.

Our world is changing everyday. One thing that remains the same is the unrivaled experience we offer at Eagle Nest. More then ever, I look forward to the upcoming season to reconnect in place we go to forget about the "real world" so that we can relax, fish and unwind. There is no better destination that gets you "off the grid".

Thank you for your continued support throughout the years. I will continue to monitor current travel suggestions and be in touch as timelines near. We are all in this together.

Keep safe, healthy and stay positive!
