Your Fish

Eagle Nest is proud to say that we actively promote catch and release.

As we value the importance of a fruitful fishery and strive to keep Eagle Nest present-day, guests who do not notify their guide about take home fish, will only keep fish for lunch. Individuals who wish to take fish home must notify their guide so the appropriate fish are kept.

We are fortunate to share support from the Manitoba Resource staff for endorsing a range of conservation policies. Your reward is an excellent angling adventure that can be enjoyed and shared by all.

Along with our efforts to promote catch and release, Manitoba has enforced barbless fishing for more than 20 years. Barbless fishing only requires those lures on your line to be pinched with pliers.

Shorelunch and Take Home fish must meet the following guidelines: Pike 22"-26" and Walleye 17" and under can be kept for lunch. All Walleye over 17, all Pike over 26" and all Smallmouth Bass are to be released. Note: Take home fish are an additional $300 per stay. 

Replicas: We would be happy to help you make arrangements for an attractive fibreglass replica as a reminder of your trophy catch. Your guide will make sure appropriate pictures are taken to ensure the finished product is spot on.

Your Fish - Eagle Nest Lodge - Fishing Resort

Eagle Nest Lodge - Fishing Resort - Manitoba, Canada

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!
