The Grass River Lodge is a 24-hour drive from Chicago, but a short flight from most anywhere. To get here by plane fly to the Flin Flon Airport and the lodge will pick you up there. To get here by car follow highway #6 out of Winnipeg, left onto Highway 39 and in 60 miles the lodge is on the northern side of the road.

Grass River Lodge is a conservation lodge with an immense population of Trophy Northern Pike. Those conservation efforts began in 1984 when they caught 94 Northern Pike over 41 inches. That effort paid off because, in 2015, they caught over 287 Northern Pike over 41 inches with the big ones in the 51-inch range. The story is similar with Walleye whereas in 1984 they caught 28 Walleye over 28 inches and in 2015, they caught 243 Walleye over 28 inches with the big ones in the 32-inch range.

If you want big Trophy fish, this is certainly one of the best places to find them.

Outposts and Flyouts

The lodge hosts five cabins on File Lake and takes just 15 minutes by plane to get there. Most cabins sit on separate islands. File Lake offers good Northern Pike, Walleye, and Lake Trout fishing with Walleye in the 24-28-inch range, Pike in the 48-51-inch range, and big fat Lunkers in the 18-24-inch range.

Morton Lake is primed for Northern Pike, and big Walleye. The lake has naturally thick weed beds where both big lurkers like to hang. The Walleye are thick here and it is not uncommon for a single boat to catch 75-100 Walleye per day. Pike here, stretch to 46-inches.

Corley Lake, Loonhead Lake, and Vickers are all excellent camps too. All three host big trophy fish especially Northern Pike and Walleye.

In addition to the outposts, the lodge offers flyouts and they do so to five lakes. These are guided fishing on small lakes where conservation had really paid off. These lakes offer a whole day of fishing where you battle big fish and Trophies all day long. Fishing here is strictly catch-and-release with the exception of shore lunch where you are allowed to keep a few for lunch.

Overall, expect five-star service, and accommodations in a place where Trophies are the rule, not the exception.

  • Great fishing. Great food. Top notch hospitality. You won't find better hosts than Ike and Liz and their crew. This is not roughing it fishing.
