Flin Flon Manitoba Area Fishing

Recommended Posts

My dad and I will be heading up to the Flin Flon, Manitoba area to bear hunt over Labor Day week (the second week in September). If we fill our bear tags early, we will have the option to do some fishing for the remainder of the week. I am not familiar with this area at all and have a few general questions.

Does anybody have any experience in this area? We will be targeting primarily walleye, and would not be afraid to travel to find fish as long as we could make it to and from the lodge within a day and still have a reasonable amount of time to fish. What lakes should we look into fishing? Also, is there typically a good walleye bite during that time of year? I should add that we will have access to a small boat from our hunting outfitter.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you have a fun trip planned. My Dad and some of his buddies hunted Moose up there many, many, many years ago. Google angellshuntandfish that is the fellow they used, he still keeps in touch with Gerry to this day. Should give you a good contact if you need one.

Reed lake is a very popular lake with BIG walleyes not too far from Flin Flon. Ive fished a bunch of times - big lake.... but if the weathers nice it easy to get around. As with all canadian lakes beware of rocks ... maybe follow a boat out or whatever - not the best maps for most lakes, and rocks all over!

If you want you could e-mail dirtkingofmn at yahoo for more info.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
