Cross Bay, Cedar Lake, Manito ba

Recommended Posts

Can anyone provide me with moderately recent info on Cross Bay/Cedar Lake in Manitoba? We're heading up there in early June, and would like to hear a bit more than what I read in lodge/tourism brochures.

Thanks in Advance....

Cedar Lake is now the forebay of a large hydroelectric project constructed in the early 1960s. It is a large body of clear, cold water with thousands of miles of shoreline, islands, reefs, flooded areas. It has monster northerns and walleyes. You won't be disappointed.

I make 7 to 8 trips a year to Cedar Lake Manitoba. I have a camper there at Moak Lodge. Fishing is awesome if the wind doesn't blow you off. Normally in mid june the Eyes move into the river in town so if it's windy you can always drift the river. Walleye are plentiful and limits are taken in an hour or two. The Lake is Big and has many reefs , Islands and Bays so fishing for Pike is great to. Pike stage in the shallow bays early in the year and tend to hang close to them or in the main channel all summer.

Need any more info I would be glad to help.

Mike, thanks for the reply...Haven't been on the forum much since I posted....We're leaving for Moak campground next Friday 6/8/07 grin.gif, so I'm counting the hours. Couple of questions for you: Is Manitoba still barb-less? I've got a good array of tackle (my wife snorts at that comment), daredevils, five-o-diamonds, doctor spoons, steel leaders, etc....Any specific suggestions on other lures/spoons or such? Thanks for the reply. We get into Moak campground Saturday 6/9 after an overnight on the way up. I'll be the bald fat guy with the party of 6 in a pair of Alumacrafts from Minnesota.....

Remember, an angler who tells you everthing you want to know will lie about other things, too!!

I have been researching this area as well. Can you pinch the barbs down or do you need to buy barbless hooks?

How many resorts are there up there? Where is Moak on the bay? East side, west side, etc? Do they have a harbor? Boy, any info you could share would be fantastic. We have a couple of father/son teams that have been going to Ontario for 20 years and are looking for a new place to try.

Talker....just curious as to how you faired on your trip? I have been thinking about giving this lake a try for a long time now. I'd love to get into some of those bigger gators. How was your stay at Moak Lodge? Is it affordable for a guy who has to watch his budget?

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
