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?

    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.   
    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
