New Pike Lake for me to Fly Fish

Checked out a new to me lake. I am always looking for a small lake with now power boat nonsense to fly fish for pike. Because of the lake and not because of fishing I will return in spring.

Fairford River Freeze Off

The annual event got a break from the regulations this year because the general season now extends to the end of the public school break. So, instead of haveing to be the last Sunday of March it can be the last Sunday of March break. In this case the 3rd of April. So the temperatures where down right balmy

MacArthur Falls One Pike and One Small Mouth Bass

Kinda my favorite quick stop warm water fishing spot. On this day I caught one bass (pictures) and one Pike (film) on the spey fly fishing rod.

It is big water.

Fly Fishing MacArthur Falls, Winnipeg River Manitoba

MacArthur falls is a multi-species location I like because of the low angler pressure and the big water I can fish with my spey and switch type fly rods. Bass pike Walleye and moon eye

Fly Fishing Sturgeon Creek Winnipeg

Right in Winnipeg here there are numerous creeks that feed the Red and Assiniboine Rivers. Sturgeon Creek is one I frequent.

It has mostly small pike and med carp. On this day I took my 5wt cane rod for a little in town action.

Fairford River Freeze Off

Manitoba is covered by 6 months of winter most years. Spring is this ethereal thing that looks and feels more like well more winter. Nonetheless afew of us hardy souls head out to the only open water in the province…the Fairford River!

The water is clear, clean and wade-able. So why don’t I fish it more ofte? Because it is 2-3 hours of the most boring and somewhat dangerous driving in the province.

We hit it the last Sunday in March which coincides with the end of the regular fishing season, Spring Break and the warmest part of the late winter.

Fairford River Freeze Off

Now leading up to this day we had temps in the high 20’s but any other year fishing at the end of March and having a day time high of -1 with no wind would be considered a blessing.

So the Fairford River Freeze Off was on even if only 2 participants from Fly Fishing Manitoba were there.

It was -5 on the wake up in the ‘Peg and 5 degrees cooler at our destination.

At Ashern there was icicles on the trees and signs.

Slightly Busy Guiding Month

I had a couple of Fly Fishing clients this month. One was a Dell computers employee from Texas. His thing was to fly fish where ever his company sent him.

I’m going to fish THAT!

Another one to hand

Oh there’s fish able water below that

Oh yeah the bugs

But there are fish too



























































































































The next Clients where two teachers from Sudbury. Not a lot of fish caught but one of them got a personal best.

It’s not Fly Fishing unless the fly gets in the tree

I dunked my camera after this
