I just booked a five day stay at Hyatt's Manion Lake Lodge, from August 5th - 10th. I was there a few years ago in June as that is where we ended a Boy Scouts canoe trip. We fished a littlle there so I know there are big Smallies and abundant Walleye. Can anyone share any other info. We are not into fishing much but this is a birthday present for my son and I think this might just get him hooked on fishing. Do I need special permission from my wife to cross into Canada with my son? I know we needed it for the scouts. We are bringing our own boat and any tips on live bait versus artificial would be appreciated.

The Turtle River/White Otter lake area:

From talk of very low Ontario lake water levels last fall of 2021,to extremely(flood)high lake water levels may of 2022!

I haven't seen water this high since 2002.

True or false: I was told that this year you can NOT bring any alcohol into Canada. It must be bought in Canada.

Lake ice should be gone any day now!

Good to hear the water level is way up,because of winter snow,& heavy recent rainfall.

When I was there the end of August,2021,water level was down 20” and was a bit difficult traveling from lake to lake though the small river channels.

Fishing should be as good as it was last fall!

Wife,and I went into Canada Aug 20,through international falls/fort frances without any issue. Took 75 mins.

Stayed at the outpost camp as usual. Weather was good,not a mosquito for miles,lake levels were about 18” low as a result of the lack of winter snow,& spring/summer rains.

Fishing,….

Walleye: excellent!

we would jig/minnow,or 1/2 crawler on,around rock structures & sunken points thru out the system. 8’-28’ of water. Fish were 16”-25”.

Smallmouth bass,& pike were everywhere the walleyes were.

Caught good numbers as well while walleye fishing. 

Lake Trout:excellent 

Caught trout trolling spoons,with 3,or 4oz snap weights 20’ back from spoon,let out 150’-175’,or find 60’-65’ of water,& vertical jig the trout worked pretty good as well.

Came back to the states Aug 28 at 6am without any issue. Took less than 2 mins,yeah,I was only one in line,lol.

Next Canada trips,June,& Aug,2022!
