The months of March and April can often present opportunities to experience the best of ice fishing. Manitoba’s Northern Region is a prime example of those “best of” opportunities, offering a diverse selection of premier fisheries, and an extended angling season to pursue a variety of sought after species.
When it comes to stocked trout fisheries, Manitoba’s north has gained a reputation for producing giant rainbows. Recognized for their unbelievable growth rates, signature takes and extraordinary abundance, Manitoba’s “bow” has set the example for an exhilarating hardwater option.
Those who annually trail Manitoba’s giant rainbows can attest to their demanding requirement for strategy, skill and effective technique. Gaining the upper hand on seasoned bow takes a persistent approach, but the rewards can be colossal. The chances of landing a 25 inch plus titan is as real as it gets, and the prospect of that 28 inch plus fish of a lifetime is a proven annual achievement!
