Our guests enjoy Manitoba fishing for monster Northern Pike in one of the hundreds of cabbage weed filled beds that the Cobham River has to offer. What’s amazing to see is that while you’re searching these cabbage weed beds for monster Pike, it’s not uncommon to hook into a trophy Walleye in the same weed bed.
Even though the Cobham River is known for the numerous trophy Northern Pike and Walleye that are caught and released each year, we still offer you other such as Perch and Whitefish that give you their own unique challenge to catch.
For the fly-fishers, mid to late June is when you have the chance to catch trophy Manitoba Whitefish. Just 100 yards from our dock, you are able to stand on our sandy point, and watch as hundreds of Canadian Whitefish feed on mayflies. This opportunity to catch that trophy Whitefish lasts only a week or so. Also while fishing for trophy Whitefish, you will notice that many Northern Pike are also feeding on these Whitefish.
This gives you the opportunity to hook a trophy Northern Pike with your fly rod, and might I say let the real battle begin! While fishing our fly-in Manitoba waters, trophy Perch can also be found. While not as common as the trophy Northern Pike or trophy Walleye that our Canada fishing lodge is famous for, trophy Perch can be found on the Cobham River with the largest to date being 15.36 inches and weighing in at 3.6 lbs.
