Had an amazing time fishing for catfish on the river. The guide service could not have been better. If I try and think of anything that could have been done better I can’t name one single thing. Not only did Donovan set us up for some amazing fishing, he helped create memories that my family and I will forever cherish. I highly recommend.

Donovan put us on the fish & moved us if the bite died off. He drilled lots of holes to help us follow the fish. Two of the three in our group caught our person best fish! My husband, dad, and I have been on several guided fishing trips to Mexico, Las Vegas, Lake of the Woods, Devil’s Lake, and Montana to name a few. This was by far our best guided trip. We are already looking into booking for next year! Thanks for a great experience on Lake Winnipeg!
