North Seal River Lodge Menu of Lakes
At the North Seal River Lodge you could just fish Egenolf lake right off the dock in front of camp if you wish and catch fish. Most people prefer to see all of Egenolf Lake and her 2 portages (Dillabough and East Lakes). There is plenty of water to catch trophies in all 4 species for the Canadian Trophy Grand Slam.
Yet, we offer a menu for our guests to chart uncharted waters. Blaze trails to waters untouched by humans. You might be that sort of person that wants to explore new potential in other waters. Here is your menu.
Atimkameskak Lake –
A true wilderness lake that’s easier to enjoy than it is to pronounce. It became an instant legend when the first two guests to fish it shattered the Manitoba record for most Master Angler fish in a day with an amazing 46 trophies. From the fishing we’ve seen to date, that record could be broken again. It continues today to produces multiple pike trophies per day and is a favorite of many guests. Key features of this lake is its sandy bottom shallow bays where you can see 41″ to 50 + trophy fish, It also features rocky bays where big trophy fish hide and ambush your fly or lure. The main lake offers lake trout to keep you busy all afternoon as well. 1 boat available.
Blackfish Lake –
For those wishing to maximize fishing time, available also as a fly-out. 3 boats. This lake is a wonderland of structure and one of the most amazing in the system. It has shallow sandy bay with lots of grasses, drop offs, tight mouth deepish to shallow bays, rocky bays with big boulders, deep lake trout holes, rivers, flowage with massive impressive weeds and water falls. In the deep holes you will find huge and plentiful lake trout with some being blackish in hue – thus the name blackfish.
Belsham Lake –
Part of the Johnson river system which leads into Bain Lake. Here the walleye fishing absolutely the finest! 100 – 200 fish days are common and walleyes average 22″-28″. It is the North Seal River Canadian Grand Slam at its finest. Within 5 minutes of the boat launch, you have access to some of the finest walleye, lake trout, pike and grayling waters you have ever seen. An amazing mix of habitat. There are several areas on this lake we have never fished. 3 boats available.
One of our furthest North lakes, it runs just North of Slyszuk alongside the Robertson esker. Crystal clear waters and big pike make it a very popular fly-out. 1 boat available.

Collister Lake is part of the Laurilla River System, which flows from Stevens-Nicklin to the North Seal. Unfished for several years, it awaits you, completely untapped, begging to be explored by you and your guide. 1 boat available.
Copeland Lake –
One of the last big lakes on the North Seal as it winds its way to the Hudson Bay. Copeland is a consistent producer of big, trophy pike and huge trout. It’s one of our guests’ favorite fly outs. This lake offers great pike structure with its weedy bays and rocky islands that have rows of weed beds for a pike ambush. In July this lake produces huge mid lake cabbage bed approx. 10-17″ deep where huge trophy pike congregate. Many trophy pike also enjoy sunning themselves on a northwest bay 3 foot weedy bay near the shore. Lots of structure to explore here. There also is a small population of otters that frolic on one of the islands here. Try to pull yourself away from the pike and trout and you’ll find excellent fishing for walleye and grayling. 2 boats available.

Too many letters for the full spelling but what is important, this lake is loaded with Pike !

Whitmore has some of the deepest holes in the North Seal ranging from 100 feet to 200 feet and our last guests that fished lake trout there hooked into some monsters that could not be brought in.
