Seagrim Lakes Backcountry Fishing Trip - 2 nights
Seagrim Lakes Backcountry Fishing Trip - 2 nights
Fishing isn’t about 5 star lodge accommodations, thousands of dollars worth of expensive equipment and luxury boats, or even who can catch the biggest master angler. Fishing is about adventure, sport, relaxation, and most importantly, enjoying the great outdoors and all that it offers us.
Take a step back in time with Twin River Travel and enjoy a fishing trip at its most natural and instinctive. This is how it’s been done for generations in Nopiming Park, paddling to your best spots, casting a rod, and hoping for a bite. If you’re down for a little bit of adventure, and not afraid to spend a night in a tent and sleeping bag, then you’re the type of person who would love this trip.

Every lake on the trip is inaccessible by motorboat, which makes for some of the most spectacular fishing in the province. These lakes are full of fantastic Walleye, Northern Pike and Smallmouth Bass. Your guide knows these lakes inside out and will guide you to all the best spots as you meander from lake to lake, fishing when the fishing is good, and paddling along your route when it’s time to start putting in miles.
For this trip, we provide everything, transport from Winnipeg, delicious home cooked food, and all the gear you’ll need for camping, paddling and fishing. Yes, if you want to bring your lucky lure or favorite rod, then go ahead! But if not, now worries, we have everything.
1. There is a waiver and a medical info form that will be sent to you upon booking, and need to be filled out and signed to go on the trip.
2. Our trips depart from the Winnipeg Canoe Kayak Centre at 80 Churchill Drive (just across from Churchill High School). There is street parking available in front of the centre.
3. We will meet at the centre at 9:00am the morning of your departure, aiming to leave at 9:30am.
4. We will return to Winnipeg mid-afternoon the return date. Roughly between 4 and 6
5. You only need to bring what is mentioned on the packing list. Anything else is provided by us. We have boats, gear, food, tents, rods/reels/tackle and a passenger van to transport you from Winnipeg to Nopiming Park
6. We are outdoors for our entire trip. We camp in tents and spend our days on the water and around the campsites. Be prepared for rain, sun, bugs, and hot and cold weather. Sunscreen, bug-spray, a rain-jacket, and 1 or 2 warm sweaters are recommended depending on forecast. Check your packing list for details.
Trip Difficulty: Beginner
This trip is rated for beginner paddlers. We only paddle on small lakes with no moving water, and we never paddle longer than 10kms in one day. At the beginning of your trip we will teach you some paddling basics and make sure you learn the basic skills needed to make your trip a success. If you ever want advice feel free to ask your guide to evaluate your paddling!
This trip has short portages. No longer than 300 metres. You are expected to help carry equipment along the portages, but you are never expected to carry more than you feel comfortable with.
Once at camp, guests are expected to share in the duties of setting up and maintaining the campsite. This includes setting up tents (don’t worry, your guide will teach you how to set up our tents), collecting firewood, and packing up your own sleeping bags and sleeping mats.
Even though it’s summer, we are outside almost all the time, and it can get cold, especially at night. Remember to pack for the daily lows, not the daily high. (it can be 25 degrees at 2pm but drop to 10 degrees by 10pm)
Anything you bring will be paddled across lakes and carried over portages, therefore it’s important to pack light. Don’t worry about not having a change of clothes every day, after a few days in the woods everyone’s gonna be a bit stinky! There are no shower facilities on the trip, but you can always jump in the lake to wash off if needed.
*When cotton gets wet, you get cold. Please bring technical clothing that will wick away sweat. Wool or polyester both work great. Workout clothes are always a good bet.
