Welcome to our Minaki, Ontario Fishing Home Page

Minaki is home to the Winnipeg River system.  The fishing can be very good here for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, muskie and more.  This area has plenty of resorts, but it is much less crowded than nearby Kenora.  It’s not too far either in case you needed to make a trip back into the popular town of Kenora.  Most anglers come here to fish the Winnipeg River system, however, there are plenty of other lakes here to fish as well.

Primary Species of Fish

Walleye, Northern Pike, Muskie & Smallmouth Bass

The Winnipeg River system is the main body of water to fish in this area and it has good populations of walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass and muskie.  You can catch trophy fish of all species too, which is awesome.

Secondary Species of Fish

Lake Trout, Perch, Crappie

You can also catch lake trout in some of the area lakes that offer deeper, cooler waters.  Perch and crappie are here too, so if you want to target panfish, you can.  Some of these lakes have a lot of perch also, so you will most likely catch more perch than crappie depending where and how you are fishing.
