Cobham River boasts hundreds of miles of shoreline, thousands of acres of rivers and lakes, and even after more than 40 years of trophy Manitoba fishing, we can still offer you areas that have never been fished before.
How’s this you ask? Well Cobham River Lodge is the only lodge for hundreds of water miles, so the only fishermen to fish our Manitoba waters are the guests of Cobham River Lodge. Since our 4 star full American plan lodge only holds a maximum of 16 guests at a time, we can offer our guests a greater opportunity of landing that trophy Northern pike, or trophy Walleye than other lodges that have 400 to 800+ guests per year. This also allows us to give you one on one personal service with our staff. Here, you’re not just another fisherman, but a friend for years to come. Our guests enjoy Manitoba fishing for monster Northern Pike in one of the hundreds of cabbage filled weed 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 Canadian species such as Perch and Whitefish that give you their own unique challenge to catch.
For the Fly-Fisherman, 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 white fish feed on May flies. 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 fly-in lodge is famous for, trophy Perch can be found on the Cobham River with the largest to date being 15.36 inches weighing in at 3.6 lbs.
Now while other lodges boast that they catch and release trophy 50 inch Northern Pike year after year, we also have caught and released our share of 50 inch Northern Pike. The only difference is while they have 800+ fishermen searching for the 50 inch Northern Pike each year, we only have 140 fishermen searching. Where do you think you stand a better chance of catching a trophy of a lifetime?
