Manitoba's Trophy Pike
Silsby Lake Lodge is a world class fly-in Trophy Pike and Walleye fishing lodge located 450 miles north of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Silsby Lake is simply loaded with TROPHY PIKE. It is very common for guests to catch and release multiple trophy pike in the 41" to 53" range. The camp record pike was caught in August of 1999 and it measured a whopping 53.5 inches. In addition, guests have caught and released as many as 26 trophies during one trip! Location, forage, structure, habitat, catch and release and low fishing pressure makes Silsby one of Canada's best trophy pike fisheries.

At night, the guests enjoy sitting in the lounge or on the verandah, watching a ball game or playing cards.

Even though Silsby Lake Lodge practices catch-and-release fishing, just enough fish are kept from the morning's catch to enjoy a shore lunch of fresh fish cooked over an open fire.
