Hunting & Fishing


The pristine waters of Snow Lake and the numerous surrounding lakes offer the angler the opportunity to catch Walleye (Pickerel), Northern Pike (Jack), Lake Trout, Rainbow Trout and numerous other miscellaneous species.

There are six major road accessible master angler lakes in the Snow Lake area including Snow Lake, Wekusko Lake, Herblett Lake, Corman’s Lake, Tramping Lake, and Osborne Lake, as well as the Grass River. Nine more major lakes are accessible by trails including Niblock Lake, Vikers Lake, Loonhead Lake, Corley Lake, Morton Lake, File Lake, Dolomite Lake, Buzz Lake and Dyce Lake. In addition, six more major lakes are accessible via winter roads which include such lakes as Squall Lake, Mcleod Lake, Cook Lake, Ham Lake, Woosey Lake and Morgan Lake. There is also a huge number of smaller lakes, some of which may not have been named yet, which one may fish.

A license is required in order to fish on any of the above waters. Check your conservation license to see the number of the various fish you are entitled to possess at any one time. It is important to note that High Quality Management lakes exist in the Snow Lake area and that the Angling Guide available from any Conservation office should be consulted regarding all fishing regulations on any waters in the area.   The season is officially closed for part of May during spawning to permit the fish to replenish their numbers. Check with Conservation or your Angler's Guide to find out the dates. It is important to note that all fishing in Manitoba is now "barbless”. For complete information consult the 2016 Angler's Guide or call (800) 214-6497.
