Eagle Nest Fishing Lodge
Eagles Nest Fishing Lodge is the ultimate natural playground that your father needs to go to. Let him feel like a kid again this Father’s Day with a weekend staying out at the Winnipeg River. The main lodge dates back to 1950 when it was used a residential house. Fred and Jo-Anne Pedruchny bought it in 1975, and in 1978, the construction of Eagle Nest Lodge began.
A typical day at the lodge starts at 7 am with coffee delivered right to your door. The staff serves a hearty Canadian breakfast before heading out on the water for the first fishing session. Lunchtime is spent on the shores of one of their most scenic spots, dining on your freshly caught fish. You then head back out for more fishing, what more does dad need? Eagle Nest Fishing Lodge
