2013 Fish Winnipeg

Due to higher than anticipated levels on the Red and Assiniboine rivers, Fish Winnipeg hit the road and headed to Crowduck Lake for a day of fishing. Once the 14 boats were loaded, everyone was off to the races to reel in their catch.

From the smiles on eveyrones faces at the end of the day, it was another successful event. Over 175 Walleye, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass were caught showcasing the talent of all involved. After a bus ride back to the Forks in the heart of Winnipeg, participants enjoyed a catered dinner and the Awards were announced.

After the results were tallied, followed by a hush of silence and expectation, Priority Restoration (team comprised of Karen and Glen Smith) were crowned the 2013 Fish Winnipeg Champions with a catch of 51 fish. A big congratultions also goes out to Jake who fished with the gents from Swancoat investments who landed the biggest fish while Amber (last name with held of course) received the Conservation Award for helping conserve the resource for others ;).

Fish Winnipeg would like to extend a big thank you to all of our corporates sponsors, volunteers, guides, companies who donatored prizes and bait, and to those who joined us at Crowduck Lake. YOu are the reason why this program is successful and continues to provide quality angling opportunties for our youth.
