We are planning our first trip up to Lake Winnipeg at the end of February. I know there are a lot of guys on here that make yearly trips up there. Where does everyone stay and then get on the lake at? I have been doing some research but wanted to get some expert opinions.

You can stay at the hote in Selkirk and south beach casino which is on the east side their is a little motel in Winnipeg beach and numerous people who rent their cabins out. That is what we do. West side access are Matlock and chalet beach. Not really access's kind of just where the road ends and and meets the lake. East side has Pruden Creek Patricia beach and balsam harbor. Some access are better than others depending on snow drifts and such. Be prepared it's a big lake and not much around for help as far as resorts or anything. Keep an eye on the weather. Can get windy and white out conditions in a hurry and you don't want to be caught out in that eapecially if it's your first time. Oh and FYI big baits=big fish.

I have been going since 98 and have networked with many locals over the years, but you can google some as well. If they are full ask if they have any neighbors.

Not trying to hijack but I went for first time last March and loved it. But was looking at going earlier like January or February. What is a better time?

March is typically the best....Jan Feb about the same...can be brutally cold then but the river is more of an option then as well

I have found cabins for rent on Craigslist before but I try not to make to many reservations because then you are stuck and have to go those dates no matter the forecast of the weather. There are also several hotels in Gimli, which is just North of Chalet Beach, that you can google and find pretty easy. I like staying in Gimli because there are a couple decent bars and Brennivins Pizza joint has some awesome food.

We have stayed at the Selkirk Inn, Hamilton house, but mostly at the South Beach. There is a new hotel called the Canalta in Selkirk. It looks really nice, but is the most expensive. As far as accesses I would suggest to plan to be flexible because you never know what ice conditions are going to be like and that will dictate what access you want to go out of.

Get your trip lodging booked asap, South Beach is basically booked for March already.

One more question as I get ready to book lodging. I have found some rental homes in both Selkirk and Gimli. Which would be most recommended? I was leaning towards Selkirk b/c it would allow us to go either east or west side to access the lake. If we stay in Gimli we would be more limited to the west side.
