Excellent fishing, amenities and food. It was a wonderful and amazing experience especially how remote this place is and stunning. Tobias, Ellen and their staff were great and very friendly. Would love to visit again along with my family.
I have just returned from a 4 day trip to Shining falls lodge and the best way to describe it is EXCELLENT. The staff were very friendly, very helpful and very professional. The rooms were very clean and fully equipped. The food was totally awesome. Shining falls lodge offers fantastic freshwater fishing and a great place for taking a swim or just relax.. lifetime experience provided by a wonderful host.
Shining Falls Lodge offers spectacular freshwater fishing with top notch accommodations. The staff is attentive and committed to producing a memorable and fulfilling experience for their guests, and the owners couldn't be a more lovely couple. Don't let the float plane only access deter you. The remote location in no way translates to roughing it. Accommodations are comfortable and the meals (should you chose the meal package) are unbelievable. Sit-down breakfasts and dinners, and shore fish fries for lunch provided perfect breaks from long days fishing on the water. Their fleet of boats are all well maintained and include fish finders. Finding a good honey hole is easy just by following the staff's fishing advice, but for that trophy pike, I felt it worth taking advance of their guide service. The cabins offer fully stocked kitchens should you chose to prepare you own means, and the screened in porches overlooking the lake are perfect for relaxing after catching your limit of walleye. There's also plenty to keep you busy when you want to give the fish a rest, between hiking the trail to the falls, or taking a swim from the lodge's sand beach.…
Excellent fishing, amenities and food. I was not expecting the food to be so amazing in regards to how remote this place is. I gained 5lbs on the four day American plan. The various sore lunches were something to look forward to each day. The place is taken care of and the staff have a watchful eye to make sure you have everything you need and more.
I was part of a group of 17 men who stayed at Shining Falls Lodge and fished Family Lake for 5 days. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The fishing was great, the 16 ft. boats have easy starting motors. depth finders, and bilge pumps. They can be adapted to seat 3 people very comfortably. Toby and Ellen and Staff are the perfect hosts for this remote fly-in lodge. Their hospitality is beyond all expectations! The cabins are fully equipped for the housekeeping plan or you can go the American plan route. You absolutely have to try one of their shore lunches with a surprise dessert to finish a great tasting meal with appetizers. I strongly encourage you contact Toby and Ellen and schedule a reservation...you will remember your trip of a lifetime! Ed Bean
This was my third trip to Shining Falls and the fishing, hospitality, food, and lodging continues to amaze me. Monster pike and consistent walleye! My buddies go every year and I go on occasion but will be yearly now. Our group caught around ten 35”-43” pike in 2 days. You won’t find anyone else doing it better than Tobias and Ellen!
Great walleye and northern pike fishing in remote northern Manitoba. Boats, maps, advice and directions provided. Equipment and help for novice fishermen. Coved safe but relaxed atmosphere. Days start with coffee delivered to cabins. The food was too good. Shore lunches arranged daily . fantastic food, Family run business with amazing helpful and motivated staff. Kayaking available.
Whether you are focussed on your search for the best fishing in Manitoba or you would just love to getaway into the beautiful isolated lake country, Shining Falls Lodge will fit your needs. With paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes and a beautiful sand beach, people of all ages can enjoy the accommodations and the amazing hospitality of hosts Tobias and Ellen! They are absolutely amazing and put their hearts and souls into giving guests the best experience possible. It is a great experience for both experienced and inexperienced anglers and I can guarantee that by the end of your stay you will have reeled in more fish that you can imagine! I highly recommend bringing the whole family and making memories that will last a life time! This is one trip that is an absolutely must!
WOW !! I have spent a lot of time on the water since fishing is one of the passions of my life, and Shining Falls Lodge provides some of the best fishing I have ever had. Whether you like still fishing on calm water or the tranquility of fishing the current of an isolated river, this location has it. On top of that, the staff and management at the lodge were friendly and very accommodating.....the food was to die for, and just kept getting better by the day. Starting the day off at 7am with coffee delivered to your cabin was a wonderful touch and shore lunch by the river is something that will not disappoint. Cabins were very comfortable and the location of the lodge couldn't have been better. Boats were well equipped, and if you got tired of fishing (which I didn't), you also had access to a beach for swimming as well as paddle boards, canoes and kayaks...I would be very surprised if you left Shining Falls Lodge feeling that you had not just experienced the time of your life !!

This is the first time I am writing a review of any sort. Generally I don’t take the time to offer my feedback but I really feel compelled to promote this lodge. Honestly, I cannot say enough about Ellen and Tobias and Shining Falls Lodge. We travel extensively and this fishing lodge far surpassed our expectations. Service - outstanding, friendly, professional Food - plentiful and DELICIOUS!!! Ellen makes everything homemade - incredible meals and daily fresh baking!!! Shore lunches - something special you won’t forget! Boats - well maintained and clean - gassed up daily Accommodations - basic cabins (after all it is a remote fishing camp) - but very clean, nice showers and well equipped kitchens. Also nice screened-in porches. Fresh linens as required and daily cleaning. Fishing - there’s no shortage of fish to catch!!! Common areas - the beach and the lodge are great places to hang out. And....for those who don’t “eat breath and sleep” fishing, there are hiking trails, kayaks, canoes, paddle boards, swimming and relaxing on the sandy beach area. Oh ya - and fresh coffee delivered to your cabin every morning prior to breakfast - Bonus!!! Ellen and Tobias go out of their way to meet your needs and make your trip special. They are not only wonderful hosts but overall just an amazing couple (their boys are pretty special too :) We highly recommend you considering Shining Falls for your next fishing trip - you won’t be disappointed!
