Blue Waters Inn and Guide Service, Pine Falls, Manitoba

Riverside Inn and Guided Fishing for Manitoba Walleyes

Located on the Shores of the Winnipeg River across from Pine Falls, Manitoba, Canada. This is the Home of the Greenback Walleye!
Our Country Inn overlooks the Manitou Rapids from the north side of the river just across from Pine Falls. Blue Waters is an 18 room 3050 ft² lodge-style structure built on 8½ beautiful acres. Forested by Oaks, the property overlooks the rapids which are one of the few places along this part of the river open year-round. This is a quiet secluded location where you and your friends or family can relax after a day on the water. Enjoy fishing on the famous Winnipeg River, boating to Lake Winnipeg, visiting the surrounding communities, playing at the beaches, hiking the trails, or road tour to Nopaming Park or perhaps Grand Beach. Depending on the season, we have guides to take you straight to the best fishing.

Blue Waters Inn on the River at Pine Falls

The lodge features 6 bedrooms with two on the ground floor and four upstairs. Two of the rooms have river views. The ground floor includes our kitchen and dining areas, as well as a lounging area where you can unwind, swap fish tales, and enjoy the big screen satellite T.V. and music center. On the second floor you'll enjoy the use of a sauna, an exercise room, and balcony that faces the setting sun. On the side facing the river there is a 40x12 ft screened in porch with 6 person spa.

At the waterfront you find a rocky shoreline with a small sand beach next to our docks and deck jutting out over the water. You can catch several species of fish right from the shore, docks, and deck, including, walleye, sauger, perch, northerns, and several species of bass. Although we are right at the rapids, our piece of waterfront is mostly in a slow back current where you can enjoy unsupervised swimming.

On summer vacation? Perhaps you and your friends or family would enjoy a guided boat tour of the river. Pack along a lunch and enjoy some time on one of the many beaches in the area. There a good chance to see wildlife too since this area is a haven for waterbirds and animals like otter, deer, moose, bear, and others. Looking for an exciting day of fishing? Our guides have 15 to 20 years of experience fishing the magnificent Winnipeg River. We can also take you by boat to Traverse Bay and Lake Winnipeg, as well as guide you to our favourite fishing holes on both sides of the Powerview Dam.
