Surrounded by wilderness, Lake Winnipegosis is popular for lake trout, northern pike, perch and walleye sport fishing. More than 80% of local commercial fishing is northern pike and mullet. From November until May, the lake is frozen, providing a long ice fishing season. Hunters come to the surrounding wilderness for deer, elk, moose, bears and geese. For those who love the great outdoors, there are numerous hiking trails on the lake shores.
