Early Fall in the Parkland Region of Manitoba with Betty and Steve MacKenzie
Betty and Steve MacKenzie just got back from a fly fishing tour that included a stop at several lakes in the Parkland Region of Manitoba. Betty said that Twin Lake was a little slower than they're used to but they caught some nice tigers on floating backswimmers. Betty and Steve camped at East Goose Lake, and despite the lack of amenities, it was great to be so close to the wonderful fishing at West Goose Lake. The rainbows and browns were really biting and they had a couple of great days
there. Betty and Steve even caught 2 rainbows that had tags on the dorsal fin. The MacKenzies then camped at Patterson Lake for a week and the fishing was excellent there. They had time to try lots of different spots, and enjoying spotting and stalking the big browns along the reeds. Where they fished often depended on the wind direction that day! Balanced leeches and backswimmers were the best flies.
Betty and Steve left just as the weather was taking a turn for the worst, and got to
Alberta just as the weather was warming up!
...and then they stopped at Bullshead!
