Ganglers North Seal River Lodge

A unique lodge, a unique area, a unique fishery……

North Seal River Lodge offers you an experience no other Canadian lodge match. An exclusive 5,000,000 acre area, exquisite accommodations, a grand lodge, warm , personalized service, and Canada’s most exciting multi-species trophy fishery make for the epitome of Canadian fishing trips. You’ve never experienced anything like Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge. But we promise, once you do, you’ll want to make it a habit.

We realize that picking a fishing trip can be exciting yet frustrating at the same time. So many choices. What’s the best trip for me? Here’s what makes Gangler’s so special!

Established in 1985, Gangler’s has long been recognized as the benchmark for extraordinary Canadian fishing trips. Gangler’s North Seal River Lodge and outposts were opened in 1998 and is the third lodge / fishery we have developed in our 25 years. Why the North Seal? We had already developed two very successful lodges and could have easily have stayed where we were. However, the North Seal was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity simply too special to pass up.

The North Seal River area was the last undeveloped Canadian fishery below the treeline, almost 200 miles from the closest road. There are no other lodges in this area, no roads, no communities and no commercial fishing. It’s a vast stretch of untouched water and wilderness. Our exclusive allocation stretches over 7200 sq. miles, a unique area where 12 river systems merge to form over 100 lakes and merge with one of Canada’s greatest rivers, the North Seal. The fishery is truly special – offering Canada’s finest opportunity to enjoy trophy fishing for the Canadian Grand Slam (northern pike, lake trout, walleye, and arctic grayling) in one setting. The waters are comfortable and diverse, ranging in size from 6 to over 20 miles long, offering protected water with no long boat rides. In 2008, Gangler’s boasted Manitoba’s largest pike and lake trout and 7 out of the top 15 pike taken in Manitoba.

A great fishery is only as good as the outfitter who develops it. Our reputation is founded on over 30 years of experience and referral and another 10 as guests. Yes, well before we became outfitters, we were guests ourselves, with Canadian trips an annual family tradition. Along with great fishing, we recognized the other important intangibles- warmth, ambience , first-class equipment and accommodations – that create a truly memorable trip ! It is with all of these intangibles in mind that we designed our first lodge.

One extremely important intangible is size. Many Canadian lodges hold 40,50, even 60 people. As nice as they may be, it just doesn’t make sense to us to fly to a remote camp just to settle in with another horde of people. That’s what guests are trying to leave behind. If leaving the dock in the morning resembles rush hour in Chicago, what’s the point?

At Ganglers, we have made camp sizes a priority and our philosophy is to keep our camps small. By limiting the main lodge to only 24 guests and the outposts to 8 each, each guest is ensured the personalized attention he or she deserves. Each camp is designed to be unique in layout and flavor and all accommodations are 5 star and recognized as the finest in the North.

This is the story behind Ganglers. An outstanding fishery, run by a family of outfitters with a proven record of providing Canada’s finest fishing trips. Quality, quantity, variety in a first-class setting. Dream a little bigger…..And let us turn it into reality.

How It Works

Overnight accommodations are at the Lakeview Trademark by Wyndham (formerly Four Point by Sheraton) across the street from the Winnipeg Airport. You may call directly to make reservations under Gangler’s (204-775-5222 ext. 7124). The Trademark by Wyndham is located a short walk or bus ride from the main terminal. Hotel pickup service is available. Usually only one overnight layover is required on the trip North. Guests arriving in Winnipeg will be met by our expediter. Simply pack an overnight bag and our expediters will take the rest of the gear to the charter plane the next morning – no lugging that bulky baggage around! They can even advise on the current Winnipeg hotspots and dining.

Early the next morning, our expediters will transport you to the charter aircraft for your flight to the lodge. Charter flights are located at the opposite end of the airport and usually depart 5:30 AM. Due to our far Northern location, a short fuel stop in Thompson, MB is usually required. Planes will arrive at the lodge around 9 AM. On your return, all guests should depart the lodge by 10:30 AM and be back in Winnipeg by 2 PM for flights home later that day. Do not book return flights until 2:45 PM or later.

Departing the aircraft you will be greeted warmly. Once off the plane, you can walk the path to the lodge or if you need assistance we can transport you there by golf cart or ATV. At the lodge there will be hot coffee and some small breakfast items like muffins, fruit or yogurt depending on the chefs selection for that day. Main lodge guests will enjoy a hearty brunch before going fishing.
