2006 BROCHURE COBHAM RIVER LOCATION
The Cobham River Lodge is located 235 miles northeast of Winnipeg, Manitoba. We are on the east side of Lake Winnipeg in an area that has only winter roads extending north.
The Cobham River originates in Deer Lake, Ontario and flows for hundreds of miles before arriving at the Cobham River Lodge. The river varies from six to fifty feet in depth, is one half mile wide at its widest area and twenty feet at some of the rapids. To give you an idea of the size of the fishing area, you could fish the shoreline for a lifetime and never fish the same area twice.
About a half mile from the Lodge is a junction called the “Cut”. The cut is where the Cobham River joins the Palsen River. The Palsen River originates at Palsen Lake, Ontario and flows hundreds of miles before ending its journey at the cut. At this junction the Cobham River continues its journey north to Hudson Bay, Bear laying on the shorelineover 1500 water miles away.
Just 15 minutes north of the Lodge by boat lies Elliott Lake. This lake, with its bays and surrounding river area, is covered with “cabbage weed.” These weeds are the favorite of the really big Northern Pike.
There are very few days that our guests cannot fish because of high winds or rough water. There is usually a calm bay nearby with excellent fishing out of the wind. You will never be more than a few hundred yards from either shore.
The Canadian wildlife in the area is abundant. We have our share of black bear, so always be watching for them while taking that evening walk. It’s not uncommon to watch beaver, otter, moose, or bear swimming in the river as well as inland caribou during the early morning hours. Don’t forget your camera!
