Your Experience

At Kannuk Outfitters our greatest focus is always on the customer. We offer a fully customized, guided fishing experience and will work hard to tailor each package for your needs. We have fishing rights on a large number of lakes in the Eastern region of Manitoba which includes Lake Winnipeg and Winnipeg River, and the lesser known Lake Manitoba. We also offer guided trips that range from lake trout fishing on Lake of the Woods to hunting muskies on Lac Seul located in Northwest Ontario. Take a look through our packages and be sure to contact us for any inquires. Even if you don't see a particular option listed or website there is a very good chance that we could make it happen! We have access to most species of game fish in the region on some truly legendary bodies of water.

We want Kannuk Outfitters to be your only stop for outfitting in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Ontario. We even have partners in Cozumel, Mexico! If you don't see what you are looking for, I'm sure we can point you in the right direction. 



Kannuk Outfitters has access to some of the best waters and territory in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Northwest Ontario. Kannuk Outfitters operates on dozens of bodies of water over a very large area which includes Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, Lake Diefenbaker on the South Saskatchewan River, and Lake of the Woods in Northwest Ontario. We are located out of Winnipeg, Manitoba which is a great central location to many amazing fishing opportunities in both open water and hard-water seasons.


While Kannuk Outfitters is primarily based in Manitoba and Northwest Ontario, we have two great partners in Marshland Outfitters which is based in Central Saskatchewan, and Dragon Charters, which is based in Cozumel, Mexico. Both Marshland Outfitters and Dragon Charters share the same great quality of guides, experience, and dedication to excellence that we do.


About your Guide

Matt Smith is the owner, operator, and head guide of Kannuk Outfitting. He has been guiding fishing and hunting for the past 6 years which has taken him across central Canada and all the way to Cozumel, Mexico. While growing up in Manitoba, Matt calls the central and eastern regions of the province his home waters.


Anderson's Lodge based in Sioux Lookout, Ontario gave Matt his start in guiding and he continues to guide for them today. It was here that he learned to become a true multi-species angler as he guided for walleye, muskie, northern pike, lake trout, and smallmouth bass. After a few years Matt began to head west through the early parts of the summer to guide in Northern Saskatchewan on Wollaston Lake for Minor Bay Lodge. During this time Matt would head to Cozumel, Mexico during the winters to fish with Captain Troy Ruhr of Dragon Charters. It is here that he learned how to be part of a deep sea fishing crew and began fly fishing for bonefish in Cozumel's remote northern lagoons. 

Matt is also an accomplished hunting guide. He has been guiding bear hunts for Ryan Marsh, owner of Marshland Outfitting, for the last two seasons in Central Saskatchewan, along with guiding fishing charters. He has also guided moose hunts for the last two seasons for Agassiz Outfitters, based in Northern Manitoba.
