Pinawa Lund Mania

Pinawa Lund Mania
A 1 day Catch-Record-Release Walleye fishing tournament on the Winnipeg River in Pinawa, Manitoba.

Pinawa is very proud and honoured to be the host community for the Canadian Lund Mania Fishing Tournament. ­ The only one in Canada! This annual event is held on Pinawa’s Birthday Weekend (third Saturday in July).  

This event heralds the first walleye tournament to be held on the Winnipeg River, one of the walleye wonders of the world. Special regulations within the nearby Whiteshell Provincial Park have created a world-class trophy walleye fishery, and utilizing the Catch-Record-Release format enables competitive anglers to sample this exceptional stretch of river. 

Open to the first 60 teams to register and pay a $400 entry fee, Lund Mania attracts some of the finest walleye anglers in the region. To qualify, participants must operate and fish from a Lund boat. Paired with a non-fishing spotter, competing teams can register up to six walleyes on tournament day. The top three teams will each win a new Lund Boat, Motor and Trailer.
