Having trouble finding lodging for your May or June fishing trip?

The official kick-off to summer in Sunset Country begins with the opening of walleye season (May 18th, 2024) on the May Long weekend! This is the weekend before Memorial Day weekend in the U.S.

If you are looking for a place to stay in May or June and are having trouble finding lodging, there have been some cancellations at some of the lodges in Sunset Country. It's normally very hard to get into a place in Sunset Country in May or June, so take advantage of these cancellations. Pick up an extra fishing trip or book one in the week you want. 

Visit these member websites by clicking on the name of the accommodation. Book directly with the lodge by calling or emailing them. Don't delay as these prime-time fishing weeks will fill up!
