Located about 45 minutes north of Kenora, Minaki is a beautiful resort town. Take Highway 596 north off of the Kenora By-pass (Highway 17A). The region has a number of quality resorts, lodges, and campgrounds. Area lakes and rivers, including the mighty Winnipeg River and English River Systems, offer tremendous fishing for walleye, muskie, northern pike and bass.
