People who love to fish are thrilled with the warmer temperatures that have graced Manitoba this fall.

It means an extended season for those who can’t get enough on the water.

Lake Winnipeg and the Red River still haven’t frozen.

Even in late November, Garther Cheung and Lee Nolden are still chasing the feeling of another catch.

“Any time you can be on open water fishing in November it’s phenomenal,” said Cheung.

A former guide in northern Manitoba, Nolden moved from the United States to fish here, over 30 years ago.

Nolden who has picked up nickname of ‘The Godfather’ of Lake Winnipeg, doesn’t recall a fall quite like this.

“Not this nice, no,” Nolden said on Sunday from Cheung’s boat. “Not that I can remember that somebody can get out fish and things,” he added.
