Tobias Becker and Ellen Whitmore met in the Biosystems Engineering Program at the University of Manitoba. During a couple of the summers Ellen headed off to a Northern Manitoba Fishing Camp to work as a server/housekeeper and Tobias returned to the family farm. After Ellen graduated they moved out to Tobias’s parents cattle farm in the spring of 2012 to help with the farm operation during the summer. Let’s just say Ellen had a lot of learning to do and Tobias had a lot of laughing to do (there is a good electric fence story here). As winter came along, the farm work became less and Tobias and Ellen started engineering jobs in the city of Winnipeg.
The opportunity to take on the operation of Shining Falls Lodge proved to be irresistible for the two of them. With their combined love of working in the outdoors and appreciation of Manitoban Wilderness (many wilderness canoe stories here), Tobias and Ellen knew Shining Falls was right for them.
With breathtaking scenery and some of the best walleye and northern pike fishing to be had this is one Manitoba fishing experience you don't want to miss.
They have the enthusiasm and the endless energy necessary to ensure that every guest gets the attention and fantastic memories they deserve! Ellen and Tobias are determined to provide a wilderness fishing adventure that pleases everyone from the hardcore fisher person to the “I’ll just take the pictures” person. They both love the beauty of the Eastern Manitoba Boreal Forest and want to share it with everyone they can.
