AURORA Ice Fishing Expeditions
Experienced Fishing Guides
Richard Danielson is AURORA’s Angling Outfitter based out of Cranberry Portage, Manitoba. Anglers from the beginner to the avid will find the fishing experience they expect as Richard and his family have been fishing these northern Manitoba waters for generations.
Richard has been a successful angling guide for over three decades so he knows where to go on the waters of Lake Athapapuskow and the lakes of the Grass River Provincial Park to find trophy Walleye, Northern Pike, and Lake Trout. He loves to share the teachings that have been passed down to him for generations with others – he goes out of his way to make an enjoyable fishing experience.
