Notes 

The film is one of three fishing films (along with "To Catch a Fish" and "The Mighty Ones") produced for the Bureau of Travel and Publicity in 1955: "All were dynamic action movies designed to attract anglers to Manitoba's lakes and streams." The films received wide distribution in Canada and the United States, through the National Film Board, television, sport clubs and service organizations. See Department of Industry and Commerce Annual Report, 1956.

The film highlights the successful fishing ventures of several anglers vacationing in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve. The film stresses the abundance and quality of fish in Manitoba lakes.
