Greetings all! Well here we are through six weeks of the season already…another blink of the eye! I want to start by updating everyone on the fire situation up here as I have been fielding a lot of phone calls with concerned guests about their upcoming trip.
Despite the continued VERY dry conditions we have had here (we did get a nice 2″ rain last week), we are fortunate to not have any fires in our immediate area. We are getting some occasional smoke when the wind is right, but certainly nothing like what I am hearing about the air quality conditions back in the USA. We do remain under a restricted fire order and we still desperately need some more rain, but for now we are doing quite well everything considered. I will update here and on our Facebook platforms if there are any major changes to this information.
Otherwise it’s pretty much been business as usual here in camp. Still a lot of good fishing the past two weeks, however an early mayfly hatch and some brutal heat has made the mid-day walleye bite slow up from what it had been. Mornings and evenings have still been producing good catches of walleyes for most guests, and the smallmouth and pike fishing has been on fire with many big smallies being caught and a lot of eater northern with some occasional fish over the slot. Starting to get more of the family vacationer’s in camp now so the time on the water is less, but the fun and memories certainly isn’t any less. It is always fun and rewarding watching the young kids running around camp and the docks playing and sharing stories of their big catches that day.
I was fortunate during week 5 to have my youngest daughter (Allison) here in camp along with her boyfriend Jake and my son-in-law Cody. While Jake was a newby to the Canadian fishing thing, he caught on quick and was soon hoisting fish over the rail regularly. Cody and Allison, veterans of many trips to camp, certainly held their own, and even I was able to break away almost every day for some time on the water with them.
We have a lot of summer still ahead of us and a few openings during some great fishing weeks in August and September. Give us a call if you are looking for that much needed break from life and join us in camp for some peace and quiet, beautiful scenery, and of course some great fishing.
Be good till next time!
