We have been very steady here at Amik Outposts, showing our guests the great times we are known for.  Walleyes have gone down to 14 to 20 feet of water.  The trophy pike have been quiet lately but there was a 40 inch northern caught and released on the Cobham the other day.

The fire ban just went off today and the fire situation has calmed down a lot.  We have not had much rain but enough to dampen down the bush again.    Here are some pictures I took from the beginning to now, which I hope is near the end of our fire season.

When the fires first started, in the morning there was just a small line of smoke to fly over depending on the wind direction.

Then as the wind blows in different directions and more fires begin to burn, it gets smoky.

It was up to 100+ up here, I heard from some of our fishermen that the smoke cut down the sun's heat.

After some rain and cooler temperatures, some of the fires are out. This one is! The skies are clear once again.

Jeanette lake had some decking replaced on the main walkway to the cabin and the deck. The summer sure is flying by. It won't be long until we are closing camps, fixing docks, putting on some new roofs, and hopefully doing a little fishing myself.
