We have been busy as a beaver up here. Many fishermen coming and going. The weather has continued to be warm and sunny. This past weekend is always one of our busiest. More times than I can remember, the weather has sucked for flying. This year though, the weather was great! Calm in the morning with no fog. In the air before the sun, it is nice to have a coffee and watch it come up from 3000 feet. A 12 hour day of flying is tough but much easier if the weather is good 🙂 Moving happy fishermen to and from the camps, the overall report from last week was that it started out slow and got better everyday. The fish were in their lull after the spawn but have come out of it with a bang. Numbers were good but down a bit over other years but that has changed to crazy numbers from the fishermen who came out today. A group at Cherrington yesterday caught 150 walleye in 4 hours and they were all in the 22-24 inch range!! Not a bad afternoon for 4 guys.
It is getting very dry in the north. I suspect that the first batch of storms we get will ignite a few fires. We are cautioning our guests to be very careful with any fire while out there having shorelunch or having a campfire at night. Remember you would be responsible for the cost of putting it out if you are the cause of it! There is no fire ban on yet and it can all change tomorrow if we get some rain. The dry weather has been nice though as we had very high water on our northwest lakes from Blackbirch to the Cobham but almost all of the docks are out of the water now from 2 feet over the dock 3 weeks ago.
Here are a few pictures from the past few groups who fished with us so far.
