Where does the time go? Another season is almost done as we head into September. The weather has continued to be great, sunshine and dry although we have had a lot of wind. It always seems like fall gives summer a big push and we get a bunch of wind most years. It makes fishing tougher and it also causes the lake temperatures turn over leading into fall. This puts the bigger fish down into 20-35 feet of water. Trying to catch fish in deep water is tough enough, never mind in a 20 knot wind. 🙂 The more experienced fall fishermen have been doing great but it is tough in the wind for everyone. We are supposed to get some rain over the next couple of days and that should hopefully let the weather settle down a bit and freshen up the lakes.
All of our guests have been heading home with smiles on their faces already looking forward to next year, in the bush with no cell service or internet, a beautiful view and a lake full of fish.
Here are some pictures from the Otter.
My grandson, Jack had to have his first plane ride. I wasn’t about to let it be with anyone but me. He sat with me for most of the flight and took to it naturally. He monitored the gauges and had his hand out the window just like I do. 🙂 I am sure in the years to come he will be my right hand on most flights.
The view for the morning coffee is pretty special. I had a lot of these mornings but fall is coming. The weather is going to change…..
We have started to do some jobs at some of the camps and get to spend the odd night in the Bush. Colten caught this nice walleye on Cherrington.
The fire situation is pretty good, a couple of newer fires had started to act up and the Cobham fire continues to live on. It has been going for 2 months or more. It is not very active but breathes once in awhile and throws up some smoke. Far from the camp now. Our guests are amazed at the size of the area that was burned during the fires earlier this summer.
We will be getting work done at the camps soon and closing things up for the season in a few weeks. Our 25th season with Amik Outposts has been a great one so far. We see certain people at certain times of year and it signifies what point in the season you are. Our fall people are showing up. The leaves are changing and the geese and sandhill cranes have started to move. Fall is upon us. It will be hunting season soon!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
