It has been great so far. Our guests have been so happy to see us and even happier to be back in the bush.
Once the border opened, so did the heavens. We have had a ton of rain since the beginning of August. More than 12 inches up north with less towards Findlay and Loree and down south. The Cobham, Vee, Cherrington and Blackbirch have come up 3 feet! It has made moving people interesting at times and a few fishermen got some extra nights in the bush because of it, but we got everyone moved safely when Mother Nature decided to let us finish the job.
The fresh water and increased flow have put the fish near the moving water. They are also still on the mid-lake reefs. Basically everywhere. They are very active. Pike attacks are common on small walleye right now as well. Many guests so far have said that the fishing has been the best that they have ever had, numbers and size. Tons of walleyes 25 plus and most groups catching a number of 40 plus pike. The high water seems to have made them go crazy. The camps are running well with very few problems. It feels great to be back in business and to be doing what we were meant to do. We have gotten lots of pictures from our guests and we will be doing a fishing wrap up soon.
Life needs water and the north is full of it. There is lots of green already showing up in the burn and there are other signs of life like mushrooms growing already.

Taina has been doing a great job on our Instagram page. We have seen a ton of new traffic and are gaining quite the following. Some of our videos have gone viral! 🙂
Here are some links to some of the Reels:
Jack got to make his first overnight trip to the bush with the boys. No mom. He was perfect. Almost 3, he is a handful at times. But put him in the bush with just me and Aaron he was so happy. He helped us rebuild a new outhouse at the Point cabin and caught his first fish on his own! The fishing right above the rapids at the pullover was awesome in 6 to 10 feet. He had 4 or 5 on before Aaron and I had 2. It was pretty awesome to see the light switch turn on when he figured it out.
