We are happy to show off our new website as we finally get back to business! We are just getting our feet wet to fine tune a few things and learn how to update and maintain with new pictures and video. Our guests have been catching an absolute ton of fish and have sent us a bunch of new photos already. Canadianflyinfishing.com will evolve throughout the summer.
This is our 29th season. We have never seen anything like this. With a record amount of snow this winter and more rain than we normally get every week, we have been thrown many curve balls so far. Hence, no recent blog posts, we have been busy.
From sand bagging our base our base in Red Lake to dealing with an extra 5-7 feet of water on the Cobham, 4-5 feet on Vee and BlackBirch and 2 feet at least everywhere else we have had to find a way to operate. All of the cabins were high and dry but docks, sheds, walkways, water pumps and docks were all either under water or floated away. \We had to come up with ways to get to shore to open camps as well as being able to move fishermen in and out of the bush. We came up with different plans at each camp but we figured it out and didn’t miss and it wasn’t too difficult if it was calm.
We had to reschedule a few guests during the first week of our season due to the ice not being off the lakes and started to open camps around May 15. We had to open camps as quickly as we could as well as figure out how and where to unload but we got it done without too many problems. The water has gone down on most lakes but not all yet. We are actually docking at the dock now. Here are a few pics of some of the fun and games we had to deal with when we were finally able to get to the camps.
We had a big snow hit us when we went to open Jeanette. A moose walked right down the boardwalk right before we arrived.
After what we have endured the past couple of seasons, nothing will phase us. We have a good strong crew, we are smart and tough as nails. It did not take long for us to hit our stride. Our guests are sooo happy to be back in the bush and we are happy to be back in the game.
Jack has been tagging along on more and more trips. He is happiest when he is with us in the bush and is getting to be a big help. He has been catching fish and his personal best so far is a 23″.
The landscape is changed here and there, but we will be able to watch the forest regrow back into a forest. A Jack Pine forest must burn in order to replenish itself. Nature can be wild and unforgiving. All we can do is deal with what Mother Nature gives us.
We have had lots of happy people come through our doors already this season and we have some great pictures of some Big Fish and Beautiful Scenery. I will get a new post up next week with a fishing report and photos.
Keep an eye on our website as we will be updating photos and content as the summer goes on.
