April 3rd, and after a night of rain we are anticipating some snow later today. Here’s a foggy view of what things look like this morning…
Before this cold front we had some beautiful weather. Conditions were right to go back into some of the portage lakes with gas for the summer and a chance to do a bit of fishing…
So as you can see it was a great day. We ended up with 3 trout and a burbot which will be in the fryer this weekend. Ice and travel conditions were excellent although parts of the trail were down to bare ground.
Here’s a few more fishing related pictures from earlier…
I know that some of you may be bored in isolation at home so here’s a brief video to get you thinking about fishing…. “Fishing with Gord”
So there you have it….current ice conditions. If you haven’t already put in a guess this might be an opportune time!
As you can see we are going ahead with getting things ready to go for opening, but it’s obvious that the situation with this virus may have impacts going forward. Only time will tell but I do appreciate all of you who have “hung in there” with your current reservations. To cover all our bases I’ve put together my 2021 reservation book. In the event that things remain closed it may be wise to give some consideration to making alternate plans. I’m hoping that in a worse case scenario affected bookings will be moved forward to the same week in 2021. Current deposits will be carried forward, and quoted rates will not change for those already booked. Let’s hope this season is as normal as possible and we’ll see most of you up here!
May xxx for ice out🙂 (edited to keep date confidential)
Aren’t you the same guy that faked those moon landings? At least we now know who really caught those perch.
Andy, don’t be jealous of my perch.
I like the photo of a fish in your hand and a beer on ice.
A beer on the ice is worth two in the bush….
I like the photos of Susanne with her fish.
I believe Susanne appreciated your appreciation…

I’m happy to see you post some of my pics, they turned out well. Thanks again Gord for a wonderful week of fishing and your stellar hospitality, you run a first class operation, we look forward to seeing you next year!
