Post blizzard ice out update…

I usually like to wait for some changes in ice melt before posting an update, but why not go in reverse?  More snow (14 inches!) has created the illusion that spring has avoided NW Ontario.  But never mind.  Like they say, “out like a lion, in like a lamb”.  I’m counting on seeing some sheep grazing the lawns here at the lodge very soon.  Till then here’s a few shots of the extreme spring of 2014.  Pictures were taken on April 1….and believe me this is not much of a joke.


I just couldn’t take it any longer.   The road was down to about 6 feet wide.  Time for the heavy equipment!



For those familiar with the Co-op in Vermilion Bay.  Some snow bank!


Never fear!  Spring will arrive.  You can count on high water levels, great fishing and owners happy to see some green grass, open water and warmer temps!


I really love having a tractor on days like these!

Have your Ice Out date picked yet?  You better get cracking.

Thank you very much for making my get a way week so enjoyable. Dan and I had a great time. You and Susanne should be commended on how clean and well maintained your cabins and lodge are. I will recommend you to anyone that is looking to go to Canada fishing and I look forward to the time I can come back.
